The Only Highlighter Combo You Need: Fall Highlighters

By Trecee Hutchinson - 8:44:00 PM

So... the weather has finally dropped below 90 here in New Orleans and I am soooo excited for Fall. When it gets cooler, I get excited because I can finally pull out more of my Cream products and don't have to worry about them melting off my face.

A few weeks ago, I did a review of the NYX Bright Idea Illuminating sticks (post) and lately I have been pairing the shade "Pinkie Dust" with two of my favorite powder highlighter and I just had to share these beautiful combinations with you.


Layering a powder highlighter over a cream can do so many things for your highlighter game:

- It intensifies the color payoff

- Increases the longevity of your glow

- Can add extra dimension and intensity to your highlighted areas

- Is still buildable, so can be as intense or subtle as you like (We all don't like to see our highlighter from a mile away)

Let's take a look at some of my favorite Highlighters alone and on top of  the Nyx Cream Highlighter:

Bobbi Brown Bronze Glow + Pinkie Dust

If you haven't tried out the Bobbi Brown Highlighter ($46) in Bronze Glow you are really missing out! It is the perfect light bronze color and the best part about it is that it does not show up glittery on the skin at all. The formula is feels almost like a powder to gel and really can give a wet look to the skin on its own if built up to full capacity. This highlighter is also perfect for those of us who like highlighter, but don't want to have that wet look because it can be worn in a subtle way. It gives a glow from within glow that is only intensified when used with Pinkie Dust. This combo does not bring attention to texture in the skin which is super important when wearing highlighter.


Lorac Cosmetics  Highlighter in "Daylight" + Pinkie Dust

The Lorac ($22) are not really that talked about in the beauty community, but they are absolutely gorgeous! My favorite thing about these is that they a really smooth and do not show skin texture like other highlighters (ABH) tend to do. These are effortless highlighters in my opinion. Daylight is a soft Gold and is glowy on its own, but when layered on top of a Pixie Dust jumps to next level glowy.

Tips for Application

 The best thing about this highlighting technique is the simplicity of it. I apply the stick highlighter to my face in the areas I like to highlight (directly from the tube) and blend it out with small stippling brush. I then go right over that area with my highlighting fan brush and the powder highlighter making sure to blend out and harsh lines and That's it!
