Favorite Highlighters


Beauty blogger confession: I didn't own a single highlighter until I started reading beauty blogs/blogging! Shock horror! After seeing all the beautiful highlighter photos and swatches all over the blogosphere, I knew I had to get my hands on some. Needless to say I, since then, went from one extreme to another and converted into a highlighter addict.

Itiraf ediyorum, guzellik bloglarini okumaya baslayana ve bu blogu acana dek tek bir tane aydinlaticim dahi yoktu. Takip ettigim bloglarda baktim bir aydinlaticidir gidiyor, bende hemen birkac tane edineyim dedim. O zamandan beri adeta bir aydinlatici bagimlisina donustum.


Dior Amber Diamond

Who is surprised? Amber Diamond to me is the queen of all highlighters. It's a very versatile champagne-gold, shimmery highlighter that looks good with pretty much any kind of look. It leaves a nice, subtle light gold sheen on skin. Depending on the look, I also sweep it down the bridge of my nose, on brow bone and upper lip too.

Sasiran? Bana gore aydinlaticilarin kralicesi olan Amber Diamond ne tur makyaj yapilirsa yapilsin kesinlikle makyaj butunlestiren ve tamamlayan olmazsa olmaz urunlerimden biri. Ben butun renkleri karistirarak elmacik kemiklerimin ustune uyguluyorum. Ayrica makyaja gore icin burun kemiginin ve dudak ustune ayni zamanda kasin hemen altinada uyguladigimda oluyor.

theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer

Depending on your skin tone, this may either be a shimmery gold bronzer, a highlighter or both. I personally am not a fan of shimmery bronzers because I use them to contour my face and wouldn't want shimmer on those areas. For me Betty-Lou Manizer makes a perfect gold highlight. I especially love using it on tanned cheek bones during summer. 

Cilt tonunuza gore Betty-Lou Manizer ya piriltili bir bronzer, aydinlatici ya da her ikiside olabilir. Ben piriltili bronzerlardan pek haz etmedigim icin (cunku ben bronzeri yuzumu kontor yapmakta kullaniyorum ve yuzumun her yerinde isilti olmasini sevmiyorum) Betty-Lou'yu aydinlatici olarak ozellikle yaz aylarinda yanik tene cok yakistiriyorum.

Guerlain Meteorites Perles - Teint Beige

In my swatches below Teint Beige looks like I swatched powdered sugar on my hand but that's only because these little shimmery balls contain the tiniest pieces of glitter which my camera just doesn't pick up. (That justifies my need of a new camera!) On my face, however, it's a very subtle sheen that can easily be worn during the day time. I especially love to pair the Meteorites with a matte blush to jazz it up a little!

Asagidaki swatchimda Teint Beige'in sanki pudra sekeri swatchlamisim gibi gorundugunun farkindayim ama bunun nedeni bu minik piriltili toplarin iclerindeki ufacik piriltilarin kameramda bir turlu gorunmemesi. (Bu da yeni bir kamera ihtiyacim dogruluyor sanirim!) Yuzumde cok, cok hafif bir pirilti birakan Meteorites mat alliklarla cok guzel kombinler yaratiyor.


MAC White Dusk

If you want a J-lo type of glow, then White Dusk is your best friend. It's the epitome of J-lo glow. I wouldn't be surprised to find out this is what her makeup artists use on her. Like the name suggests, it's is silver thus creating more of a cool look. It also works beautifully as under the brow highlighter.

Eger J-lo vari bir isilti istiyorsaniz ve bunu yaratacak aydinlaticiyi hala bulamadiysaniz White Dusk'i denemeden bu arayistan vazgecmeyin derim. Ilk bakista rengi biraz fazla bagiran beyazimsi gumus, hatta biraz da korkunc. Yuzde elmacik kemiklerine cool bir gorunum katmak icin ideal. Ayrica kas alti ve goz pinarini aydinlatmada birebir.

MAC Redhead

Redhead is a shimmery salmon that does a great job adding warmth to my face. It doesn't show up as intense as it looks in my swatches below but leaves a light coral sheen.

Piriltili somon renginde olan Redhead yuzume sicaklik katmakta oldukca basarili. Yuzumde swatchlarimdaki kadar yogun oldugunu soyleyemem. Benim tenimde daha cok acik mercan renginde bir parlaklik birakiyor.

MAC Crew

Crew is a light pinky coral that has very light shimmer, it almost looks matte. It translates on my skin as a very light baby pink. I also do use it as a blush sometimes.

Crew neredeyse mat olan ve tek acik pembe aydinlaticim. O yuzden yeri ayri benim icin ;) Cok acik bir tonda olmasina ragmen yuzumde allik olarak kullanabilecek kadar gorunuyor o yuzden bazen allik olarakta kullandigim oluyor.

  2. I also own and love amber diamond. I think by now, I have accumulated far too many highlighters and usually forget/am too lazy to wear them on an everyday basis. It's time to start incorporating them again, especially now when my skin's starting to look duller. <3

  4. I want to pick up that mac highlighter in Redhead! It looks amazing. I am just like you when you say that you were never into highlighters before you read blogs. Just like me, before I started you tube, and blogging I never thought of using a highlighter! Great post!!

  7. Tricia, no they are totally different. Highlighter is used to define bone structure and give the face a healthy glow. It's usually applied on top of cheek bones, down the bridge of nose and right under the eyebrows. Hope this helps :)
