With ‘strobing’ becoming the next big thing in beauty, it’s safe to say highlighters are the must-have product of the season. I find it hard to hit the balance between a strong highlight and a sweaty mess but my ultimate highlight inspiration is always going to be Jaclyn Hill. You can pretty much guarantee that in any given YouTube tutorial, Jaclyn’s highlight will be the stuff that a makeup lover’s dreams are made of. Jaclyn’s recent collaboration with BECCA creating the Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop has been hyped up to the max and I was ready to up my glow game.
Champagne Pop runs a little warmer than the usual pinky-pearly highlighters I would usually reach for but that makes it pretty much perfect for any makeup look, neutral or otherwise. As highlighters go, subtle it ain’t. It’s one of those products you need to use with a light hand and the fluffier the brush, the better. Layered on properly, it’s one of those highlights that makes you feel like a sassy supermodel and most definitely not sweaty.
The only downside for any UK based Jaclyn fans is that it’s a pain to get hold of right now. After toying with the idea of putting in a Sephora order and seeing one too many shipping casualties, I decided to just put in a request with a relative who was visiting the states at the time. All well and good if you know someone heading across the pond but not all that practical so hopefully BECCA will listen up and give the people what they want: their highlight to be on fleek.
