Hi my love bugs! I wanted to film this video for a little while now. I’ve been on a highlighter/illuminator kick the past few months!! Last summer I tried out a few, but once fall and winter came, I stopped grabbing them. Something about the warmer weather.. makes you crave beautiful glowy skin! This trend is HUGE this year and there are millions of options on the market. I probably went through about 25 (at least) to make sure I knew the best out there. Finally I feel like I have a valid argument about which are the best on the market 😉 Of course I am ALWAYS up for suggestions and new products! If you have a highlighter that you CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT, comment below because I would LOVE to try 🙂 I hope this video helped for those of you on the market! Each product can be used for different things. I listed a little description of each below the products.

XOXO Carli

   to mix in along with your foundation! It will give you an all over glow.
4. Physicians Formula Highlighter HERE I’m only link this so you can
   see what NOT to get. This is unfortunately a waste of money. 0 pigmentation.
5. Covergirl Luminzer HERE also not a big fan of this. It is very very
   light when you apply it. You will need to layer it for any type of glow.
6. Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer Highlighters HERE in Radiant & Ivory
   The radiant is great to use with or instead of your concealer. I use this underneath
   my eyes and wherever else I usually highlight. Radiant is the best color in my opinion.

I know many people have different definitions and visions of the word 'beauty'.. But mine is different. I think beauty really does come from within so basically I set up this page too help Any girl learn some super easy steps that can really help transform any insecurities that are maybe holding them back from showing their TRUE beauty.. I sound super corny. Some tutorials ive seen were confusing so I will try and keep them simple.. If i see something I can most definitely do it! ( hair and makeup related of course ... And computers but Thats a whole other story.) You know when you see something that makes you stop and say I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO DO iT... Well I can help!! When it comes to makeup ive very rarely followed the rules. Ive always been a trial and error girl ..

  1. love the tutorial!!! carli can you post the outfit details of the black and white playsuit that you were wearing yesterday thanks !!!!

  2. Seriously, every time I watch your videos/read your blog, I feel like I've gained so much cosmetic knowledge! (then feel the need to buy everything…) haha

  3. Carli, you are a beautiful woman. And I think you are definitely the best guru on you tube, & without a doubt the most gorge. I have a quick question…. did you get acrylics again on your nails, or are your natural nails seriously looking that good already??? They look fantastic!!! Can't wait for the next video!! And I know I'm not alone in that sentiment!!!

  4. Every morning I watch again and again your videos!!!! Just AMAZING videos!!!!!!! Every single video is watched a million of times!

  6. I've been using the NYX born to glow liquid illuminator in Gleam – which is a bit more pigmented than the one you're swatching – and I absolutely can't live without it! I'd say it's pretty similar to NARS Orgasm 🙂

  7. Hey I love your videos! But a quick question I have the revlon highlighter but when I dab it across the top of my cheeks it seems to rub off my foundation does this happen to you? What am I doing wrong? Thankyou ☺☺:-)

  8. Hi carli, im from Argentina, i've found your videos a while ago and been following your tutorials since then, i’ve been trying a lot of different mascaras and foundations for the last year but couldn’t find anyone i really liked untill i try the loreal ones you use and the telescopic mascara which i love!! I ve been thinking bout trying with some highlighters so this tutorial's been perfect for me!! even though we dont have half of the brands you mention as your favs jaja but i can find some of them.. Thank you soo much!! <3

  19. Life is all about good and bad experience
    Life is all about good and bad experience. It was all good and lovely when i met jully, she was a good business woman until things become rough for her and her business empire started liquidating. I was a very courageous and hardworking man so i decided to sell my inheritance to assist . We both struggle together and built the business world again. This time around the business was growing from strength to strength. I was surprise one Sunday evening when she came home with her secretary and told me that we cannot continue with this pretense called love. I was shocked and heart broken, i was in a friend, house for three weeks frustrated until i met fernando my old friend at the supermarket, he directed to me to Dr saka. I contacted saka and he told me that Jully was been manipulated by some spiritual power and he told me to provide some items which he is going to use to destroy the evil spirit. I never believe in voodoo but i had to give him a trial. To my greatest surprise, Jully called and started apologizing 2 days after i sent Dr. Saka the email. I am very happy and will continue to be happy for the good work the Saka has done in my life. Problems are been solved when good people like Saka are on this planet, please contact him through ultimatespearcast@gmail.com if you need any support in any problems in life. I love Dr Saka … 🙂

  27. I never thought it was going to get to a point where i would need a spell caster. When Greg suddenly changed i was so sure it wasn't ordinarily because i had spent the last 8 years with him and knew him like i knew my self. Greg eventually asked for a divorce which i did not want and that was what led me to search for a solution online. i met Dr. Henry of PERMANENT SPELL CAST TEMPLE and he told me that my man was under a spell and i did believe because he started acting weird suddenly and i had no explanation for that. Dr Henry promised me he was going to come back home and stop the divorce, and all that happened just under 24 hours that he did the reunion spell/spell removal. i am posting tonight because of the covenant i made that i would tell the whole world how powerful and great PERMANENT SPELL CAST TEMPLE is and also make his contact available for others with same marital problems out there. contact him today and put an end to your relationship/marriage troubles.

  28. I want to use this golden medium to appreciate Dr.jude a great spell caster for helping me retrieving back my relationship with my ex husband when he ended and turned back on me for quite along time now 3 years ago. He performed a love spell for me and within 24 hours after the spell had been cast I receive a text from my ex husband saying that he is sorry for the pains and tears that he had caused me and that he will not do such thing to me again in his life. I was surprised but later accepted him back again. Anyone that is in the same line of problem or different one that want to contact a spell caster should happily contact Dr.jude now on this email address:liberationlovespell@gmail.com if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back. So thanks to the Dr.jude for bringing back my husband ,and brought great joy to my family once again.email Liberationlovespell@gmail.com his whatsapp number+2348034062173

  29. I want to offer a bit of advice to anyone looking to find help on saving their marriage/relationship. Me and my husband had a torrid time for a whole decade; all our family & friends constantly advising us to get a divorce but we knew it would break our children’s heart. We tried so many different things to save our marriage and from trial & error we came across a very helpful Dr online that worked extremely well for us: http://Priestazibasolutioncenter.webs.com
    And now we are happily together with no more problems
    i have his Email: Priestazibasolutioncenter@gmail.com
