GiGi Hadid. That's all I gotta say.

Well, not really, I have a little more to explain.

I always liked that golden glowy look but god damn it GiGi took it to the next level and made over-highlighting OK. And I'm OK with that. If you have absolutely NO idea what I'm talking about then hop on over to *here* to these google images so we're all on the same page. Web page, that is...

Anyway, I thought I'd share with you my favourites right now that I use to achieve this bronzed golden glowy goddess look. Firstly you gotta make yourself look tanned (unless you already are, then whoop-di-bloody-do for you!).  I'm OBSESSED with the Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel bronzing base, it's creamy and gives the perfect bronzed look. You can add a small amount for a little sun kissed look or layer it up for a full on Californian beach babe vibe. It retails at €39 which is expensive for me, but I was lucky enough to buy a barely used one off Depop for €28. The girl had literally used it to swatch. Cha-ching. I've had it since September and use it often and it's still practically full. I cannot recommend it enough.

Illuminators next. The NYX one is a creamy liquid and a beautiful orangey golden shade. Perfect for achieving a super dewy look. Next is the Collection Speedy Highlighter. I read about this on Cosmopolitan where Bridget March compared this collection one with a Smashbox highlighter stick. She concluded that they were basically the same but with a £20 price difference. You can read the review here. So yes, this highlighter is brilliant and cheap enough that you won't mind losing it if you bring it on a night out with you. Not that you should be expecting to lose your make-up on a night out though.

Lastly is this Catrice eyeshadow. Oh. My. God. This eyeshadow. It's highly pigmented and SO affordable. I didn't think it was going to be as good as it was when I first tried it but holy moly. It gives MAC a run for it's money. I think there are about 5 other shades in the Liquid Metal series, this one is the shade 030. I'm expecting a popular beauty guru to talk about these soon and instantly sell out. Watch this space.
