Best Highlight, and brush?

I am looking for a nice highlight color.


What's a nice color highlight for a "medium skin tone" and which brush do you recommend to use with?

Re: Best Highlight, and brush?

I have tried quite a few highlighters. I've tried all of Benefit's, The Balm's Mary lou manizer, a Vctoria's Secret highlighter, UD, and Bare Minerals. My favorite is Benefit's Watts Up. It has a champagne color to it, it's soft and creamy, and blends too well. I don't like looking like a shiny fairy or anything like that. That's why I like it because it's nice and subtle. To me, the best way to apply it is with your finger. But I would guess the Beauty Blender would work well with it. For brushes, I really like the real techniques brushes because they are so soft!

Watts Up is excellent.

Try the Dior Amber diamond highlighter! It looks really gorg on! I usually apply mine with a fan brush or even a blush brush. Smiley Very Happy

Hi lulupiee,


Are you looking for a powder or a cream highlighter? Below are some of my favorites:


Illamasqua Gleam Cream (Aurora)-Cream

NARS Albatross-Powder


Benefit Girl Meets Pearl-Cream


As far as brushes go, I usually will use my fingers for cream products, I just find that this is the best method. For powders I've been using a kabuki brush a good 90% of the time for the perfect amount of product. 



Whimsically yours,

Re: Best Highlight, and brush?

girl meets pearl & albatross are also my favorites Smiley Happy

Re: Best Highlight, and brush?

I find that creams and liquids look better than powder.  I like this one.  I buff it in with a dense foundation brush.

Re: Best Highlight, and brush?

I second that! This one is my favorite!!! And I TOTALLY agree liquid highlights look better than shimmery powder. It looks more natural too and doesn't make you look like a disco ball!

My second favorite is a bit more expensive but BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector SPF 25+. They have four dffnt colors so for medium skintones (I have medium skin tone as well) my favorite is Opal, a golden peachy color. And Moonstone is pretty also..its a gold color.
