Highlighters and highlighting

I haven't posted make up for a whiiilee

but since its summer we must get that gorgous luminous skin!!

some people dont need make up.. just highlight a few areas add gloss and your good!

Heres my favourite highlighters and where highlighters should be placed

starting with liquid ones- I personally dont like them. no matter what brand I try- Im not a fan ;(

 powders.. I <3

my favourites are...

1- Dior amber diamond
2- The body shop highlighters
3- Bobbi brown shimmer brick (I love the 2 above more)

these can be used anywhere, I sometimes use them as shadow too

Dior blended:

Body shop blended:

For the eyes no matter what I try, I always go back to these:

(YSL, MUFE white, MUFE beige, MAC creme color base)

this YSLswatched on its own on the left which is great for daily/morning and with a white pencil under on the right swatch for night/events

here its blended and compared to the one by MUFE
the YSL one has a little bit of shimmery particles
(MUFE have many colors, theres one that looks amazing on tanned skin)

and I also like the mac pearl cream color base when I want it to look like theres no make up on using your finger, smudge this under ur brow and on your cheek bone

NEVER highlight your whole face

you should be highlighting

under your eyebrow:

you can higlight your cheek:

or the highest part of your cheek bone:

*oh yea and you can also highlight your inner eye rim area

i love summer and i love cream highlights the most :P

my most difficult part is finding the RIGHT type/color/undertone of face foundation to use :(
i always end up with the wrong ones..

Any tips on how to choose a foundation? favorites?
