Simplify Your Look With the Right Highlighting Palette

h1

Looking for a new full-coverage, layered makeup look to wear during the last days of summer?

Uh…wait.

That’s not right. How ’bout this instead?

Looking to simplify your late-summer/early fall looks with something light and fresh? The Revlon Rose Glow 02 Highlighting Palette ($9.97) can help. It works well as a highlighter, blush and an eyeshadow, all rolled into a single useful palette.

Here’s the simple step-by-step:

After filling in my brows and applying foundation and concealer, I apply the shimmery taupe shade (it’s the one in center of the palette) on my lids with a flat eyeshadow brush.

Next, I load a fluffy tapered eyeshadow brush (because a regular blush brush would be too big, and would also pick up the neighboring colors) with the pink shade, second from the top, and buff that on the apples of my cheeks for a fresh wash of summery color.

Now, to get all “glowy,” I grab a separate tapered eyeshadow brush (sometimes, I just clean the one I used for blush by running it across a paper towel to remove any leftover pink powder), and run it across the light peachy pink shade at the top of the palette.

Then I buff that on the tops of my cheekbones…

And on my Cupid’s bow…

And down the bridge of my nose.

To complete the look, I curl my lashes, coat both my upper and lower lashes with mascara, and apply a pink gloss to my lips.

Ta-da! Fresh-faced and glowing, courtesy of a mighty useful palette.
