Sometimes you just don’t have a highlighter on hand to complete your makeup look! Lucky for all of us.. there are some natural options that you probably have in your makeup bag or pantry!
My first alternative is always some eyeshadow. I personally use Tarte pallettes, and I absolutely lovee using the lightest shimmery powder. I just brush it on my cheekbones, the tip of my nose, and on top of my cupids bow. And I love multitasking makeup products! (Note: all eyeshadows aren’t “natural”.. but it can be! 🙂 )
Maybe you don’t have eyeshadow – but do you have some petroleum jelly? I’d also like to insert in here that petroleum jelly has SO MANY USES! I use it on my lips, as moisturizer, to soothe irritated skin, to make myself smile (taking it back to cheerleading days), and now.. as highlighter! Put a tiny amount on your face to get a glow.
And last but not least, oil is the MOST IMPORTANT item to have on hand for beauty, in my opinion! I use it to cleanse, moisturize, and to highlight. Take a SMALL dab of coconut or vitamin E oil on your finger and dab it on your face to get a super dewy highlight. Voila!
So those are my top items to use since I basically never have highlighter on me in my tiny makeup bag: trying to be minimalistic, ya know?
Have you ever used any of these?!
