Holiday Shimmer with Katie Elizabeth

Happy Tuesday friends! So you guys are gonna get a double dose of makeup tips to help keep you looking fabulous this holiday season. If you missed yesterday's post, I had Jenna from Ivy & Grace blogging about her favorite holiday makeup tips. You're in luck because I have the beautiful Katie from Katie Elizabeth Blog showing you guys how to keep it shimmery during the holiday season. I'll let her take it away...


Hey everyone!  
I'm Katie from the Katie Elizabeth blog where I write about a variety of topics including (but not limited to!) life with my husband and Golden Retriever puppy in Michigan, my favorite recipes and my love for any and all beauty products.  I'm so excited to be here on makeupHER today!
Keeping in theme with Nikki's fabulous blog, I thought I'd share one of my personal favorite holiday beauty trends: shimmer.  This is the time of year to be glowing so I say let's break out those highlighting products!  And promise that you really don't have to spend a lot - along with a couple of my tried and true favorites, I've also included some great drugstore options.  There's definitely something for everyone!

Pictured from left to right, top to bottom:
My longtime favorite: the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick
Physicians Formula Multi-Glow Healthy Bronzer
NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator: only $5!
Watts Up by Benefit includes a highlighter on one end and a blender on the other
A recent purchase that I'm loving: Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfecter
The highly multitasking NARS Illuminator
E.L.F. Powder Shimmer: another super low price option
Can't wait to try this L'Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter, I've heard great things!
Huge fan of Benefit High Beam Liquid Highlighter as well
Are you big on highlighters/luminizing products?  Thanks again to Nikki for letting me take over for the day- make sure you guys come on over and say hi sometime!  :)  Happy holidays!
