Some special highlighters I love
Speaking of colorful highlighters，people are usually afraid of trying. But as a fan, I would love to try different brands and products. So I want to share two highlighters, and both of them contain several colors that can be used separately or mixed them to create a new color, which is a small technique I always go for.

Merry Christmas to Me
So here's my Christmas haul, normally I wouldn't be posting on Christmas Day, but Ontario begins lockdown tomorrow so I am unable to spend it with my partner this year (Long distance relationships am I right? 😭) I've been after a PML palette for a little while but they are so expensive, so I decided I'd purchase the #Pat McGrath Labs - Eye Ecstasy Kit First Edition Limited Release[products]# because it was way cheaper than anything else available on Sephora Canada, and it comes with #Pat McGrath Labs - Crystalline Prismatic Pigment[products]#in Angel Dust and a PAT McGRATH LABS - Fetisheyes Lengthening Mascaramini. I also bought PAT McGRATH LABS - Eyedols Eye Shadowin Gold Standard because it was on sale for $13CAD. I also purchased KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Alchemist Holographic Palettewhich I have been eyeing for YEARS and it was also on sale for $13CAD so I snatched that up as soon as I saw it. The shimmer doesn't show very well in my image but I want you all to know "holographic" is not an exaggeration. I've been experiencing a lot of issues with my skin lately, so I purchased The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HAand The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solutionbecause there's a lot of hype around these products and I'm confident they will help with my specific issues, and I already have The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 which both work well for me. I am excited to try all these products and I will review each of them at some point. P.S. does anyone else collect all the sequins that come in your PML packaging or is it just me?
Are you a holo fan?
I love a holographic shimmer, a color shift, a duochrome. I’m a sucker for them all. Just a collection of holographic inspired products ogx - Kandee Pop Glam Ultra-Hydrating Conditioner this and the shampoo that go with it are my favorite. They smell so sooooo good. And the scent stays. I actually hadn’t used regular shampoo/condition in a couple years but broke my routine just for this scent. Now I’m hooked. It’s great for coaxing a wave out too. KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Alchemist Holographic Palette eh. Pretty and fun. You aren’t wearing it everyday so who cares beyond that. It’s cool as hell. LUSH - Groovy Kind Of Love Bath Bomb I could go broke buying all the Lush bath bombs. This one is no exception. Smells amazing. The color can sometimes stain your skin though, it’s hit or miss. GLAMGLOW - Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer this is one of those products that I can’t ever tell if I love it or hate it. It smells good. Has a good texture. Sometimes I’ll wear instead of moisturizer and I feel like a shimmery oil slick. I think it’s better dabbed on dry spots. I have it in Nude Glow Rare Beauty - Always an Optimist Illuminating Primer URBAN DECAY - URBAN DECAY Single Eyeshadow I would buy every dang duo chrome color Urban Decay made I love these so much! These 2 are Tonic and Lounge. BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter I use this alllllll the time as a highlight for the inner corner of my eyes or to give my lips an extra pop. It’s way too shimmery for all over though. #Doll Face Beauty - hologram prismatic lip gloss[products]#[FourStars] perfect holographic color. Sheer shimmery blue. A little sticky and doesn’t last long.

Easy (five minute!) makeup for ZOOM Meetings
Doing my makeup and feeling put-together is one of my favorite things, however I don’t always have the time or energy to be able to achieve a full-face beat every day. Soft and gentle glam, I use this look when I want to feel ~soft~ and glowy, but only spend minimal time on it. I start with NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer which I use all over my face, spot concealing redness of pimples, around my nose and lips, tip of my nose, and between my eyebrows. This brightens and evens your skin tone without a full face of foundation. You can use primer if you want, when I do I use a blurring primer like TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer or beautyblender - Pore Minimizing Primer which smooth skin and even look good just on their own. I set with BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder and then move on to my eyes. I use one eyeshadow palette with a few colors, two of my favorites are NATASHA DENONA - Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette and EM COSMETICS - Limited Edition Divine Skies Eyeshadow Palette which have both mattes and shimmers. Important: they don’t patch! This makes blending a breeze. I put a neutral brown in my crease and outer V, then layer a dark brown in my outer v and smudge on my lower lash line. Adding shimmer is optional, but I usually do. For this I just use my finger and swipe on the lid. All powders for my face bronzer, blush, & highlight applied with one fluffy brush. I apply blush by pinching the powder brush in my fingers to elongate it to place product where I want— my fav is PATRICK TA - Monochrome Moment Velvet Blush which applies smoothly on all skin (prepped or not). I layer with benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer in a 3 shape, and finish with whatever glowing highlight i feel like. In this image it’s OFRA - Nikkietutorials Everglow Highlighter Brow filling is optional, but brushing them up with a gel helps you look awake and youthful with little effort. Finish with mascara and a tinted lip balm or moisturizing lipstick like Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick or EM COSMETICS - EM Cosmetics Lip Cushion and you’re ready to go in less than ten!

