Have you ever seen a really nice highlighter but suddenly went “wait, that is not appropriate for my skin color…”.
That is not an excuse anymore! Bold illuminators make for amazing eyeshadows!
It is easier than you think to make your eyes pop. Here is a list of my favourite highlighters turned into eyeshadow:
1. Everglow by Nikkietutorials x Ofra.
This brand new collaboration between this adorable make-up guru and Ofra led to a collection that comes with 3 lipsticks (Nude Potion, Coven and Spell) and a highlighter wheel designed for all skin tones. But are you ever going to need all 3 shades as highlighters? Probably not, this is why you can turn the darkest one into a lovable copper eyeshadow. Nikkie made a really good example out of it!
2. Aurora by Anastasia Beverly Hills
At a first a glance, this palette might seem suited only for special occasions. Spectra, Orion and Lyra are pigmented shades with particular metallic reflection challenging to fit into everyday looks. However, as eyeshadow topper, these colors could take your eye make-up out of this world!
3. Moonchild by Anastasia Beverly Hills
The dreamy colors of this Moonchild kit are also perfect eyeshadows. They will make you look seem majestic to the moon and back!
4. Princess Cut by Jeffree Star
I have to say, this one does an amazing job when it comes to sweet highlighting the cheeks, but it also can be an amazing product for the eyelids! The cotton candy final result will raise the sugar level in your look.
5. Regina George by Jeffree Star
When you first see it, it looks more like a glowy blush rather than an illuminator. However, you can turn it into a bold eyeshadow winged line that will turn some heads.
So, next time you buy such a beauty product, keep in mind that it can be more versatile than you imagine. Highlighter turned into eyeshadow is a playful manner of getting as creative as you can with make-up.
