My Favourite Highlighters

Wednesday, 20 November 2013

Highlighters can be strange things.  Pick the wrong one, and you could have a glittery, discoball mess gracing the tops of your cheekbones.  But pick the right one, and your face can (almost) completely transform into that of some mystical goddess.  So it's time I sung the praises of the ones that I love and cherish in my make-up collection.
