Whether I'm in full glam or a simple look, you can bet I'm wearing a highlighter. It adds such a glow and sparkle to your look — you can literally go from good to great with one product and who's not here for that?


I tend to try different types of highlighters, whether it's powder or cream — I really don't discriminate. As long as it's pretty and shinin', I'm good.

With all that being said, I tried a few highlighters and here's why you need to add them to your beauty arsenal.

Maybelline Master Chrome By Face Studio

Maybelline Master Chrome By Face Studio in Molten Peach

Shade: Molten Peach

Price: $5.99 - $9.99

This highlighter is bomb! I tried the Molten Peach shade and it's my favorite color from the line. It has a shiny, glittery, and warm metallic sheen that looks good on all skin tones and types. The Molten Peach has the same pinkish finish as the Molten Rose Gold shade, but a bit darker.

As far as the application, it has a very strong highlight, so a little goes a long way. Seriously, if you use too much, you'll be blinding. Also, it's not messy at all. I know some highlighters tend to have fall out, but I didn't experience that with this highlighter. It's easy enough to apply where you can use a brush or your fingers. Either way, you'll get a pretty good result.

I’ve never been a foundation girl. Truthfully, I typically stay away from it because it can break out my skin, and it’s tough to find a shade that fits. I have yellow undertones with a sprinkle of hyperpigmentation from previous acne struggles. Foundations with yellow undertones don’t seem to have it all the way together yet. In my experience, the foundations always give banana-hued vibes. I usually purchase two foundations and mix to find my perfect shade, which isn’t always ideal for my wallet.

Have you ever had a dating, relationship, or hook-up experience that went so wrong you started questioning yourself? Is there something wrong with me? Did I somehow set the wrong expectation?

Truth is, you can’t run from an idea that visits you every day and as we settle into another new year there's no better time to quit putting off that daydream and make it a reality, even if only part-time. When launching a business, taking it from an idea to reality isn't easy, however, I’m a strong believer that hard work and determination pay off for those that hustle. For fashion designer Megan Smith of Megan Renee, launching her namesake womenswear label was always the plan but it didn't happen overnight.
