Highlighting is my favourite step when it comes to doing my makeup routine because I find that it really helps to complete the look together by adding a bit of an extra oomph. Nothing makes me feel as confident as I do when stepping outside of the house with sheeny radiant cheekbones and a glowy, healthy-looking face. Based on this reason, The Balm's Mary Lou Manizer knows how to deliver! Just a caution though- a little goes a long way with this Mary Lou highlight. With using a fan brush, you can create the most subtle glow with a single swipe, or if you feel a bit more daring by opting for a full on strobing effect, just pack on a little more of this buttery, finely-milled powder onto the brush and dust it across the high points of your cheeks and brow bones. I also like using this in the inner corner of my eyes to brighten the area up.
Last week, I did some splurging to blow off stress from university work load and I definitely do not feel an ounce bit of regret in my system. On the contrary, I am now a proud owner of the cult classic lipstick Ruby Woo. In case you've been living under a rock and not heard every blogger on the block brag about this iconic MAC product, let me tell you in short description: this lipstick is a showstopper. Suits every skin tone- from fair to medium and darker complexions, anyone can literally pull off this lipstick. I always have a hard time finding the right shade of red but this colour suited me perfectly. It has sort of a bright vibrancy to it that really makes you look fresh, awake and gives off a "I'm ready to take on the world" kind of vibe. Its more of a cool-toned lipstick with not a hint of glitter or a pearly sheen, instead it leaves a gorgeous velvety finish to your pout.
