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.

Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter

Killawatt Collection

Shade: All shades really…

Price: $34

I love the Killawatt collection and I'm not just saying that because I Stan for Rihanna, but because these highlighters are so pigmented and long-lasting. The Killawatt highlighters gives you a flawless glowing finsh and comes in a duos and solo compacts so you can mix if you choose. They offer a variety of colors including Trophy Wife, Metal Moon, Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby, and more.

My favorite is the Ginger Binge/Moscow Mule. I love the rich, glittery, and pigmented rose gold finish. Whether you like this color combination or not, you definitely need to have at least one Killawatt compact in your collection.

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.
