Happy Makeup Monday! In lieu of the hot summery weather, I'm sharing my favorite cream highlighters today. I have pretty pale skin and I think all of these highlighters compliment my skin well. Since they are cream they last through the heat a little better. The two highlighters that are more pearl toned are MAC Strobe Cream and L'oreal Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer. Both of these products I will apply onto my face first before applying foundation as a glowy primer - not at the same time of course, I'd use one or the other ;) The MAC Strobe Cream is suuuuper hydrating and a little creamier than the L'oreal Lumi. L'oreal Lumi is a bit more watery in texture. I store them both standing up instead of laying flat in a drawer. Once I had a Lumi that was laying flat and it went all watery - even after I shook it up it wasn't the greatest texture anymore. I also really enjoy NARS Illuminator in Copacabana. It is more pinky pearl toned and is a really stark highlight but when blended in its beautiful! All three of these products can be mixed in with your foundation or you can also dab a little in areas you want to highlight and then blend in. Benefit's Watts Up is another one of my favorites. It is a cream to powder finish - you can pat it directly on the areas you want to highlight. Watts Up is a more champagne golden glow. I love the name of this product, I think it's so clever. Benefit really has the cutest packaging and names for their products! These liquid and cream highlighters will leave you gleaming and ready with that healthy summer glow. 

Thanks for stopping by!
