There’s no better way to glam up your look than with a pop of highlighter. Creating a shimmering glow upon your cheekbones, it adds that final touch to any makeup look. For the ultimate Christmas shade, there’s only one brand to look out for.

MAC’s Snow Ball Face Bag in Whisper of Gilt is the highlighting kit of your dreams. Containing the Extra Dimension Skinfinish highlighter in a flattering gold shade, with a rose gold-handled applicator brush, it has everything you need for creating luminosity. Housed in a rose gold, sequined bag with a fluffy pompom, it’s sure to cheer up anybody who finds this under their Christmas tree.

Apply Your Base

The key to a flawless, glowing look is a healthy base. After cleansing, toning and moisturising, apply a thin layer of foundation and set it with a translucent powder. Cancel out any imperfections with a colour-correcting concealer for an even base, making it easier to build on without leaving your complexion looking patchy.

Glow Up

Taking the MAC brush from the Snow Ball Face Kit, lightly pick up some powder from the Whisper of Gilt Highlighter. Gently dust it onto your cheekbones for a subtle glow during the day time, and build it up for a more intense look on a night out. You can also add a small amount under the brow bone and above the cupids bow for extra definition.

Set Your Makeup

Once you’ve applied your makeup, you should set it to maintain that fresh ‘just-applied’ look for as long as possible. The MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Spray will refresh the skin whilst adding a healthy, dewy finish. Alternatively, you can lightly spritz the brush before applying your highlighter for stronger pigment and a more intense glow.

How to get the Angelic Glow...

If you can’t get your hands on the Snow Ball Bag, try the MAC Snow Ball Opalescent Face Powder in shades Here Comes Joy or Happy Go Dazzingly.
