Problem: Your favorite highlighter is MIA, possibly due to your cat, despite lacking opposable thumbs, hiding it somewhere in your condo.
You turn over every inch of the place looking for it, peering under every piece of furniture and checking each of your cat’s favorite hiding places, but still can’t find it.
WHERE IS THAT DAMN PAN OF MAC SOFT AND GENTLE MINERALIZE SKIN FINISH?!
Er…not that I’ve ever experienced this. We’re talking hypothetically, of course.
Solution: You reach for a shimmery peach, coral, beige or white eyeshadow instead.
Yup — that’s right. Because your eyeshadow can double as a face highlighter!
Here I’m using MAC’s Extra Dimension Eye Shadow in Lorelei, a shimmery golden beige from the new MAC Alluring Aquatic collection.
After I’m done applying blush and bronzer, I swirl a clean finger in the pan, and gently rub it on my upper cheekbones…
…down the bridge of my nose (goofy face is totally optional!)…
…and on my Cupid’s bow.
And that’s it! Instant highlighting, all from a pan o’ eyeshadow.
Generally, whenever I do this, I like to use colors that I would also use to spotlight my brow bone or the inner corners of my eyes, like good ol’ MAC Shroom or Ricepaper.
But really, any eye-brightening shimmery beige, gold, pink or bronze eyeshadow should work.
Give it a try sometime, and let me know what you think.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Happy hump day, my friend.
