The Highlight Challenge

[ Edited ]

Not to generalize, but I think it's fair to say a lot of us on BeautyTalk have a slight obsession when it comes to highlighter. For me, my highlight is the finishing touch before running out the door. Some days I aim for a natural look and other days I want to look like a glistening unicorn and I know I'm not alone. Many of us have a lot of love for each of our highlighters so it's time to show them off! 

 

Now, onto the challenge: From March 13th- April 14th let's give our highlighters some love each day by sharing details in this thread. I encourage you to get creative and be experimental with your product and technique. There are many highlight formats (liquid, powder, balms, etc.) and you can play around with the intensity of your highlight as well. Share as much or as little as you'd like, including pictures, swatches, products, tools and your favorite tips. 

 

Can't wait to see your lustrous highlight looks!

LOL!  Thanks! <3  @ZombieMetroAnt

 

***This is why I was so incredulous when a Sephora employee asked me last week if I've ever tried highlighter - I don't think this looks very natural...She was a cutie, though, and I still bought 2 more highlighters from her Smiley Happy

Re: The Highlight Challenge

I wore Tom Ford's Spin Spin Sugar mixed in with my foundation yesterday, and it definitely did not photograph at all Smiley Happy but it looked nice!

 

Today is KVD Alchemist - the blue and violet along cheekbones and eyes.

Gorgeous!  I know what you mean about photographing highlights - It really can be tough!  @unfungirl

Re: The Highlight Challenge

thanks @Tamara76! practice makes perfect!

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@unfungirl I agree, it can take a few (hundred) tries to get the lighting right. I am determined to be a highlight selfie pro by the end of this challenge!

I have the hardest time remembering to take a pic of my highlight during the day!  Luckily, I remembered on my way home from dinner and drinks with friends (don't worry - my hubby was driving).

 

I wore the new Wet n Wild pink heart highlighter called The Sweetest Bling and it had such an awesome glow that you can still see it in the dark!
