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!

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@unfungirl Funny you say that cause I actually tilted my head so you couldn't see the giant spot I picked at :/ Highly recommend this foundation though! (Shiseido)

Re: The Highlight Challenge

spot or not, your skin is still sooooo pretty @makeitup305!!

 

which foundation do you use? i always forget about shiseido's makeup line!

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@unfungirl In this picture I'm wearing the Synchro Skin in Golden 3. The shade selection runs very light, is the only drawback.

ahh i am really hard to match @makeitup305, so i'm scared to order online! i'll have to see if any stores around me carry it so i can test it out!

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@makeitup305 I have the Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow Luminizing Fluid Foundation...(the name goes on but you get the point!) on my loves list. 

Btw, your skin looks amazing, which is why I'm curious to know which Shiseido foundation you're using in your photo Smiley Happy

 

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@trishavt I use the Shiseido Synchro Skin (the non glowy one). I love it. I really want to try the Luminous one. It's on my list for the 15% sale.

@makeitup305 Thanks!

Re: The Highlight Challenge

It looks great! 

Re: The Highlight Challenge

Everything about this look is perfection! @makeitup305

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@Beadshopgirl Thank you! It had been on for about 10 hours by this point so I was happy it was holding! I retouched by highlight a bit though ;0)

Looking pretty moody in this picture, ha, but this was the best photo of my highlight Smiley Happy 

 

I am oh-so obsessed with the NARS Banc De Sable palette! The packaging is (of course) beautiful and the color payoff is great for the small amount of product I used. This applies beautifully with a fan brush and I just sweep the two lightest colors together and apply to my cheekbone.

@KatieBT I love the new NARS palette, too!  You've inspired me to use the middle shade tomorrow.  😊

 

Your glow is gorgeous, as always!

Re: The Highlight Challenge

Glowing!

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@KatieBT beautiful and radiant!

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@gonerogue - That highlight looks beautiful on you! Maybe try it one more time before you give it away.  Smiley Wink

 

I concur that your eye shadow is just beyond fabulous! 😻😻😻

Re: The Highlight Challenge

I think you look beautiful! What's that on your eyes?

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@makeitup305 Aw thanks! It's a little too rose gold for my pale skin in person. I'm wearing a mac pigment in the color Tan and I topped it off with a little bit of Stila magnificent metals in Kitten (the old pot formula, not the new wand one).

@gonerogue I was about to ask you if this was that MUFE starlit you purchased.  Absolutely stunning!!

 

I also like the highlight and think it looks great.  Perhaps try layering (I saw @Tamara76 mention doing so the other day & it made me reconsider some of the highlighters I have).
