Current FAVORITES: Highlighters!

There is nothing I love more than a tanned, bronzed and dewy face. Which is the total opposite of what I have right now! In my efforts to look somewhat alive and glowing during this winter, I dove into my collection of shimmery satin and glittery cosmetic highlighters. It's amazing what a highlighted cheek bone (among other areas) can do for ones face =) My favorites of this winter that will no doubt take me into spring and summer are:
MAC loose powder in Silver Dusk. This highlighter is definitely for a person who isn't aftraid of some serious sparkle. Used with a light hand Silver Dusk is the perfect accent to a cool-colored makeup look. I get compliments almost every time I wear this out!
Laura Mercier Candlelight. I've had this in my makeup collection for a while but have just recently come to appreciate it's beauty. Candlelight goes amazingly well with looks comprised of warmer shades. I find the majority of highlighters are on the cooler side (even bronze shades are usually mixed with a cooler toned champagne, etc) this however, is the perfect subtle shade to wear with any number of warm-colored looks.
Dior Amber Diamond. Really there isn't much I need to say about this product. It is a cult favorite, and deservedly so. I only regret I waited so long to get it! Amber Diamond is well worth the cost, and as you don't need much product it will last forever.
The last product is MAC MSF in Triple Fusion. This is a great pink shimmery highlight. (This picture really isn't doing it any justice. It goes from a gold color to a bronze to a pink.) This was the first MSF I ever bought! The pink is a great way to mix things up a bit and can be as loud or as subtle as you want it to be.
(Let me be the first to say that I am absolutely TERRIBLE at doing swatches & taking photos!)
