Looking to add a highlighter to your beauty arsenal? Trying to achieve a luminous and healthy glow? The #GLOWGASMPALETTE from SwiitchBeauty (R450) might be just what you’ve been searching for. Your cheekbones will shine brighter than a diamond. The palette houses six extra large pans of finely-milled, buttery smooth highlighters to suit any skin tone.
A quality highlighter can liven up your complexion, bring instant luminosity to your skin and accentuate your best features. Highlighters are your secret weapon for a youthful, healthy glow. The key to using highlighter is knowing how and where to use it. When using a powder-based highlighter (like five of these six SwiitchBeauty highlighters), apply with either a fan brush, tapered brush or even with a beauty blender.
Under the brow bone: Apply highlighter just under your brow bone to give the illusion of larger eyes. A simple wide-eyed look can instantly add a fresh appearance to your everyday makeup routine.
Bridge of the nose: If you’re contouring your nose then applying highlighter along the bridge of your nose gives it the illusion of being slimmer.
Inner corner of the eye: Working on only four hours of sleep? Add a smidgen of highlighter to the inner corner of your eyes to brighten up your eyes to give you that fresh, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed appearance.
Cupid’s Bow: If you’re like me and you weren’t blessed with full lips you can help plump up your pout with the tiniest amount of highlighter applied to the top of the V of your cupid’s bow. This helps to create the illusion of fuller lips.
Diagonal along the cheekbone: A few swipes of well-placed highlighter can instantly sculpt cheekbones. Apply highlighter in a diagonal line from just beneath the centre of your eye socket up towards your hairline, and blend.
The SwiitchBeauty highlighters (R450) are highly pigmented, so if you’re after a more subtle sheen then use sparingly. However, if you want your highlighter to be seen from outer space then have at it. They apply smoothly and show up beautifully after just one swipe of the brush.
Highlighter #4 and #5 will work really well on pale-skinned ladies like myself. The pearly pigment will add just enough opalescence to wake up your face.
Highlighter #2, #3 and #6 with their golden tones will work perfectly on those with medium-to-olive skin tones.
Highlighter #1 and #6 will look stunning on dark skin tones. I also enjoy using the stunning rose-gold #1 as an eyeshadow.
