Hey Divas...
Okay so im lookin' for the right cheekbone highlight...you know...to give your cheekbones the extra umph!! Any suggestions?

I know y'all are workin' those cheekbones so please let me know what you think would be awesome to give it that punch. I have Raizin, Sweet as Cocoa, Coppertone...and more but I need something in my collection as a highlight for right on top of that cheek...and having trouble finding one!

Tell me your suggestions ladies..y'all are the experts! Thanks!

Im an NC50

I agree with Trace Gold and you should also try Honour, its heavy on the sparkle so you'll need a light hand with it. GOOD LUCK!

I love Warmed MSF, it's LE though. You can probably do Trace gold blush instead. Also, I like using Natual Flare beauty powder for highlight.

ok this is my favorite one, I am NW45 I use MAC peachtwist as a highlight and NARS Mounia as a contour, buff it out with a 187 it looks really good.

I recently got Ambering Rose blush its a really pretty one also.

I think the key to making your highlight stand out is to have a contour color. Sweet As Cocoa should work just fine just get a darker blush to contour your cheeks and it should work.

MAC Trace Gold blush and the Flashtronic mineralized shadows! By Jupiter and Mercurial and even Techtonic are gorgeous highlights. I'm looking forward to trying out Nars Albatross one day soon.

Like most everyone, I LOVE Nars Albatross. Vanilla's a close second only because it's so messy (haven't gone around to pressing yet.) On colder days though, I use Nars Copacabana because the cream stick formula doesn't dry me out as fast or Smashbox Skin Tint in Radiance if I want a more tanned glow.

some highlights i love: melon pigment, honour, golden bronze iridescent loose powder, new msf duo's dark and deep dark. there are also blushes that leave a beautiful glow on the cheek: format, ambering rose, sweet as cocoa, sunbasque, margin. Those are a few you could try. HTH!

NARS Albatross!! I also really like smashbox artificial lights, I pat them on over my foundation (under powder foundation though) and they look flawless!
