Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder, Candlelight - Finally Found What I've Been Looking For

Highlighters are hard to get right, they can either be too glittery or shimmery making your cheeks look like two Christmas baubles. Or the colour is wrong and they are either too pink or golden and leave you with almost extraterrestrial looking skin.

Well not anymore!

I finally got round to trying Kevyn Aucoin's Celestial Powder in Candlelight and all I want to do is throw all those other crappy highlighters away! This is the perfect highlighter, instead of leaving a stripe of patchy glitter on your face this leaves the most beautiful subtle sheen. Exactly what a highlight should be. I honestly cannot rave about this enough, sometimes music just says it better than words

As you can see this is already well loved! My favourite brush to use with it, is the Real Techniques duo fiber contour brush. I just brush this along the top of my "cheekbones" down the centre of my nose, under my brow bone (if I'm not wearing a shimmery eye shadow!) and in the inner corner of my eyes to brighten them. 

Sadly there is a cloud to this silver £34.50 this is an expensive revelation, but for me its well worth it. You can buy the Celestial Powder from Cult Beauty

#sorrynotsorry for the 90s pop!

    1. I know its mad! Hopefully it was last forever though so I dont have to buy it again for a long, long time!
