All aboard the makeup wagon! Toot toot!
Jumping right on the makeup challenge train, I decided I had to do the Full Face Highlighter Challenge too after seeing Nikki Tutorials and Jeffree Star’s videos on it. The original video that started it all was by Mariya then turned into a challenge by Nikki and Jeffree.
So what is this highlighter challenge? Basically, do all your makeup with highlighters so you look like a disco ball.
Want to see how well I fared at this challenge? Well, grab your sunglasses and just keep reading below!
First off, here’s the video that started it all and to Nikki and Jeffree’s videos.too.
Now, on to what I did to recreate this crazy look.
The first thing I did was use this NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in place of foundation.
I applied it with a foundation sponge all over mah face.
Next, I took this HD Powder from elf in the shimmer shade and set my entire face.
Looking pretty damn glowy.
Moving on to adding some color to the look, things started to get a little weird.
I took this Milani Baked Blush in Dulce Pink and used it as an eyeshadow into the crease and around the eye to add some depth.
I applied it everywhere I would a transition shade and add a shade to create depth.
Then I applied it like I would a blush around the cheeks, then connected it to the eye and around the temple.
Looking very 70’s glam eh?
Then with this elf Illuminating Palette I added some highlight to bring features forward.
I used the yellow based shade around the undereye and blended it into the pink shade onto the cheeks and hit up all the high points on the face.
Back to the eyes, I took my NYX Strobe Genius and the lavender shade on to the lid, inner corner, and brow bone. Then the lightest and shimmeriest shade onto the high points as well.
Now for the even weirder part! In opposition to the highlight, I took this warm hot pink matte lipstick from Kat Von D Beauty called bachelorette.
I used bachelorette to fill in my brows and create a dramatic wing on the eye. I was really feeling a Cyberpunk vibe with this look. Kinda went for a Cyberpunk Kabuki feel.
I also used the same liquid lipstick on my lips. Not my best application but hey ho
I added a thin bit of black liner right at the base of the lashes.
And finished her off with some mascara.
Bam! Finished look!
I added some holo glitter across the cheeks but it doesn’t really show on camera.
This makeup was way too fun to the play within photo editing apps. LOL.
Bee Beautiful. Bee You.
