Fav Highlighter // NYX Liquid Illuminator 

Happy Monday!!! Here in Michigan we are having an absolute gorgeous morning. Sun is shining and weather is warm! Which for us is rare now of days! Sunshine automatically puts me in a cheery mood and gives me fantastic motivation in the morning to get ready!

While I was starting to do my makeup and went to grab my highlighter, I realized how much I really love this product. I’ve gone through a couple of highlighters in my time, and nothing compares to this one. So today I am going to share with you about the NYX Liquid Illuminator in the shade “Sunbeam”.

  

Product: This product comes in two difference shades. The one that I am holding is called Sunbeam and it’s a beautiful pinky/champagne/white combination and the other color they have is called Gleam which is a bronzed highlighter. I’ve had this for about 2 months now and originally bought it from Ulta for around $7.50. Not expensive at all compared to high end products. I went with Sunbeam for a more natural sunlit luminous glow on my cheeks. 

How I apply:  I place 4 or 5 small dots on my cheek bone surrounding my eye up until above my brow usually. Then I take my middle finger and lightly dab or stipple into my skin on the area I want highlighted. Towards the end if any areas need more blending I will lightly rub it into the skin with a light circular motion. I’ve also heard that you can use this underneath your foundation as a base to create a luminous, dewy look. 

  

  

  

Final result: This picture below is what it looks like on. The camera did not show it’s full effect but you can still see the luminous glow on my cheekbones! Perfect for spring & summer! (Excuse the eye brows, did not do that step until after taking these pictures) 

  

Thank you guys for taking the time to read my post! Hope you enjoyed this product review! Like I said earlier in the way I apply my highlighter, if you would like to see the look of using this highlighter as a foundation base to create a dewy luminous look, let me know & I’ll do a post/video about that look!
