A Highlighter To Suit Everyone!

I don't think there are many people who don't have a highlighter in their makeup bag, I cant do my makeup routine without this to finish it off. Highlighters do come in different shades, even though they are there to fit the same purpose, different shades and tones suit different skin tones. There are odd ones however which are pretty universal and this is one of my favourites. 
This is the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle. It is a beautiful highlighter, you can see the marble like finish to it with all the different colours which transfer so beautiful onto the skin. The tiniest amount goes a very long way and it gives such a beautiful glow. It doesn't look glittery its more of a sheen to enhance the look of glowing skin. Its a favourite highlighter of mine which I use all the time. It is also a staple in my freelance kit for the main reason that its a product that's suits anyone. Its the perfect in-between shade of cool and warm tones. Its suitable for paler skin tones, it blends really well with cooler toned products and looks really natural on the skin. It is also suitable for the darker skin tones due the slight champagne tone to it meaning it works really well with warmer toned products also.

I really love this product it looks beautiful on the skin and its so versatile, which is key as a makeup artist. Not only is it versatile to skin tones, but also on ways to use it and where to apply it. You can use this anywhere on the face you want to pop out and you can use it really lightly for a subtle glow or build it up for more dramatic looks. My favourite places to use it are the cheek bones, brow bone and the inner corners of the eyes to make them pop. What is your favourite highlighter?
