Mary-Lou Manizer Highlight | Must Haves

Hi Everyone!

Who doesn’t have this amazing highlighter? If you spend any time on YouTube following beauty gurus, you might have heard about it… a million times, haha.

 

Well, I was on the anti-bandwagon, as I often am with “over hyped” products. Guess what, this is definitely worth the hype. The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer is a golden highlight powder that packs a serious punch!

  

My favourite thing about this product is that it’s buildable. You can use different types of brushes to get different effects as well. A stiffer, more dense brush will give you a stronger colour payoff. Whereas a big fluffy brush will give you a natural, ethereal glow. I also own the Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder in the shade Brilliant but I have to admit I reach for The Balm one more often.

Lots of blending gives a subtle glow…
Awkward vein highlight, haha…

Even though my skin type is combination-oily, I can still use highlighters with proper placement. By avoiding the forehead it doesn’t look greasy. Instead, I sweep this in a C shape from above the tail of my eyebrow down and along my cheekbone. I avoid bringing it onto the apples of my cheeks. A slight dusting over the bridge of the nose and cupid’s bow gives a nice balanced effect.

Whether you want something for everyday, or a full-on night out strobing effect, Mary-Lou‘s got you covered.

As always, follow me on Twitter and Instagram to get updates on what I’m using and loving as well as when new posts are up!
