Highlighting is something I've yet to really talk about on my blog, so I thought it was about time I gave you the lowdown and introduced you to my wholly grail everyday highlighter - "shell" a cream colour base by MAC.

Now, I know not everybody uses highlighters, so let me briefly explain what the aim of the game is and why I adore them so much. Highlighters are one of those products that has the capability of changing your make-up look in an instant flash (yes, really!). The aim is simple - your skin to beam a gorgeous radiant glow, which if applied correctly looks simply stunning and very flattering, however, if you are resembling a shiny, glittery mess then you might want to re-evaluate the product you are using and how you are applying it! Finally application wise I mainly use it on the highest point of my cheekbone and underneath my eyebrow (on the brow bone) - occasionally I will dab a bit in my cupid's bow and a little on the bridge of my nose.

So onto the product, if you have never come across mac's cream colour bases then I seriously recommend you having a gander as they are such a versatile and easy to use product (not to mention they will last you a fair old while!). I apply the product by using my fingers, as I find it gives me the best coverage. I then like to take my real techniques sponge to lightly dab around it so that it blends in and doesn't look un-natural. Shell is described as a 'soft pink-beige with shimmer' which is pretty spot on. It's quite a natural shade and is perfect for day-to-day use as it provides such a subtle sheen to my skin that makes me look healthy and glowing. Overall, for the £15 price tag, I highly recommend this product, it is a staple in my make-up bag and again it's one of those product that I use everday but lasts me a life time (quite an exaggeration!) but it does last me a fair few months to say the least. Can you believe I am already eyeing up the next shades to purchase *slap on the wrist* (cough, I should be saving, dam you mac!).

Have you ever tried Mac's cream colour bases? What are your favorite shades?
P.S apologies for the bad picture quality, I am thinking of investing in some lighting soon as the UK is so dark and dim at the moment that I am never home when it is light (well when it rarely is light!)
