Over the past few years highlighting and contouring has gone through the roof and as a pale girl I was hesitant about the bronzing for many years. But as there are now so many products for all skin tones even on the high street I'm now fully on board.
As I love nothing more than cream products in summer I thought I'd share with you four affordable and fairly new cream bronzers and highlighters. I truly love them all and know you will too!
Lottie Strobe Fix - Starstruck
£6.00 ASOS here
Say hello to the new chubby highlighter that packs some punch in the strobe department. This is a lovely affordable option that comes in two shades; Starstruck and Spotlight. Both offer great pigmentation but for me Starstruck is the star here as it's a bright pearl almost white highlighter that's something a bit new to the high street. The chubby highlighter applies in a single stroke to a pretty dry cream finish that feels invisible on the skin but is able to be blended. This is perfect for on the brow bone and cheekbones to give an intense glow!
MUA Luxe Strobe & Glow Highlight Kit - Pearl Gold
£5.00 Superdrug here
Onto another amazing highlight/strobing product here that's excellent value for money and a product I've been absolutely loving for a while now. This is a dual compact with both a powder and cream highlight that's perfect for pale skin tones. I personally find myself using the bottom creme highligher the most as it's just stunning, again a white pearl shade, however the powder highlight is perfect for toning down the creme powder and setting it or to be used on it's own for a glowey finish to your foundation. From the thought out packaging to essentially having two products here this is the best value for money out of the 4 products here and something I'd highly recommend picking up.
Soap & Glory Highlight & Scult Cheek Stick - Pink, Pop & Pearl
£8.00 - Boots here
Ahhh, a budget Nars Orgasm Multiple dupe! This is a special one and the product to go for if you are after that healthy summer glow on the cheeks. Much like Nars Orgasm this gives a wonderful golden pinky peach glow with a creamy blendable formula that will not only suit everyone but instantly gives the skin a gorgeous boost. A totally winner for summer with or without a tan. Certainly a product to pick up when you're next in Boots if you have been interested in Nars Orgasm.
Models Own Sculpt & Glow Liquid Highlighter - Rose Gold
£9.99 - Models Own here or Boots/Superdrug
Last but not least I had to share with you a new favourite of mine that I know will be such a popular product this summer. This easy to use liquid highlighter/bronzer gives both the brows and cheeks the most perfect golden glow, ideal if you have medium to dark skin tone or you're sporting a tan. A great way to give skin a dewy golden glow and I'm tempted to say it would work all over the body especially on holiday. A lovely product I will be enjoying over summer when self tanning!
