Highlight This!

A favorite product of mine right now is highlighter. With the winter months upon us, skin can tend to get sallow and dead looking without proper sun. They bring a little much needed glam to your eyes and cheeks. Highlighters add a bit of shine and life to your features, without any fake-looking tan color. A little swipe on top of your cheekbone or under your eyebrow can make your features POP! It also photographs really well. So rock those wintry pale complexions, with one of my picks for highlighters this season:

Bare Escentual's i.d. bareMinerals All-Over Face Color in True is a glimmering loose powder that can be used all over the face to create a subtle coraly-pink glow.

Benefit's High Beam is a classic liquid highlighter. It creates a soft, subtle glow wherever you brush it on and blend it in. You can even mix it with your liquid foundation to create an all over subtle glow.

For a more sparkly, holiday look, try Givency's Prisme Solitaire All-Over Diamond-Effect Powder. This limited edition compact can be used on the eyes, cheeks, lips and even your shoulders and neckline, to create a subtle yet stunning glow. It comes in a leather ring box with a brush, as part of Givency's Holiday 2007 collection.

MAC has some beautiful options for highlighters, one being their Iridescent Pressed Powder in Belightful. This finely milled powder contains Mica and other pigments to give you a soft, subtle glow. It can be worn alone or with foundation.

Shine Lovely!
