Earlier today, I have a friend over-She is going through her makeup and says “You have to swatch this highlighter. I’ve been looking everywhere for it and I FINALLY found it……” Literally, as she is saying this- It totally breaks. Everywhere. First thought– Now I have to buy her a new highlighter. Which really doens’t bother me because-makeup shopping 🙂 But quickly, I remember I have seen this on Pinterest somewhere and now I finally have a chance to try it!
From what I have researched, this should work pretty well with almost any powder makeup- and the highlighter worked great! So check it out-all it takes is some alcohol. Dont hit the liquor cabinet-let’s go the bathroom cabinet for this one. Grab this. Before the alcohol, just kind of squish the broken powder into even smaller pieces ( I know-what a mess.) I used the same toothbrush from the jewelry cleaner tutorial-just use the other end! Or maybe a small cuticle stick, popsicle stick-just whatever you have handy!
And after mixing the alcohol+makeup, you see it looks a little goopy. Trust the process though, and let it dry. The highlighter to the right is the same one -just you know….all pretty and unbroken. (My sis-in-law happened to be here and had the same HL with her! This stuff must be good yall)
Also, she wasn’t kidding-this is so beautiful! And for all who aren’t familiar with using highlighters, just sweep a little bit on the top of your cheeks toward your hairline. And a little dab on the tip of the nose will do wonders!
This one is ‘Precious Petals’ by Wet N Wild. Cheap alternative to some of the higher end ones and totally worth your moo-lah. Click Here For the website and search “Precious Petals”. It;s only 4.99!!!!
