The best natural highlighters

Blog, The Bella Edit

Ciao!

I love highlighters a lot. However, I don’t wear bold highlighters (*cough* BECCA champagne pop *cough*) often, and especially when I’m running late or on doing my makeup in a rush, I don’t have time to blend out a super shocking highlight.

I also wear mostly natural makeup, so these are my favorite highlights I wear on a daily basis for a glowing face. None of these have glitter in them either, which is great!

Quick note: all of these are natural highlights, so they tend to look fairly similar on the face. I would recommend looking through this list and picking one (some of these are palettes if you really want more options) that suits you.

Enjoy!

RMS Living luminizer review

Makeup Reviews, Reviews

This has a HUGE hype surrounding it.

For a reason.

I mentioned in one of my recent hauls hereΒ that I grabbed this first because it was the thing I’d heard of the most from RMS. Actually, as of the time of this post there is a quad exclusive to RMS (click here) with four different versions of the luminizer in it and it retails for $48. I’ve been eying it since I saw it teased on Instagram, but I’m on a no buy right now (and trying to declutter too).

So at $38, this clocks in as the most expensive highlighter in my collection, tied with BECCA Champagne popΒ (and it’s worth noting that Champagne Pop comes with nearly twice the amount of product). So is it worth it?

Smashbox Color Corrector review

Makeup Reviews, Reviews

I bought this about nine months ago, when I got my Beautyblender (review here) and the Smashbox Contour Sticks (review soon). Β I’d seen some review of this somewhere (probably on allure which was my only beauty intake at the time) which was positive, so I saw it in store and decided to get it in the shade get less red (green).

At the time I…

A) didn’t have a lot of spots to cover

B) was using a more high coverage foundation than I use now

C) loved it.

All three of those things have changed.

I now use the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation (shade 1 Fair), have more red spots on my face to cover, and strongly dislike this color corrector.

It’s not as bad as the Essence one (swatch and short review here) but I think it’s unusable for other reasons.
