I recently attended the 'Art of Illumination' evening by MUA Luxe cosmetics, launching their new luxe highlighter collection. The event was held just off of Oxford Street in Central London in a beautiful open white space filled with small tea light candles, white furs, and gilded mirrors.

Upon arrival, I was greeted by the organisers, and headed straight over to the table of treats. This included rose infused lemonade, bags of popcorn, cake pops, and prosecco. It was all presented beautifully and I was tempted by the lemonade as I mingled with the other guests!

The new highlighting collection included three products: the illumination highlighting kit, the glow beam liquid highlight cushion, and the glow beam highlighting powder. MUA Luxe were also launching a brand new range of liquid velvet matte lipsticks. As you walked around the space, there were large posters of different face shapes hung from the ceiling, all appearing blank. Guests were to take a black light torch to shine on the posters, where 'highlighting spots' would reveal the best places to highlight and accentuate your face shape. I thought this was a quite clever and innovative way to demonstrate where the products would prove most beneficial.

Next, we all stood round for a highlighter demonstration by an MUA Luxe makeup artist. She sat down a member of the MUA Luxe team as a face volunteer, and swiped her cheekbones, cupids bow and nose with each product. We learnt a few tips and tricks while applying highlighter (like spraying your brush with setting spray before applying to make it stay all day). My favourite product was easily the glow beam liquid highlight cushion: it's a subtle coverage and a gorgeous golden colour, the perfect addition to make any makeup look pop!

The makeup artist finished off the demonstration by applying one of the new liquid lipsticks. The range comes in four colours: red, dark brown, light brown, and blue. I was a bit taken aback by the blue, but I think on the right person, it could look amazing! I left the event with the goodies to try for myself, and I haven't stopped wearing the different highlighters since.
