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?
