My Holy Grail Highlighter!

16 Oct

I’ve been using highlighters for a while now and have tried  many but have come to love Mac Mineralize skin finish in the shade soft & gentle.mac-1

It is my holy grail highlighter! I use it down the center of my nose, cupids bow, chin and upper cheekbones for a beautiful glow. I’ve been asked so many times about my highlighter and as promised, I’m finally sharing it with you guys today. The luminous champagne hue looks amazing on everyone. Check it out for yourself! ysjj
