A Beauty Look That’s Worth Going Out Just to Show Off

This is what we call bringing out the big guns. In collaboration with Sephora.

We remember when highlighting first became a *thing*. Mostly because we allowed our love of sparkly stuff guide one too many uninhibited shopping sprees; resulting in the collection of a half dozen products that, while pretty, we had no clue what to do with. Um, help?

In this series, we’ve partnered with Sephora to demonstrate how to cop the perfect highlight for pretty much every occasion. After all, the level of wattage you’re after during a big work meeting is very different than, say, a night out. Thanks to our handy glow meter guide, you’ll know exactly how much shine to expect (from buttoned-up to blinding). Happy highlighting!


Now that we’ve unlocked the entry levels of the highlighting world, it’s time to kick things up a notch (and then some). Rather than erring on the subtle side of things (like, say, when you’re at work or meeting with your MIL), there’s no time quite like when you’re having *a night* to go all out. Like, allllll the way out. Pile on the Dew Drops with abandon. Ideally done with a drink in your hand, while Drake plays, or something.

If that doesn’t quite set the mood, maybe this will: your high school reunion. You know, that wonderful time where you find yourself face-to-face with all the high school pals you haven’t seen in a decade plus? Brush up on your Romy & Michelle if you’re not quite getting it, but the mission of the night is to look good—your best, even. Glowy, of course, being the key objective. Here’s the 1-2 product combination that’ll get you there.

1. Using your finger to blend, apply Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Gel Highlighter to the high points of cheek and nose.


2. Let loose and pat on Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter to the cheeks and bridge of nose to your desired glow.
