I should just own up to problems, I’m Amy and I’m a highlighting product addict. How many is too many?! It would appear that I have no self control when it comes to glowing skin :-) I have tried mountains of them and here are my favourites of the powdered variety. I’ll record another on liquid and cream options and application tips since I use them in a different way.
Soap & Glory All Out Luminiser – a warm peach glow. It’s natural and really pretty. Love it!This one is the cheapest of the bunch at €14 / £11. I bought mine in Boots. Link
MAC MSF Perfect Topping – a subtle pink toned sheen. There’s no glitter in sight and the powder is finely milled. It’s very natural and subtle. It has been discontinued but I included it as it’s not very unique and is similar to a lot of cheaper pinky highlighters on the market.
The Balm Mary Lou Manizer – a champagne highlight. It works really well in conjunction with a matte bronzer as a contour. It’s warm toned and is the most intensely pigmented of the five. It’s important to add a little at a time of you’ll look like you have a stairway to heaven on your cheekbone!
Urban Decay Flushed – I absolutely love this bronzer, blush, highlighter trio. This is one of my top products of 2013. The highlighter shade is a rosy, warm pink. You can swirl all the shades together if you like (€26) Link
Too Faced Pink Leopard Highlighting Bronzer – a warm bronzy highlighter. It’s light in tone so works on fair skin without looking dirty. I have hit pan and I will definitely re-purhcase.
If you are looking for another affordable option I recommend Prestige Sun Baked Mineral Bronzer in Pure Shimmer. It may be called a bronzer but its a highlighter. Mine is finished up which is the only reason I didn’t include it. A little goes a really long way so tread carefully.
I recorded today using the new Canon Legria Mini which is designed for vloggers and youtube video makers. Its really quick and handy to use. It was sent to me to see if I liked recording with it, so far I likes. Obviously not being compensated, just me and my own opinions as per usual :)
I hope you enjoyed the video! I’ll be uploading another one tomorrow :)
This is a bit of a weird topic for a beauty video but it has been on my mind lately. I assume there are others out there who have pondered on bust creams and a few who have dabbled with lotions and potions.
The product I have been using is Palmer’s Bust Cream. It seems to work well. It makes my skin plump and fresh looking. I do wonder if it has any long term effects though.
I received an email from a lovely YouTube subscriber who wanted to know where the rest of my Holy Grail Product Series was. Good question. I got a little side-tracked :) I promised to finish the series. Here is product number three, few more to go after this one. I have listed Holy Grail Product #1 and #2 below also. Hope you enjoy!
