Based on our affinity toward lazy girl hacks and drugstore buys, it comes as no surprise that we’re currently obsessed with a two-in-one product that costs less than lunch. And since we’re being honest, most weekday mornings are quite the struggle in the snooze department, so if there’s a way to put a rush on our morning makeup routine, we’re all for it! That’s where this genius compact comes in: The Maybelline Face Studio Master Hi-Light is a light-boosting blush that delivers a natural hint of color, while instantly illuminating your complexion. Here’s why we basically hit pan in just a few weeks of wear!
Why We Use It
When we say this blush and highlighter combo illuminates your complexion, we’re referring to a natural, lit-from-within shimmer (think strobing) — NOT sparkle. The Master Hi-Light also comes in bronzer form, which is especially useful for those who want to contour and highlight without going through dozens of steps … or effort. This product appeases the lazy girl in all of us!
How We Use It
Pink Rose is our current fave and once you’ve applied your foundation and concealer, one swipe along your cheekbones with a full brush (like Lancôme Powder Blush #1) is all it takes to bring some life to your face!
You can either swirl the brush along the whole compact to blend the various (blush or bronzer) shades and shimmer together, or you can use each one individually and focus on highlighting areas like your brow bone or Cupid’s bow. Either way, this pretty little kaleidoscope of colors is now our go-to for bright, flushed cheeks!
