What else you need to know:
“I wanted to make getting the ultimate glow easy for everyone. So we combined colours, formula and technique to make highlighting like a pro within each person’s grasp. Highlighter can really magnify any makeup, but there are concerns for people with larger pores as the pigments tend to emphasise skin unevenness which is a problem that I have. I love to blend face oils and pigments together to smooth the skin texture and amplify the reflection of the pearls. That’s when I knew I had to create this highlighter. It’s the all-in-one, ultimate cheek palette for everyone.”— Huda Kattan
For an all over healthy glow, add highlighter to the Cupid’s bow, bridge of your nose, and the highest points of the face.
1. Prep: Apply the Melted Strobe as a base to smooth the skin and amplify the light-reflecting pearls.
2. Set: Dab on the lightest highlight from cheek to temple to set and bring out the pop.
3. Sculpt: Apply the darker shade under the cheekbones to add dimension and shape.
4. Flush: Sweep the medium highlighter onto the apples of your cheeks for a healthy-looking glow.
The Melted Strobe can be used as a base but also on its own for dewy and natural, lit-from-within radiance.
Dab it on with a sponge or your fingers onto the upper cheekbones, brow arches, Cupid’s bow, and décolleté.
It can also be applied as a final step on top of the powders to increase the highlighter intensity
Use each shade alone, or follow this step-by-step guide to create a look combining shine, warmth, and flush to build a visible 3D pop.
