September has been a whirlwind sort of month for me. Weddings, dinners, parties, appointments. For a person who complained about the lack of excitement in their life, this month completely threw me off guard with just how busy my days have started to become. Not complaining though as I've had a grand time in these past few weeks. Though my skin doesn't seem all that happy with my suddenly-eventful life.
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.
