Highlight with Hourglass

A gorgeous makeup artist friend sent me a hint which led me to the counter at Mecca Myer Sydney when I was away for a weekend. I wanted to try a new highlighter that would work with my pale pale skin, and Hourglass was on my radar.

I picked up Hourglass Ambient Lighting palette RRP $92

This amazing powder wardrobe contains three magic formulas ,

  • a neutral peach beige powder made specifically for wearing in dim light
  • an opalescent pearl powder that brightens the complexion for incandescent light
  • A sun kissed golden beige for radiant light to create warmth

Each can be used for different makeup needs/day/night/bright etc to create different looks depending on the light ..bring on some red carpet occasions!
The Illume Sheer Colour Trio RRP $92, is a great set for simple creamy blush, bronze and highlight in one palette. The blush is a gorgeous rosey peach that sits perfectly on my skin. The highlighter also doubles as a quick easy creamy eye shade on the run.
The other two things I picked up were an Immaculate liquid foundation (RRP $82) a slightly pricey mistake for me as it is really made for an oily skin, I’m dry and this is making me drier.. Despite the colour being absolutely on point…. Oh well, the search continues …
The double ended complexion brush, one end concealer, the other foundation is a great addition to my makeup tool kit. The bristles are super soft yet strong enough  to hold their shape. Mecca delivers with this great makeup range, the palettes are generous and full of product, no refills necessary .
