Powder vs liquid. Our glowing review. This probably won’t surprise you but our MECCA HQ emergency beauty kit is overflowing with highlighters. If we’re tired, our skin is looking dull, or we’re just feeling a bit flat, a dose of bottled glow is an instant pick-‘us’-up. But the question is, do we opt for powder or liquid? We love both, they just have different attributes. Powder highlighters are easy to layer over other powders, you can slowly build up the intensity if you want to take them to extreme-glow levels. Whereas liquid or balm highlighters are hydrating, melt into your skin, and create a natural, dewy finish. So which highlighter, powder or liquid, will you opt for? Let these how-to videos help make up your mind.
