Christmas is the perfect time of year to go extra on your make up. The fam are more relaxed – your great aunt won’t launch into a lecture about clogged pores and young skin. What’s more, you won’t feel like you’ve gone OTT for a cinema trip either. Yes, we know it’s dark in there, but you never know who you might run into.
Enter: MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder. A fave in the blogging world, this hot product will give you luminous skin to rival all five Kardashian-Jenner sisters. The best bit? You can find one in December’s bettybox so you don’t even have to pop it on your Christmas list!
Not only will it brighten your eyes (midnight Netflix binging takes its toll, guys) but it’ll give your cheekbones a magical glow. Quite literally, it’s your time to shine! We haven’t been pouring over those YouTube tutorials for nothing, you know. Here’s how to use it…
1. Prep your base
That means sweep on your primer, work in your foundation, contour your cheekbones and dust over your blusher so your skin is pretty much set.
2. Choose your brush
It’s all in the tools, girl. For a light, subtle glow reach for a fanned brush – it picks up less product but is still a whizz at applying it in just the right places. For a total glamazon look though, an actual highlighting brush is best.
3. Identify your glow zones
You don’t want to end up looking like a shiny bauble now, do you? To avoid that megawatt sheen, it’s important you only highlight the right places. They are: above and below your brow bone, your inner eye, down the bridge of your nose, above your cheekbones and your cupid’s bow.
4. Dust the powder over these MUA-pro zones, then nail every single Christmas selfie. You’re welcome.
