Everday Highlight | The Makeup Mixup

An everyday highlight look using the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Opal.

Let’s talk about a new obsession – looking glowing and radiant with highlight! And when I saw that this week’s Makeup Mixup topic was all about highlight, I knew this was the post for me.

Not to mention it gives me the perfect excuse to use my new Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector I picked up for my birthday!

This liquid highlight is SO PRETTY! I could swipe it all over my face, but even a little dab right on the cheekbones is perfect for everyday looks. Let’s face it. It’s a great product for someone that’s a little bit of a dunce when it comes to makeup. Even if you slap it on the wrong spots, you just come across looking pretty and radiant.

The Becca highlight is a little pricey. BUT there are some new drugstore products that look great too! I really want to try the new Lumi illuminator products from L’Oreal. I am a huge fan of the Lumi BB Cream, but now there is a powder and liquid highlight to the line. Sign me up!

Are you a highlight fan? Favorite products? You just can’t go wrong with a glowing highlight for summer!

    Your highlight looks so great. I think I have some Becca products in my future–they seem all the rage right now. So pretty.
    I’m so glad you decided to link up with us! 😀 YAY! That lip color is genius on you, btw.

    This is such a beautiful look! I love how it has a dewy look to it. It’s perfect for summer as well as the transition to fall! Also- you have such stunning eyes!! Great take on the prompt! I love it too because I’m not big on wearing makeup so this is totally a look I would rock. Love it!

      Dewy! That was a word I was trying to think of. Yes – if you apply just a dab it’s just a glow. Do a little more and it transforms to being glowy! Both amazing, but different. Such a pretty product! I feel like it’s hard to mess up the highlight. Bronzer, blush, contouring – all can be messed up. But I can handle a highlight! 🙂

    Great look! You totally nailed the “glow”!! I had my eyes on Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector and just bought the Pressed Powder version of Moonstone yesterday!! It’s SO BEAUTIFUL, no!!?

    Much Love!!

    That looks beautiful on you! I usually pop a little bit of champagne shadow on top of my blush as a highlighter – but that is an awesome product! Thanks for sharing!

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      I usually do that too. But this product was just so pretty I couldn’t resist! But the L’Oreal Lumi line looks like they just came out with something similar, and would love to try that next!

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      Since we’re both lovers of the Lumi BB cream, their liquid highlighter is bound to be delightful too 🙂

      Thank you! And yes, when it comes to face stuff beyond the basics, I’m hopeless. But I could handle this! A little went a long way, too.
