Sienna X Illuminating Pencils

Helping you along the way to that 'fresh from holiday' glow...

As my regular readers will know, one of my favourite make-up looks has to be highlighted, dewy skin.

With this in mind, I am absolutely loving Sienna X’s new Illuminating Pencils.

Sienna X – the tanning brand – have launched these creamy pencils to add the finishing touches to their tan products. Designed to highlight the skin in areas such as the brow bone, cheekbones and decolletage, they come in 3 colours…

Bronze: The warmest of the three, this pencil is ideal for anyone who has applied tan and wants to add a natural looking glow as it has equally warm undertones. You might also want to use this as an eye colour; the colour is rich and will be easy to blend for a sultry, smoky eye.

Silver: When looking at the pencils in the box, I had assumed that this would be my least favourite shade. A silver illuminator? However, when applied it turned out to be my favourite. Although the body of the pencil is silver, the actual product is champagne-like in colour (think of MAC’s classic ‘Tan’ pigment). As a paler girl, this is the perfect highlighter for me, blending into my fair skin without any harsh lines.

Gold: A classic shade, this pencil is a pound-coin gold. Blended onto brow bones or used to highlight the inner corner of the eye, this is a pigment for those who like soft, neutral make-up.

Being so creamy in texture means that these pencils blend in so easily, yet they’re firm enough to apply to smaller areas like the cupid’s bow with precision. Not sure which shade you’ll like best? That’s the beauty of having three – you can bespoke a highlighter to suit your skin. A thick, chubby stick, these are gorgeous highlighters which are much easier to keep in your party handbag than the loose powders that compete with them.
