Are you a highlighter fiend? I am not. I have a few, but I find most of them too harsh, metallic and fake looking to use during the day. I’m not sure when it became ok to walk around with a huge stripe of obvious highlighter on cheekbones. You know how everyone cringes at the huge stripes of bold blush we wore in the 80s? Yeah, that’s gonna be the same cringe when people look back at the highlighter high beam streak phase going on right now. 😛
Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duos are a more gentle, natural looking highlighter-although you can build them up to look more…obvious…if that’s what you like.
Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duos
There are two shades of Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duos($38)-Rosy Glow and Warm Glow.
Remember Too Faced’s original Candlelight powder? Well these two highlighters are the newest incarnation of that powder and I think they’re really nice! Apparently they have photolite technology to diffuse harsh light and give your skin that glow that candlelight gives.
Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo in Rosy Glow is supposed to brighten and illuminate, while Warm Glow will warm up the complexion. I like using the lighter shades on top of my cheekbones, and then the pink or the peach shade a bit over my blush-not too much otherwise WOWZA you’ll be shiny like C3PO! See that peachy swatch? That’s a heavier swatch I did on purpose so you could see the intensity you can get out of these powders. But just a touch of the peach or rose on the apples of the cheeks will liven up your blush and complexion and make you look fresher and more youthful. And like I said, a LIGHT TOUCH. No highlighter high beam striping allowed, especially if you are over the age of 40. Please.
Do you wear highlighter every day? I didn’t until more recently.
