Nars blush highlighter in Albatrossglowing cheeks

This highlighter right here was my first ever highlighter and it is everything!! Do not be put off by the whitish colour. It deposits a soft yellow gold glow on the cheekbones and should be used with a light hand, building up gradually to the desired finish. It can also be used on the bridge of nose as a highlighter.

Taj Mahal is a gorgeous shimmery golden orange blush that can be used as a highlighter for dark skinned women or worn on its own. It is a stunning cult classic and I had to get my hands on it after it got the thumbs up from celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine.
