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

This looks absolutely glorious on you!  Especially in the sunlight!  Now I regret not snagging Plisse Lumiere.   @playingdressup

Re: The Highlight Challenge

Thank you @trishavt @KatieBT @Tamara76! I do really love the smooth texture of it, that it is on the subtle end of metallic finishes, and the design of it, so I would recommend it! In practice though, it's probably not that dissimilar from other champagne highlighters... Like balm mary-lumanizer or becca moonstone.

Re: The Highlight Challenge

What a gorgeous highligher, BAM is right!

Re: The Highlight Challenge

This Chanel highlighter looks amazing on you @playingdressup I have resisted purchasing it because I have a surplus of highlighters but Im re-thinking it now... Smiley Wink

Re: The Highlight Challenge

Very pretty, @sabrinas! What blush are you wearing? 

Re: The Highlight Challenge

Lol, I was actually hoping someone would ask! It's the Holika Holika Gudetama cream blush in CR01, aka the Grapefruit one! I got it direct from a Korean online vendor.  It's actually a great blush and so so so cute! @KatieBT

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@sabrinas I just bought the plum one last week! Mainly for the Gudetama packaging, not gonna lie. But I'm glad to hear you like the formula! 

Re: The Highlight Challenge

Never heard of that brand, I'll have to check it out!

NYX Duo Chromatic in Lavender Steel (it shows better under the brow than on the cheek)...

Re: The Highlight Challenge

Love it!  It looks so pretty and natural on you!  I have this one, too and I'm super impressed with the quality.  <3   @DiVWA

Thank you @Tamara76. It did apply and blend out very nicely. 

 

I've still got Crushed Bloom in the NYX line to wear. I tried it on in store and I realized I didn't have any color like it. Do you have that particular color? It seems there are quite a few colors in this line but my local Ulta only carried about 4 of them. If you have other colors that you've been impressed with, please share! Smiley Wink

Hi @DiVWA  I have Snow Rose and Lavender Steel.  Snow Rose is really cool because it looks white, but goes on pink!  Smiley Happy

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@DiVWA wow, this really makes your lip color POP! Beautiful!

@KatieBT, thank you! When I took this photo, I didn't realize that my lipstick coordinated with the highlighter that much. I was in a purple mood, that's for sure!

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@DiVWA, Beautiful glow! Also, I really love your glasses. ❤
