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.

The MUA ‘Undress your skin’ highlighter in ‘Iridescent Gold is a beautiful pale gold highlight that you can buy from Superdrug priced ยฃ3 for 7.5g of product. This has been my highlight of choice every day now as the powder makes your skin look super radiant. Immediately lifting the complexion, I apply the powder with a domed fluffy brush to the tops of my cheekbones. Never under my brow as this can look a little bizarre for a day in the office. There are also other shades in the range: ‘Pearlescent Sheen’ and ‘Peach Diamond’ for varied tones that suit different skin tones.

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 ยฃ3 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.
