Wet n wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder Review

Don’t you love it when people tell you that you are glowing? Well all of us want a natural glow on our face, don’t we? But only if it was so easily attainable!! Pollution, dust, lack of sleep, stress, dry skin, oily skin or acne, all of this is a part of our lifestyle. No matter what we try, one of these are bound to make your skin dull at some point of time. You cannot have skin that glows from inside all the time. That’s where a highlighter comes into play!

I know… I know…. this is cheating, right?? So what?? Haven’t you heard the phrase? Fake it till you make it! I used to never wear highlighters as I had a combination skin and my cheek area is already oily. But as I started using a highlighter, let’s just say it changed my life!!

As I am kind of a beginner at highlighters, I will assume you are too. So lets start with the basics!!

What does a highlighter do?

A highlighter highlights all the high points of your face and when the light falls on your face, you glow.

How to apply a highlighter?

A highlighter should be applied at the cheekbones, on the bridge of the nose,on your cupid’s bow above your lips.

Which Brush to use to apply a highlighter?

A fan brush is the most preferred kind of makeup brush to apply a highlighter. I use the Pro arte fan brush. You can buy it here

Lets get down to the review shall we!!

Now I cannot say that it is the best highlighter ever because honestly this is the only highlighter I have used till yet. But I can certainly vouch for it because I have been using it since a year.
