Heard a lot about highlighting but need a simple tutorial? I’m sharing how to make your skin look glowing and flawless in minutes!
Wanna talk about make-up?
I read a lot of beauty and make-up blogs and it seems like EVERYONE is all about highlighting and contouring right now. Instagram has been taken over by it too, with even men getting in on it in a hilarious way. My favorite!
I’ve taken some time to try to learn the highlight/contouring thing, but it’s just not sensible for every day. Honestly, there is hardly any occasion that merits an extra hour of painting brown lines on my face. I DO, however, LOVE a quick highlight. It’s a fabulous way of achieving that glowy, flawless look that makes you look twice at someone’s make-up. And it’s SO easy!
If you’re a fan of the more matte look, you won’t love this. But if you’re a dewy, sparkly kind of girl, this is for you!
I strayed from my normal photos and decided to do a video this go around. Which is basically a nightmare. Hello computer, I am talking to thin air. Weird. Please note that I am a hand talker, there is no fixing or changing that about me. You’ll always know how excited I am by how quickly my hands are flying around. Sometimes people get injured, what do you do.
That’s it! Easy, peasy, right?
Hopefully my video didn’t scar you for life, I assure you it DID scar me for life, but sometimes you just have to give things a whirl. I am hoping with a bit of practice I get better, so if there are other beauty videos you’d like to see, let me know! I’m here to help :)
Here are a few of my favorite highlighters — the first one is an eyeshadow, but it works great as a highlighter as well. It’s also the eyeshadow I was wearing in the video.
Here’s the brush I used in the video – I LOVE it! I’m also linking to a less expensive option that would work fabulously as well.
If you’re interested in the make-up I had on, I’ve linked to all the products below:

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat
