Contouring and highlighting has become part of my beauty regime ever since I first wore the look. From natural to bold, what I want, I get.
For my everyday makeup routine, I use a highlighting wand to emphasise certain areas on my face. When I was introduced to the Sleek Highlighting Palette, I began experimenting..
This glamorous palette consists of 4 colours, its packaging looks like a metal case but it’s only a metallic finish, however, it doesn’t look at all cheap, there’s some weight to the case and it doesn’t feel fragile like it’s going to break / snap. There is a mini flat brush included, I don’t really use it as I find that your fingertips are the only tool you need to see the best results. And if you’re a beginner, this is a perfect little kit to start with. Instructions on the back too!
How to highlight
Platinum White (cream form)- enhances the brows. Use underneath the arch / across brow bone
Antique Bronze & Royal Gold (cream form)- use on tops of cheekbones, the bridge of the nose and dap on Cupid’s bow
Renaissance Gold (powder form) – I like to use this as a bronzer, but this can be dabbed on to the Cupid’s bow too
All the colours are stunning, they melt beautifully on to the skin and suit absolutely every skin tone! So if you plan to order this palette online, it’s not one you’ll return. This palette is great to use in more ways than one, sometimes I like to add a little sheen to the inner corner of my eyelids or even across the lid. If you’re showing off a bit more skin, use this palette to highlight the décolletage and arms for a sun-kissed shine.
These 4 highlighters allows me to smudge and blend the most tiniest amount of colour on to my skin and I achieve a subtle dewyness. For the evening occasion, adding a little bit more goes a long way.
I rate this palette a 10, I can’t actually seem to find any faults. I’ve welcomed it to a staple part of my makeup diet now. It’s compact, great for all of you who are travelling, the staying power lasts for a the full day in the office, and the colours still amaze me with how well they change my complexion into summer skin. I received compliments on the day I first wore this! Will you…?
