Part of the Heavenly Creatures collection released last month, Light Year is a highlighter that is both beautiful to look at and gorgeous on the skin. I mean, there are very few products out there that look like a nebula but also give your cheeks a lovely glow! :)
|MAC Minerlize Skinfinish in Light Year|
The base of Light Year is a mildly shimmery, pale pinky-peach shade, which is amped up with swirls of rose and bronze. When blended together, the effect is a highly reflective golden peachy-pink. Applied lightly, it gives a dewy, shimmery glow to the skin without any trace of chunky glitter. Applied more densely, it is almost as pigmented as a blush on my fair skin. You can also apply the different shades separately to give more specific effects. The bronze swirls make for a lovely warm eye shadow!
In the current look, I've applied Light Year rather heavily along my cheekbones and more lightly on my temples and down the bridge of my nose. I've also used it on my eyes- the light pinky-peach as a wash all over my lid, brow bones, and inner corners, and a mixture of the darker bronze and rose shades in the crease. Here's a list of everything I used:
Foundation: Revlon ColourStay Liquid (Combo/Oily Formula) on Buff mixed with Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer in Bliss
Concealer: Cle de Peau in Ivory
Powder: MAC Blot in Medium
Bronzer: Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Hula Hula
Highlighter: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Light Year
Blush: Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blissful (lightly on apples of cheeks only- rest of the cheek colour is Light Year working its wonders!)
Brows: Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Ash Blonde
Primer: Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original
Eye Shadows: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Light Year (pale peach/pink as a wash and a highlight, bronze and pink shades on crease and outer corner), MAC Mulch eye shadow (buffed into the crease to add depth)
Eyeliner: Revlon ColourStay Liquid Eyeliner Pen in Black
Mascara: Clinique Lash Doubling in Black
Lips: Dior Addict Lipstick in Bobo
Here are a couple photos of the look under artificial light:

And that's it! This has been one of my favourite looks for summer so far- light and glowy, with a kick!
Did anyone else pick up some goodies from the MAC Heavenly Creatures collection? What are some of your all-time favourite Mineralize Skinfinishes (MSFs)?
