You’re probably not surprised to see me talking about highlighter. It’s everywhere at the moment and has been on the beauty roster for last few years. I must admit, I am rather impartial to a lil’ glow on a daily basis. My favourite highlighter of all time being the iconic Mineralise Skin Finish in ‘Soft ‘n’ Gentle’ from MAC.
It’s no secret that a candlelit glow is what we’re all aiming to achieve and good highlighters don’t have to break the bank. Today I am talking about two highlighting/brightening products from MUA that I have really enjoyed using over the last couple of weeks.
I’ve dabbled with under eye ‘brighteners’ and ‘correctors’ for a while and have never quite noticed a difference, or simply couldn’t be bothered with such a step in my routine. When I spotted the MUA Undress Your Skin Under Eye Concealer I decided to give it a whirl, at £3 figuring it was worth the punt.
And the general feeling is that I really like it. I chose the shade ‘Luminous’ a pale-yellowy salmon shade. It aims to banish dark circles and fatigue through a lightweight formula that is reasonably thick in consistency. Containing light-diffusing particles the formula is intended to awaken dull skin. I apply it over foundation, perhaps the Illamasqua Skin Base and the pigmentation around my eye sockets, (of which I have tone’s of blue and yellow) simply disappear. There are two other shades in the range: ‘Radiance’ and ‘brilliance’ which have different undertones.
