Yaye! Huda Beauty has just released their new Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette ($45) for her devoted fans to go gagga over! It comes in two configurations, Golden Sand – a warm gold toned palette, and Pink Sand – a light pink toned palette. I purchased the Golden Sand, which will look amazing on anyone with suntanned skin. The Pink Sand palette is great for fair to medium complexions.
The palette lives up to its expectations. It is the first groundbreaking palette I’ve seen in a long, long time. Huda designed this palette with step by step instructions to apply it. That is what makes her 3D Highlighter Palette so special. It is all in the way Huda layers the textures, a cream, and a powder, because if you layer an oil with a powder highlighter, your glow will be amplified!
Each of the shades can be used alone. You can use the Melted Strobe (cream) to create a highlight on the Cupid’s bow, the bridge of the nose, and the highpoints of your face if you want an all over healthy glow. It is a natural dewy cream that will create that lit from within look. You can also use it as a final step on top of powder to increase the intensity of your highlighter.
If you prefer a look of combining shine, warmth and flush to build a 3D pop, then follow Huda’s step by step guide:
Prep your face using the Melted Strobe. You can use a sponge or your fingers to apply it to the face. It smooths your skin and will amplify the light-reflecting pearls!
Set the Melted Strobe using the lightest highlighter in the palette.
Apply from the cheeks to your temples, to set and bring out your pop!
Sculpt using the darkest shade, placing it under your cheekbone. This adds dimension to your face.
Flush using the medium highlighter onto the apples of your cheeks for a healthy glow. The blush is gorgeous, and you can use it as an eyeshadow.
Do you want blinding highlights, or do you want to look like a Golden Godess, or do you crave that ethereal look that you just fell from the heavens? You can control the intensity of your glow from subtle and natural to zing pop wow!
Oooops Huda, you did it again! I am obsessed! You created another stunning palette! From the texture, color, easy application and final results , and the fact that highlighter magnifies any makeup, the blend of facial oils together with powder smooths the texture of the skin, and in turn amplifies the reflection of the pearls, Bye Bye to amplified pores ! The days of pigments emphasizing skin unevenness is over. 3D Highlighting Palette is an all in one Ultimate Face and Cheek Palette!
