Affordable Strobing Makeup for a Natural Look

I like dewy makeup and for autumn focusing on highlighting sounds perfect. The first highlighter I fell in love with were this Java Rice Powder from Bourjois. It is so easy to create a more brightening makeup with this. And it is not pricy. After seeing the cute round Box on many blogs I got tempted to try this out and it is my most worn highligter. It is very light and at the same time pigmented giving a transparant shine. It gives the skin a slightly porcelain look.

Cream contour has not felt appealing to me but this one from Maybelline won me over. The light shade is perfect for a good natural look! Also there is something about this light shade that seems kind of porcelain like. Again in a good way. It has a super easy consistency  and is great for a touch up. If I don't wear foundatin I like to wear this with concealer for a comfortable bright base.

I have a few more affordable goodies here to use for strobing. Makeup Mekka have many interesting shades and textures in their makeup and this trio of cream shades is pretty for more intense bits of highlighting. Yet it is subtle and elegant for everyday wear. Gradually I might fall in love with more intense highlighters too and show them here. Now these are pretty good if you ask me to create a light and brightening look for pale skinned girls. Champagne colours are said to be best for fair skin tones. I hope you like this look!
