How to make your own HIGHLIGHTER at home- let’s shine!

Highlighters are the most glam and fun makeup products that add that final touch of magic to your look! I love using highlighters as it instantly brightens and brings out my best features. Highlighters can be very expensive and it can also be difficult to find the shade you like. That’s why I like to use my own homemade one as it is super budget friendly and as it is handmade you know exactly what goes in it 😉 Make your own highlighter at home, using these simple ingredients. The best part about making the highlighter yourself is that you can customize it just the way you like.
