How to find the perfect highlighter palette
Perfect skin—it’s every girl’s dream. When your face looks fresh and healthy, there’s an extra spring in your step. You look instantly more put together. The confidence boost makes you feel radiant and powerful, and your true personality can shine through. But how do you get there? Between peels, masks, scrubs, concealers, moisturizers, and more, building the right skin care regimen for you can feel overwhelming.
One quick fix that I love is a skin-illuminating highlighter, like our Master Glow Kit. A good highlighter is essentially a hack for getting a flawless-looking face. When applied, it’s kind of like having your own personal lighting team wherever you go, adding dimension to your face without getting into an epic pro-makeup artist contouring session.
Most cosmetics are born in the classroom, and that’s also the case for our Master Glow Kit. We created it for our Master Glam Class, where students learn how to create sharper-looking cheekbones, fuller-looking lips, brighter-looking eyes, and a narrower-looking nose.
The Master Glow Kit is a cream–powder hybrid that instantly melts into skin and blends with almost zero effort. Another win: It’s loaded with superfine shimmer for an ultra-smooth, creamy texture.
But just like foundation, not every highlighter is made for every skin tone. To make sure no girl goes un-glammed, our master glow kit comes with a full range of shades:
Metal Moon: This is the lightest creamy highlighter in the kit. Use it to brighten any other colour, or apply it on your brow bone and inner corners of your eyes to give you a quick eyelift.
Lightning Dust: This icy pink tone is one of my favorite colours to add to the apples of the cheeks, as a highlighter over blush.
Fire Crystal and Girl Next Door: These two colours will change your life! They are the absolute best for a natural effortless effect, and they will still be lighter than your skin tone. They’re a perfect option for everyday wear. A metallic champagne gold pigment with hints of glitter, they leave an eye-catching chrome effect wherever applied.
Chic Phreak: This hue has a bronze base that is anything but ashy on skin. It’s a soft golden coral that works incredibly well on deeper skin tones.
Trophy Wife: This yellow gold highlighter’s cream-to-powder formula is super pigmented and blends so smoothly onto the skin! You can wear it on your cheeks or as eyeshadow.
Mean Honey: This one delivers a light dewiness. This colour gets a special mention for how magical it looks on everyone! Apply it on your cheeks and temples for a fresh-faced glow.
Hustle Baby: No matter where it’s applied, from the cheeks to the whole face, this hue is guaranteed to leave you beaming and warmed up with bronze! It’s one of my favorites for any skin tone.
Ginger Binge and Moscow Mule: With their bronze base, both of these colours were created with deeper skin tones in mind. The cream formula is great on dry skin, and you can use these two on both the face and eyes!
Skin care can be tough. It’s a ton of work to figure out and stick to a good skin care regimen. But luckily, a flawless look with fresh, dewy skin doesn’t have to take a lifetime to achieve. With a little help from a great skin-illuminating highlighter, you can get the boost you need with just a few brushstrokes. Ready for your photo shoot?
