As I'm sure most of us know, NYX Jumbo Pencils are great as bases for eyeshadows and can be used as eyeliners as well. But have you tried them as a highlighter?
Weird, I know, but hopefully you will understand what I mean by the end of this short post.
For the last few weeks, I've been a little lazy with my makeup and thought it was just way too much effort to grab a small brush, dip it in some highlighter product and place on to those magical highlight areas of the face - you know - inner eye corner, cupid's bow, yada ya.
Anyway, I glanced over to my Jumbo Eye Pencil collection and thought Yogurt looked like a great substitute for a highlighter and Boy George, it worked!
In the photo above, I used it on my cupid's bow on my top lip and it just adds a natural brightness to it and makes the lips look youthful, healthy and full.
It can also be applied to other areas of the face such as the inner eye corner, brow bone, nose bridge and tops of the cheeks. (Tip: When using it on the lips, it may be useful to apply the Jumbo Pencil before lipstick or gloss to avoid staining the pencil).
This particular shade, Yogurt, should look lovely on most skin tones and if blended out well, give a soft glow to the skin. It is not stark white - it has a frosty, champagne pink tone, which is quite flattering for this purpose.
Thanks for reading!
