Must Have: Highlight

November 25, 2016

It's me I'm back again. So, I have been MIA recently in the world of blogging. A lot has happened over the past few months but, I am now in a position where I can dedicate some spare time to writing down my thoughts, rants and reviews. I start a new job next week which entails moving to a completely different country and yes, it's going to be a struggle but I will have a lot of free time to chill out and do what I enjoy... which is you guessed it, blogging.

Okay, so to ease me back in I have decided to pick out my must have beauty picks and some of them may well be dark horses but, hopefully you will like what you see.

Highlight. A must have beauty essential (in my opinion). Okay so you have 5 minutes to get ready and leave the house? Blend a bit of foundation, sweep some light powder over your brows and then highlight like crazy. Simple but effective.

My absolute go to highlight at the moment is Kiko's long lasting wet and dry eyeshadow in shade 208 (yes, I said eyeshadow). Who says you can't wear eyeshadow on your cheeks? Push the boundaries. The moment I saw this shadow in the shop I knew it was going to become one of my staples. It's a gorgeous deep gold colour with flecks of iridescent glitter. Perfect for late night strolls in the park or even a quick trip to Tesco to grab a pint of milk. Not only does it make a great highlight but it also makes the perfect gold smokey eye look for the holiday season.

Honestly, if you haven't given this a go then please go out and try it. It retails at £8.90 and trust me, a little goes a long way. If you'd like to take a look then just click here.

Let me know what your go to highlights are? I'm always looking to expand my collection.
