Blush&Highlighters

I have never really been a blush girl and that could be due to the fact I’ve never had a blush I fell in love with, until now.

When I first saw the Zoeva Pink Spectrum blush palette I was hesitant as there is one colour of the four I was a bit apprehensive about. The colours are beautiful, especially PK020: it’s a warm pink and very flattering to my paler skin. The other colours are just as fabulous: PK010 has a light shimmer to it; and PK030 is a purple/pink tone blush. The last blush is PK040 and this is the one I’m a tad afraid of –  it’s a hot pink bold blush, its not to say I won’t try it sometime, but right now I just don’t have the balls!

Jouer Powder Highlighter in citrine is gorgeous! The shine is unbelievable and a little bit goes a long way – which is always a bonus. I like the fact you can build up this highlighter, so the Gods can see you!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit Sugar, beautiful packaging – anything with shine to it is always a plus for me, but the highlighters themselves are truly stunning! Marshmallow being a favourite and Butterscotch being a close second, the other two: Starburst and Gumdrop I have yet to try. All the colours are gorgeous and the range is a big bonus but I don’t feel this glow kit has as much shine as the Jouer Powder Highlight. But the kit does push your makeup one step further – the shades glide on, when they catch the light they really do look flawless. And having four shades is always great. If I had to pick though, I would choose Jouer Powder Highlighter purely because it doesn’t take a lot to get that shine on.

Contouring will be the death of me: I have yet to master the fabulous art, but I know the basics. I have ‘Shade and Light’ Face Contour Palette and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Series Contour Cream Kit Light. I have tried both individually and both together, but because of my skin I can’t have too much on without it look atrocious. Also, a tip: don’t over-do it – what looks good for a glam selfie doesn’t necessarily look great as a day look.

I mostly use Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Series Contour Cream Kit Light favouring four of the six colours. As with most things in life, sometimes it seems to glide on and blends well  but other times it looks like the result of a mud fight – I’ve no idea why this happens, I use the same foundation, the same brushes, but I struggle getting a consistent good result – and I know it’s user error, not the product! But as they say, practice makes perfect.

The ‘Shade and Light’ Face Contour Palette I use 2 out of 6 and sometimes just the one. However, this product I do struggle with – I love Kat Von D and I want to like her products but I am not happy with this set: The colours aren’t great and the three paler colours look so caked on, even when I apply very sparingly, there is something about this product that just doesn’t suit me.
