Fall Highlighting Picks from MUA
For those who know me, you already know that I’m pretty obsessed with the MUA Light Lustre Highlighting Collection. Not only does this collection provide you with a beautiful variety in both powder and liquid highlighter form, they’re super pigmented and are very wallet friendly also!
The Highlight Duo Powders come in three shade combinations: Lavish, Majesty and Splendour. These are actually baked powders, which means you can apply them wet or dry. I’ve played around with both and I prefer applying these wet. They just seem to give me a more concentrated and fluid glow. However, if you decide to apply them dry, you won’t be disappointed. They are very luxe and velvety to the touch, and they are super easy to blend also.
I’ve mentioned this before, but I feel it’s really important to re-emphasize the point that these are buildable formulas. What that means in simple terms is that you’re not going to dip your brush or sponge into the pan and then brush lightly only to find a super dark splotch of color goes on your face. Since these are buildable, they go on sheer to begin with so you can add as much product as you like to get the look you’re going for. There’s nothing wrong with formulas that aren’t buildable, but for those of us who are a little heavy handed ( like myself ), buildable formulas are an answer to a prayer.
As you can see from the images above, all three duo collections feature very different shade combinations, so there is an advantage to owning all three. They’re priced reasonably enough that it only makes sense to keep one of each. They can each give you a different effect and or look, depending on what you’re trying to achieve look wise.
I also love the MUA Light Lustre Collection are the Liquid Highlighters. The thing that sets these apart is that they contain high concentrates of pearl which gives you a beautiful reflection rather than flashback. Some people like to apply these with a brush or even their fingers, but I prefer using a beauty sponge. I find it gives you more of a sheer, airbrushed look. Using your fingers is okay, just make sure they’re clean or else you risk transferring bacteria to your face ( which could possibly lead to acne and breakouts ).
