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!

MAC Soft Frost (First time using it after purchasing it during MAC's last sale and I couldn't stop staring at my cheekbones!!! I was about to do my nose highlight absent-mindedly with it Smiley Very Happy Glad I caught myself in time before heading out!!)

Edit: According to Temptalia Becca's new highlight is 95% similar. So is NYX's Lavendar Steel.

The Sun Dipped kit is so pretty! LOL @ your brother's idea of highlight Smiley Very Happy

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@Tamara76 Beautiful glow! How do you feel on the Sundipped vs the NG?

Re: The Highlight Challenge

@makeitup305  Thanks!  I love NG and I think I can do more with it, but sundipped will be awesome for more natural looks in the summer (I totally want all the Glow Kits now!) 😊

@Tamara76 I bought the NG and I still feel a little meh about it (I've got 4 other glow kits Smiley Tongue) but I'm gonna keep playing with it. I really wish they hadn't put glitter in it.

Re: The Highlight Challenge

so pretty @Tamara76! sundipped is one of my fave glow kits Smiley Happy

 

your little brother is hilarious lol.

Re: The Highlight Challenge

Thank you!  Yeah - he's a riot - lol!  😝   @unfungirl

Re: The Highlight Challenge

Hi everyone! My name is Dina and I'm on the Sephora PRO Team. I'm a little late to the highlight challenge but I'm super excited to be sharing my photos and highlighting tips & tricks!

 

Feel free to ask me any questions! By the end of the challenge, you'll realize what a highlighting fanatic I really am!

 

What I used:

- Giorgio Armani Beauty Fluid Sheer in 7

- Benefit Cosmetics Watt's Up Cream-to-Powder Highlighter

How I used it:

1. Mix 1 pump of Armani's Fluid Sheer in with my foundation for an all-over natural glow.

2. Using my ring finger, I tapped Benefit's Watt's Up on to the high points of the face like my cheekbones, center of my nose and cupids bow.

These two products together give me a luminous glow!
