hi folks! really confused about highlighters/shimmers. Are you meant to apply after foundation/powder and over bronzer or do you use instead of bronzer? Also, is kajal the same sort of thing as eyeliners? as you can see when it comes to make-up i'm pretty clueless!!!

the shimmmerbricks look gorgeous! do you wear them with any colour lipsticks or do you have colour co0ordinate them for example, pink shimmers with pink lipsticks etc? the bodyshop do a similar sort of thing to BB shimmerbricks for about half the price, but dont know if they are any good.

I just still like my Shimmer Waves better.
the only negative thing I could say about it is: if you use the colors as e/s, the color fades throughout the day, but it lasts pretty well on my cheeks when I use it as bronzer/blush

I usually apply my highlighter over bronzer or blush (or both if I wear both!!).

i usually apply my shimmer over blush, especially if i have shimmer on my eyes. i normally apply it last so that it will show up and not be blended in to the powder. i use mac's honour blush, skinfinish, or golden bronze loose powder, which all work great as h/l or shimmer and can be applied with or without blush.
