I'M LOVING: THE SEVENTEEN SKIN WOW HIGHLIGHTER



Seeing as strobing or highlighting is a very popular beauty trend at the moment, I bought myself a new highlighter (as if I don't own 4 already...) and I have been using it almost everyday since.The Seventeen Skin Wow Highlighter is a gorgeous champagne highlighter with peach undertones. Strobing involves applying highlighter to the high points of your face which hit the light and this technique effectively defines your face without you having to contour.

The Seventeen Skin Wow Highlighter can be used in three ways, as a primer, mixed with foundation or as a highlighter. My favourite way is to use it as a highlighter.The packaging is very sleek and the pump allows you to easily dispense product without it becoming messy. 

The formula has a liquid/cream consistency with no glitter particles, just subtle shimmer which allow you to look natural and healthy.

FOR PRIMING: For a daytime appropriate glow from within apply one pump to your fingers and massage into the skin on your face. Then apply your normal base.

WHEN MIXING WITH YOUR FOUNDATION: Apply some foundation onto the back of your hand and add a pump of the Seventeen Skin Wow. Mix together either using your fingers or a brush and apply to your face. I would recommend mixing it with a matte or semi radiant foundation for a base that is appropriate all year round. 

FOR HIGHLIGHTING: Apply half a pump onto the back of your hand and using your finger dab a small amount onto your cheekbones and blend initially using your fingers and then a brush to avoid any harsh edges. The highlighter also looks great in the inner corners of your eyes (to make them pop), on the bridge of the nose, temples, brow bone and cupids bow. 

I love how healthy it makes you look and it is visible when you walk past a mirror (particularly on the tops of your cheekbones) and in photos. 

Have you tried the Seventeen Skin Wow Highlighter?
