Liquid Highlighters

I love mixing them in with base products, like primer, moisturizer, or foundation, for a more luminous finish to my base. I don’t usually wear them alone, even though they often work that way, as they can be too subtle for my taste. If they pack more punch on top of products, then I’ll definitely wear them alone, too! I do prefer the kind that dry down for the most part and don’t remain tacky or movable throughout the day.

Matte Eyeshadow

I love matte eyeshadows for the crease, above the crease, and brow bone, though I don’t tend to wear it on the lid (I like shimmer there). I wish matte eyesahdows were–on the whole–easier to blend out and to use. I feel like it’s a lot harder to get a great matte eyeshadow than it is a frosty/shimmery one.

Glitter Eyeshadow

I love the concept but am not so keen on the removal nor the wear (without a good adhesive primer/base!). The removal, though, keeps me from wearing it that often by choice.

Cream Highlighters

I don’t like when cream products stay tacky on the skin, so as long as it is a cream-based product that dries down for the most part, I’d totally use them. I like that they can add subtle luminosity and more of a glow than a shimmer.

Shimmer Eyeshadow

I love shimmer eyeshadow over all other finishes (but there is a place for all!) as they’re just easier to blend and apply! The only kind I don’t like are the type that are drier or dustier, so the shimmer can emphasize the texture of my lids.

Powder Highlighters

I’m a huge fan! There’s little not to love except for the ones that have less base color and lots of glitter/sparkle that doesn’t bind with the base powder. I don’t mind sparkly highlighters, but they still have to go on smoothly and not have a ton of travel!
