bareMinerals Invisible Glow Highlight Powder

My daytime makeup look is soft and natural because well, I’m a teacher, so it kinda has to be. Since I love makeup so much I want to incorporate all of my favorite elements, but I realize it has to be toned down during the day. When I think about highlight, I love to think about a strong bright look along the top of my cheek bones. I think we all know that’s a tad too dramatic for any daytime makeup look, so instead of something bold and shiny, I introduce you to a soft and natural highlighter, the bareMinerals Invisible Glow Powder.

First of all, it’s a baked highlighter, which I love. & it’s bareMinerals, which automatically means great quality, in my opinion.

Benefit High Beam Highlighter

I leave for London in a few hours, but I really wanted to get a post in first!  One thing I know I will be wearing every single day while I’m in London and Rome is Benefit’s High Beam liquid highlighter!
I purchased my first High Beam about a year ago– and I can def say it has become a year round staple in my makeup bag.  I bring it everywhere with me!
High Beam can be used anywhere on your face…I use it on my eyes, on the top of my cheekbones, and a tiny bit above my brow bone and on the bridge of my nose.  It instantly brightens up my complexion without doing too much….so easy and effortless!!
I also sometimes mix a small amount into my tinted moisturizer…but depending on how you apply bronzer, it may lose its effect.  If you just go through the day with tinted moisturizer on, I suggest mixing some High Beam in…you’ll have an awesome glow throughout the day!
