Perfectly Matched: Makeup Revolution Radiant Light Highlighters

I’ve jabbered on before about how highlighters can be your best friend in the winter months, injecting radiance to otherwise dull and ‘flat’ skin. However, it’s often tricky finding highlighters that are available in different shades that can be used with varying complexions. The standard highlighter provides a touch of light, but Makeup Revolution have developed a trio of products that offer differing tones so that you can add more warmth to your look. Aptly named ‘Breathe, Exhale and Glow’, all three highlighters are wearable and bring together the benefit of a light bronzer and subtle shimmer. Unlike many other contouring products that can be a bit too much outside of the peak of summer, these bridge the gap perfectly and provide a dreamy result.

The swirled pans are full of a lightweight and smooth powder formula that can be brushed onto cheekbones and the bridge of the nose using a fluffy brush. Swirling the bristles around in the pan helps to lift the product and buff it into the skin for a super natural finish. I love how the result isn’t overly shimmery and there’s no glitter whatsoever (a miracle if you’re already a fan of highlighters – that’s tricky to find!) making these incredibly wearable.

I love the middle shade ‘Exhale’ for adding a combination of light and warmth to my skin, but there’s no doubt I’ll be moving onto ‘Glow’ when I have more of a tan in the warmer months. ‘Breathe’ offers a more standard colour with only the tiniest hint of bronze, making it a great default shade that can be worn all year round. Makeup Revolution seem to continue to knock it out of the park with every launch and this is no exception. At £5.00 each you can even justify picking up all three to see you through 2015 with ease.

Are you a fan of highlighters? Would you consider using a highlighter-bronzing duo?

The Makeup Revolution Radiant Light Highlighters are available exclusively online, priced £5.00.

    Those are so beautiful! I don't even know if I could use them! But really, I have been dabbing into the highlighting and contouring as of late, mostly using bronzer to add a glow to my dark skin. Any tips on contouring??

    Glow is more orange than I would have imagined. I think I'd go for Breathe.Kathryn /Cherries in the Snow

    I read another blog that recommended Breathe as an all-over setting powder, which sounded amazing. Each to their own, of course, but after seeing swatches I certainly won't be dusting it all over! However, a little over my acne-scarred cheekbones should do nicely to deflect light rather than illuminate imperfections, so it stays on my shopping list 🙂

    i've heard that these are rather similar to the hourglass ambient lighting powders, they have definitely been added to my wish list now 🙂

    Breathe is very pretty! I like Glow too but I don't think it'd suit my skintone.

    I'll be honest, I've never really understood how to use highlighters properly, I always fall for the colours though, so much pretty sparkle!

    I'm obsessed with the shade Breathe – it's the only highlighter I've ever worn during the daytime as it's so perfect for me! xx Magpie Jasmine || Palette Giveaway: Urban Decay, Nars, Charlotte Tilbury, Too Faced

    I really like breathe and exhale. If i would want to go for the combo i would probably rather go for exhale. Glow seems to be very orangey which is probably really good on a darker skin colour but i am a very pale faced gal ;)

    ohh I have been eyeing these for so long now…but I was so glad to see they have a radiant palette on their site so when pay day comes I know were my moneys going lol. That Glow shade looks a little scary though for us fair skinned beauties.By the way…great blog!!
