My Favourite Highlights and Blushes

Hello loves, here is a few of my favourite highlighters and blushes that I reach for almost all the time.  I wanted to change it up and share something a little different.  
For deeper skin we can't wear things that are ashy on us, so no pale colours golds always makes our skin look so sun kissed, rose golds gives us a hint of colour while highlighting the face.  Highlight is best places on or above the cheek bones, where the light get caught and it looks amazing.  Blending your blush with your highlight makes for a beautiful soft focus colour and it allows your cheeks to shine with that healthy glow you may hear makeup artists talk about.

There are many companies that do highlighters and blushes, these are just my favourite colours and finishes, they apply smoothly, and last for a long time.
The stand out blushes are the Tom Ford blushes while very expensive for a blush, their lasting power really stands out and the colour combination and finish which I don't see often and its Tom Ford, that alone give you a head start in pricing.  Also MAC Double Definition the first photo is by far one of my favourite highlights, the deep gold just makes my skin look so nice, I use it all the time, such that I must force myself to use other things.