My Fav Highlighters! ✨✨✨
HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Powder This highlighter has always been my favorite. Its refined powder gives a natural, soft and glossy look. I don't think it's necessary to buy HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Blush since the 10g of highlighter already lasts forever. Besides, I find the powder of the ambient blushes to be less refined. FENTY BEAUTY - Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Shade: Sand Castle + Mint'd Mojito I actually bought this highlighter for night date😊😊, but I ended up using it quite often for everyday look. The powder is relatively soft and sticky, so it adheres to the skin very well and hides my pores. I like to use eye shadows with cool shades, so I needed a cool shade of highlighter to match it. For example, I often use the green shade with the CPB 310 eye shadow. The Sand Castle has more of a champagne color and is not as cool a shade. It's also suitable for everyday use.
HOURGLASS-Ambient Lighting Blush
Are the praisinh reviews true?
I initially bought this palette because I saw it all over the beauty community. Is the hype true? My thoughts: This palette brings together classic highlighter shades with a twist! They all have a new element to them. These highlights are VERY pigmented!! Overall this is a great palette and I would highly recommend it.

🌸Hello Spring My Go-to Match🧚🏻♀️
🧚🏻♀️Spring is one of my favorite seasons. It makes me think of warm weather, sweet marshmallow, and charming floral. If you ask me what my go-to match for spring was, I will pick YSL couture palette, shade 09 Love, and Canmake cheek&face color 05. 😍YVES SAINT LAURENT - Couture Eyeshadow Palette YSL couture palette, shade 09 Love. The shade of love has already made you think of spring date, right? Compared to other palettes, this palette is extremely cute. I marked the use of my daily makeup, which is also the instruction from YSL. B means base, H means illuminator/highlighter. 123 are colors that can be used anywhere. Compared to eyeshadow, I prefer using this palette as highlighter or blush.😉 Because this LOVE palette is not so highly pigmented. The shade of base and highlighter is suitable for a sparkling highlighter or blush. But it’s long wearing after a whole day hanging out, the color is still there. 🤩CANMAKE - Cream Cheek  Sweet Apricot Canmake is one of my favorite Japanese drugstore brands. No matter their packages or products themselves are so adorable. The main color of their packages is pink, which is soooo cute. I almost owned the whole series of the cheek&face color. I have panned so many colors. This 05 one is my pick for spring. Super cream and easy to apply. It is blendable and buildable as well. 05 is a pink peachy tone. I think many of you would like this color. Every time I wear this blush, I feel so energetic. Even it is a creamy type blush. It is not oily at all. Because as I know, many creamy type blushes are so oily, even some big brands. Canmake’s cheek&face color is pigmented and long staying!! And they are cheapppp!! Amazing, please all in!!💰
YVES SAINT LAURENT-Couture Eyeshadow Palette
The Kat VonD (or KVD Beauty, now) Alchemist highlighting palette is one like no other. The shape is one of a kind, and the look and feel of the packaging is also! I have never seen another triangle palette before. I love the formula of these highlighters, they apply so nicely, are striking as hell, and last all day. The only downside to this palette is that you really have to wear them with a specific look. These are so holographic that they won’t look right with your every day makeup, unless you wearing holographic blue and green colors every day. I did use the blue when I was a mermaid for Halloween, so that worked out wonderful. Overall, worth the money. Beautiful shades and beautiful packaging!

Ofra Cosmetics Island Time Palette What’s inside: Bellini Blush- neutral peachy-pink Mai Tai Blush- soft tropical orange Punch Blush- bright corally-pink Cosmo Blush- fuschia with a hint of sheen Bali Highlighter- peachy-gold glow 🏖Cosmo Blush - full sized 10g compact of the blush shade featured in the palette . 🍍5 Flexi-Stick - hybrid lippie with flexible color that goes on creamy like a gloss with the pigment of a liquid lipstick -Top Shelf- mauve mocha -Swizzle- muted berry pink -Shaken- mauve berry -Slush- rosey nude -Fuzzy- warm peach nude I love everything about Ofra's face palettes. The packaging is absolutely flawless. They're sleek and compact but very solidly built. They also have perfect lids... which sounds weird but hear me out. The inside has a huge mirror and nothing else, no stupid logo or wasted space. It closes very securely so there's zero chance of it popping open in your purse or luggage. I like that the pans are easy to remove so that you can move things around and mix and match with other Ofra palettes. The pan placement is perfect too. They're positioned in a way that allows you to use a big ass brush without making a mess but there's also not a ton of wasted space. And the most underrated feature of all, a very strong hinge allowing you to position the mirror exactly how you like.Have you ever tried to use a palette mirror that doesn't stay upright?? It fucking sucks. Initially I wasn't so sure about the white packaging. It looks great when it's clean but I have dirty makeup fingers 96% of my life... luckily the material is easy to wipe down and doesn't stain.
Benefit Highlighter Review
benefit - Watt’s Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter I had gotten a small sample of this from Sephora a long time ago and I used it all up and immediately bought a new one. Reasons why I recommend this product: Creamy w/o feeling tacky/sticky Buildable and blends very well Gives you a natural glossy glow- not so glittery/sparkly Product will last you a long while I use this product everyday even when I do a makeup-no makeup look. Rather than using it on my cheekbones, I use it at: inner corners of my eye: this makes a huge difference in your look- makes those eyes pop bow of lips When using it when I want a heavier look, then I’ll apply it to my cheekbones, nose, nose bridge, and part of the forehead to accentuate those features. Cons: The cap tends to fall off. Also, I don’t use the sponge on the opposite side. I apply and blend when done w my finger.
