The phenomenon that is highlighting is huge in the make-up world. Whether it’s summer or winter, it seems to be the one make up item that we can’t live without.

Now, I love make-up but I have to admit I have found it difficult to get on board with some of the trends. Contouring for example always looks great, but I never quite mastered it and I didn’t even attempt clown contouring!

But highlighting, I fell in love with instantly, that glow of light that hits your face so naturally.

This A/W, MUA have created The Art of Illumination LUXE highlighting collection. Inspired by the 2016 highlighting phenomenon but with an autumnal twist.

They have created a trio of products that not only complement each other but create different results. They can be used individually or all together, personalising your approach to highlighting.

The products can be used to emphasise, minimise and balance facial features depending on your face shape. Apply at the same time as contouring (if you know how!), for an ultimate on trend look or use alone over your base.

Master the no makeup, makeup with the innovative products.

Using a mixture of textures and formulas inspired by makeup trends from around the world MUA LUXE presents opulent, shimmer finishes. Matte highlight, lightweight highlight and gold beams of light – there is an illuminating look for everyone.




My new favourite product!

LUXE Glow Beam Highlight Cushion


For those who prefer a liquid highlight but want an everyday natural radiance the glow beam cushion is a luxuriously lightweight, gold highlighter. Apply this to leave a stunning, sheer luminous shimmer. The Korean beauty inspired cushion is suitable for a multitude if complexions and can be layered to intensify the end result. Press the cushion into the formula, dab and roll into your cheeks for a stunning luminous shimmer

The Luxe kit contains soft and radiant powder highlighters that create a light luminosity.
The 6 shades, in both matte and shimmer formulas, can be layered together or applied seperately to add a gorgeous brightness & glow to your complexion

MUA Luxe Glow Beam Highlighting Powder – Gold


Finally for a super sumptuous touch of gold apply the Glow Beam Powder. This can be used on face and body and the contemporary design ensures the powder is milled to a fine, deluxe dust.

These cards are great! They highlight (under a UV light) where you should be applying highlighter depending on your face shape

MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer

£3.00 each

I love, love, love the matte look in lipsticks! With the MUA Luxe lip lacquer you get the ultimate velvet-matte pout with this richly pigmented, silky smooth lip lacquer. The quick-dry formula glides on effortlessly to leave a gorgeous matte finish, that is smudge proof & long-lasting.
If like me you love the matte look but struggle to keep the wonderful colour from cracking throughout the day, try lining your lips with lip balm before applying the lip lacquer and when the lacquer starts to feel dry, just top up with lip balm each time. This keeps the colour and your lips feeling moisturised at the same time. The tip comes from the award winning make-up artist and MUA ambassador Karla Powell!
