  • Why you’ll want to buy every single glowy highlighter to perk up tired skin

    Words: Fiona Embleton

    Once in a while a product comes along that makes you want to sing and dance and clap your hands. In the case of MAC Cosmetics that would be pretty much every highlighter in its stable. Especially the cult Strobe Cream, which no make-up artist worth their salt is ever without. But the new MAC Cosmetics In the Spotlight collection of highlighters will blow your mind. That is, if strobing is your go-to technique for imparting a pretty sheen on winter skin that’s starting to look duller than an MP’s Instagram feed.

    Love a highlighter? Whether you like a full on strobe or a subtle glow, Powder can match you with the perfect product for you – try it here!

    For dewy freshness, mix a few drops of MAC Strobe Cream in with your foundation. The original Strobe Cream (now called Pinklite) has been extended to include four new shades: Peachlite, Silverlite, Redlite and Goldlite. Which means there’s a shade that’ll suit every skin tone.

    Then to create a more intense opalescent glow, sweep one of the new Extra Dimension Skin Finish powders from the MAC Cosmetics ‘In the Spotlight’ Collection over the tops of your cheekbones. Their ‘extra dimension’ is down to clever new technology that makes the powder flash up one colour in the packaging, and another on the skin. Beaming Blush, for example, looks pink from one angle but casts a golden sheen from another – minus any big chunky glittery bits. The effect is so magical, you’ll look like you’ve been licked by a unicorn. Really.
