How to Highlight & My Fav Highlighting Products

Ok so how did this post slip through the cracks??
I totally thought I did this to accompany my Highlighting video when I posted it. Apparently not.
Anyhow, here it is.
Highlighting is one of those "fine line" matters. In that there is a very fine line between "candle-lit and glowy" and "disco ball frost explosion". Sounds dramatic, but it's true my friends. You also have to be careful considering that heavily frosted products (like so many highlighting products are) will do nothing but emphasize pores and fine lines when applied over them. So it's like a double "fine line" matter. ha. ha.
...Anywayyy, check out the video below for lots of my tips on how to avoid these highlighting pitfalls and to get glowy, angelic skin and to emphasize your best features by highlighting.
But first, here are my list of favorite highlighting products mentioned in the video.

Sigma F35 brush
MAC Carefree Pro Longwear Eye Shadow
MAC Shape Powder in Emphasize
MAC Cream Colour Base in Pearl
MAC Cream Colour Base in Hush
Sigma F05 brush

  11. I originally bought Mac's Mineralized Skin Finish in "Soft and Gentle" for a highlight, but it's just a whole lot of shimmer in my opinion. I think I remember you talking about "Soft and Gentle" briefly in an older video, do you still use it? Thanks for the video and post!
