• May 4, 2016

Because we all love a good highlight. Note, some of these don’t seem to be for everyday wear, but they’re absolutely gorgeous and if you’re bold, go for it! I personally don’t mind looking like a fairy goddess in the middle of the day.
Artist Couture “Sugar Daddy” Diamond Glow Powder packs a major glow and a little goes a long way. Fair warning, if you visit the Artist Couture site, you may be tempted to buy all of them.

NYX Cosmetics Illuminator in Chaotic is especially great because you can most likely find it locally and it’s under $10. I have this highlighter in Narcissistic and absolutely love it.

Benefit Cosmetics Watt Up! is especially great if you like cream highlighters. Benefit was the first highlighter brand I ever bought looooong ago, and I really like them because they’re very easy to blend.

The young lady in one of the pics seems to have a growth in her neck. It could be goiter. She should really have ti checked out.
