When you turn 21, it’s a big fucking deal. And you don’t want to look like you just rolled out of bed hungover as all hell (although chances of that will be pretty high). So you want something glamorous- go crazy! You only turn 21 once, and everything is downhill from here. So overdo that makeup and beat that face! You need to be ‘twenty-one and overdone’
Here is my look from my 21st birthday
Nyx cosmetics “auburn” micro brow pencil
The balm cosmetics “meet Matt(e) nude” pallet
Glitter injections silver glitter for the inner corner
Elf cosmetics liquid liner in “black”
Lorreal USA true match foundation in “n2”
Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit in “medium”
Becca cosmetics& Jaclyn hill highlight in “champagne pop”

No ladies and gents, I’m not talking about the markers. I’m talking about makeup.
Highlighting is essential to makeup now a days especially since contouring is out – and strobing is in!
Strobing doesn’t mean don’t contour at all, it’s just a softer version while basically drenching your face in any and every highlight you can get your pretty little paws on. Check out desi Perkins YouTube for an in depth tutorial on strobing.
Two cheaper priced highlighters that have become a few staples in my kit are nyx cosmetics! They are $5 online and can be bought individually. The pay off isn’t as intense or pigmented as most but these babies do the jobs just fine.
Another highlighter that can do no wrong on literally ANY skin type at all would be the “high beam” liquid highlighter by Benefit Cosmetics. This tiny bottle will last months and can be blended out with a beauty blender or your finger
Last but not least is the holy grail of highlighters. The queen. The highlighters that slays all other highlighters – Becca cosmetics and Jaclyn Hill’s Champagne Pop.
This shit is no joke you guys.
All of becca cosmetics highlighters are unreal. I have “opal” in my collection as well. But I’ve never used a highlighter so pigmented or so universal than this one.
These are just a few different priced highlighters. But don’t worry loves, we will be talking about these beauties again.
