What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC? - Page 4

post #91 of 147

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

If I am looking for something subtle, I'll use Vanilla pigment (very lightly). However, more often than not, I'm looking for something very glowy so after blush (usually a mineralize blush) and contour (Blunt) I'll use Faces Metaliglow. It's basically like the Lustredrops available from the Style Warriors collection.

I've also used Woodwinked/Bronze e/s for a lovely "bronzey" glow.

NARS' Albatross sounds intriguing now!

I am a 173 in mufe. I don't know what that is in mac, maybe nc 50. I love sertao by nars. It's a blush but I use it as a higlighter. It's a gorgeous, soft gold. I use it along with any blush I use. Lovely.

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

If you can get your hands on Other Worldy blush...that makes a great highlight. I see it in the CCO's on a regular basis.
It's wonderful IMO.

And Springsheen..I get compliments on this everytime I wear it. It's a must have to me.

Good luck.

1. Mac Other Worldly Blush (LE) It's such a beautiful blush and I love the fact that it has no glitter specks either. I wished it was permanent.
2. Any Mac MSFs
3. Mac MSF Duo - Highlight Side

Now after reading this thread...I want to try out those BB Shimmerbricks. YAY!
I love your videos!

I got Spaced Out Sheertone Shimmer Blush from my local CCO. I sure missed this phenomenon when it was in the Neo Sci Fi Collection! I put it over Raizin! It's a beautiful shimmer that goes from warm cantaloupe to cotton candy pink! Like a duo chrome or something! GET, GET, GET!

NC50 for reference!

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

I'm an NW45 girl in MAC, and I absolutely love Margin. Trace Gold is pretty but is kind of sparkly and kind of looks white, I actually prefer Trace Gold on more fairer skin ladies (not saying it doesn't look nice on WOC!) But Margin on the other hand has a peachier tone to it, but not too peachy, I wear it with all my blushes and it doesn't look like you're trying too hard you know what I mean, check it out!

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

I wish I had bought Nars Albatross years ago. I love it.
Also the Bobbi Brown Rose and Apricot Shimmer Bricks. I have four shimmer bricks (also have the pink and beige ones) and will not allow myself to buy any more!

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

Hey ladies!

I'm torn between getting Trace Gold blush or Soft and Gentle MSF as a cheekbone highlight. Which one would be better for an NC35?

Thanks in advance!

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

i think cheeky bronze is gorgeous, it is almost a bronzer but if you are around nc 50 i think it will be a nice highlighter

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

oh my god, i was totally shocked by this, but the Candid Coral Blush from E.L.F. cosmetics from their studio line is a great highlight for darker toned folks. On lighter-skinned people it works great as just a blush, however, on darker tones it's a GORGEOUS highlight!!

the dugstore brand 'glow up' by barbara daly is amazing (nc44)

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

I would recommend using Nars Orgasm or dabbing on Benefit Moonbeam for a nice natural glow.
post #114 of 147

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

I would recommend Nars Orgasm with a light hand and also MAC Comfort MSF. Also, Springshine from the Forecast collection is gorgeous as a highlight. I am MAC NC50 in the center and cheeks and NW45 in the outer perimeter (weird, I know).

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

Bargain Bucket Bella here adores Revlon Skinlights (Shimmering) Loose Powders in Natural Lights and Warm Lights. I also have Golden Lights and Bronze Lights but am only ever able to pull them off in summer after dark. I think they would work beautifully on warm / golden toned dark WOC. I am just too neutral / cool for them, so they tend to look more artificial.

I am actually very antisheen / shimmer but these powders are wonderful for adding that enchanting 'glow' without looking greasy or glittery. I tend to apply with a very light hand and a soft fan brush.

Natural Lights is very similar to MAC FairyLite pigment and gives a wonderful vintage / classic subtle glow whereever I use it. I also love this as a brow highlight. I use it all year round but it is my go to winter highlight.

Warm Lights is like a sheer MAC Sweet As Cocoa. Less yellow golden so perfect for my neutral tones. It highlights beautifully without adding too much warmth and compliments most of my matte neutral blushes perfectly. I intend to be rocking this 24-7 this summer.

These are great cause they are so fine you can use them all over your face and body, adding them to foundation or body lotions for a shexy sheen. You get a HUGE 20g tub for $10 which used as highlight everyday, will last you ages! When I first received Warm Lights (ebay buy) I decanted a little (approx 5g) into a wee 25ml powder sample jar and apply from that refilling as needed. I have still to make a dent in that first sample and I have been using it regularly for nearly a year now! A little goes an extremely long way.

I also like MAC Format and Flirt & Tease for blushes with built in highlight / glow.

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

My fave highlighters are NARS Albatross and MAC Brunette MSF for everyday glow. If I'm wearing a pink blush, I use Petticoat MSF for a rosy glow.
