Splurge or Save: Shimmers

Highlighters really are on trend and is such an easy way to enhance cheek and brow bones. But with so many on the market it’s hard to choose. I love a multi functioning product and that’s exactly what today’s splurge or save product is all about. A good shimmer palette can be used to highlight, shade and used as eyeshadows. An essential makeup bag item in my opinion!
I’m a big fan of Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick. It is such a beautiful product but I find it can be a bit too shimmery, yes there is such a thing! However, The Body Shop Shimmer Waves does exactly the same but with less fear of looking like you’ve got mirror cheeks. Both are available in various shades but the bronze shades are so similar as they offer a range of dark brown, medium brown and bright shimmer shades.  
 
The only difference? The price point!
 
 
HOW TO APPLY
Cheeks
 
Sweep a blusher brush through all five shades of shimmer and dust lightly on cheekbones after blusher or as your blusher (skin tone depending). Focus on applying the lighter shimmer shades on the top of cheekbones where light naturally hits the face and use the darker under the cheekbone to create a shaded effect to hollow out the cheeks. 
 
Eyes
The lighter shades work best in the inner corners of the eyes. Blend the darker shades in the crease  of the eye and along the lower lash line. The lightest shade can be used along the brown bone as a highlighter.
Will you splurge or spend to become a bronzed goddess?
