Last week, in my first impressions post, I mentioned my new favourite product, the Laura Mercier highlighter. (If you didn’t read that post, check it out here: Weekend Splurge First Impressions) I am obsessed, it’s whatever. I do, however, have a lot of favourites when it comes to pretty much every type of makeup and highlighters are no exception. I have chosen my top 3 favourite affordable highlights to share with you today and I’m so excited about it! Be forewarned that I am a natural highlight kind of girl, and two of the three highlighters I am discussing do have a more natural finish. Disclaimer: The hand swatches do not do these products justice!
So, without further ado and in no particular order let’s begin!
The first highlighter I am going to talk about is the Hard Candy Glow All the Way Baked Bronzer in the shade “Tiki”. The product name is confusing because this is obviously not a bronzer! It gives you a nice sun kissed glow, it feels super soft and creamy and its so natural looking on the skin. It definitely has a golden undertone and its perfect for the tops of your cheekbones, especially during the spring and summer months. It retails for $9.48 CDN.
Next up is not actually retailed as a highlighter at all. I’ve mentioned this in my recent Current Favourites post (I’m Obsessed) and its the Makeup Geek eyeshadow in the shade “Shimma Shimma”. Out of the three highlighters I am talking about today this is by far the most intense highlight shade there is. This is going to give you that strobe look that everyone seems to be looking for lately. It is perfect for the tops of your cheek bones, and incredibly beautiful in the inner corner of your eyes! I love that this is an eye shadow because it is super versatile and extremely beautiful. It retails for $6.00 CDN, which is extremely affordable for an eyeshadow, but if you are using it strictly as a highlight, there isn’t a whole lot of product.
Last, but certainly not least, and probably my favourite affordable and natural highlighter there is, its the Wet n Wild Coloricon Bronzer in the shade “Reserve your Cabana”. Once again, not a bronzer! This shade is absolutely perfect for a bridal makeup look. It gives such a glow from within and makes the skin look beautifully dewy. The product feels so creamy and light. An added bonus is that its SPF 15, which is great. Not to mention the fact that the size of this product is humungous! You get so much for such a great price. I picked this bad boy up for $4.99 CDN. I’m wearing it in the photo above and I just love the dewy look it gives the tip of my nose and tops of my cheekbones!
So there you have it! Those are my top 3 favourite affordable highlights in my collection. I hope you’ve seen something you might like to try, and if you do, please let me know how you liked them!
