So it’s fair to stay that highlighters have become a serious piece of makeup kit. It was only a few years ago I bought my very first one, and they have become shinier and shinier in the months that have followed. To be honest, I love a good highlight – I love the ones which give a subtle gleam in the light rather than the ones which give you a metallic shine.
I want my highlight to look like I’ve been living on green juice for a while, rather than layering on the product, and Ciate have come up with the perfect solution in the form of their Dewy Stix. A colourless balm gives skin a buildable level of shine without any stickiness, tackiness or sparkle.
The crayon packaging means that application couldn’t be easier. For day-levels of sheen, I dot a little around the tops of my cheekbones and temples and blend in. But if I want to look a little glowier – I swipe it over my eyelids for a glossy finish, and add a little to the bridge of my nose. It has been released right in time for summer, so if you’re wanting to look beach ready – even if you’re nowhere near the ocean, this is the easy way to fake it!
