Ever since Kelly mentioned Mariya Lyubashevskaya doing her face entirely with highlighters, I knew I wanted to try it out at some point. It became a pretty popular YouTube challenge following her video, bringing about some pretty intensely highlighted faces.
I think the original experiment is fun, but I really wanted to challenge myself to try to make a fully highlighted face look actually wearable. Let’s see if I succeeded…
I used this highlighter palette for the eyes since it has a variety of shades. I keep this in my freelance kit since I can use it on different skin tones, so I was excited to bust it out for this challenge
I'm really pleased with how this turned out actually. I think if I wore an actual lipstick I could feasibly get away with wearing this in public (although it's a little more intense in person), which is what I was going for.
- Would you ever try this challenge?
- What should I do for my next beauty dare?
