To wrap up the end of the year, the Makeup Wars bloggers are picking their favorite products from 2014! The key is that we have to only pick *one item* in each category. Do you know how hard this is??? I honestly pondered this decision for quite some time and did finally come up with my pick!
Favorite Highlighter of 2014:
This powder is amazing! It gives you the most beautiful candlelit/lit-from-within glow. Seriously, I get asked "what is your secret for looking so young" when I wear this (for the record, I am 40 years old). This powder honestly just gives you beautiful skin...with a glow that isn't obviously; yet, it is still noticeable.
Ambient Lighting Powder by HOURGLASS Cosmetics recreates the most exquisitely flattering light from ethereal moonlight to luminous candlelight. Each powder captures, diffuses and softens surrounding light with groundbreaking Photoluminescent Technology. By manipulating and filtering out harsh light, the powders conceal skin imperfections, pores and wrinkles while the state-of-the-art formula delivers a multidimensional luminescence to every skin tone, making it appear softer, younger and perfectly lit. How to use: Use a powder brush to dust Ambient Lighting Powder all over the face. The powders can be combined and layered to create a sensational, multidimensional glow.
I wore this blush so much this year! Maybe it was because the packaging is *so cute* that I tended to keep it on top of my vanity...therefore tempting me to grab it more? Either way, it is a beautiful blush that gives great natural color. It makes me look somewhat "tan" which is hard to do with my uber-fair skin! I tend to put a bit of this blush all over (almost like a bronzer). That is the trick that the makeup artist did at Sephora who picked out this blush for me. :)
What it is: A trio-color blush packed into one pretty heart. What it does: Three perfect swatches of ultra-flattering blush allow you to either swirl the colors together and apply or use more of one shade for a custom flush or highlight. This blush was developed with easy application and a no-fail color palette to take the guesswork out of creating a sweet, romantic flush. With a baked color formula— the same technology that allows it to truly work on all skintones—the blush can be applied as a beautiful buildable finish.
