If you've seen celebrities like RiRi rocking holographic highlighters and wondered if you too can pull off looking like a black unicorn or an intergalactic goddess, the answer to your question is heck yes! Holographic highlighters are a great alternative to their champagne counterparts.


You might think pinks, purples, greens, and pearls are cute in concept and not for you, but wait until your skin proves you wrong! Upon application, the multifaceted shimmer of these highlighters will amplify your glow like none other and keep the compliments rolling in.

Holographic Highlighter How To

To pull off the look, you'll need to invest in a cream stick or a powder. If you're feeling ambitious, go ahead and purchase both. The cream stick is great for adding a subtle glow that picks up iridescent color when hit by the light, while powders generally create a bold pigmented look.

I used a combination of Loreal Infallible Galaxy Stick Baton Galactique in Astro Blue and Maybelline New York Master Holographic by Face Studio in 100.

I started by applying the L'oreal Infallible Galaxy Stick Baton Galactique to the high points of my face, such as my cheek and brow bones. Next, I used my fingers to blend the product into my skin, repeating the process until I'd built the cream up to my desired look.

I then used a fan brush to apply the powder highlighter. To increase the prismatic glow of the product, I spritzed my brush with a small amount of face setting spray before dipping it back into the powder.

To finish off, I used the tip of the brush to sweep the product down the bridge of my nose. Since I always like to go the extra mile, I also used the powder as highlighter on my eyes. I brought the look all together with NYX Duo Chromatic Chromatique Lip Gloss in Dayclub on my lips. The results did not disappoint.

You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
