My daily highlighting products


My name’s Amy and I’m addicted to highlighting. There, I said it.

Whilst I love trying out new highlighting products and have a load on rotation, there are two which I use daily without fail to create my basic highlight.


I start with a MAC concealer a few shades lighter than my skintone and apply across my cheek bones, on my forehead, down my nose, on my philtrum (had to Google that – otherwise known as “that bit above my lip but under my nose”) and my chin. I dab it on using a MAC duo fibre 130 brush then blend with a sponge which has been lightly sprayed with MAC Studio Fix.

I then apply MAC Soft & Gentle highlighting powder over my cheek bones, nose and philtrum using my MAC 129 powder brush. I have so much love for Soft & Gentle, it has a really nice shimmer and really sets off a highlight perfectly.

I don’t know where I would be without these products and my faithful brushes.

I’m curious to hear what highlighting products everyone else would rate as being their most used?

    I’m currently using the high beam highlighter from Benefit, but I love the sound of these, definitely going to be added to my wish list! x

      I still have a lot of love for High Beam but tend to wear it under my foundation to build glow now rather than as my on top highlighter. Awesome! 🙂 x

    These Mac products look very pretty for highlighting. I am in the process of creating a highlighting system. Thanks for the tip. 🙂

      Awesome! I’m constantly switching mine up but these two are staples.
