This girl used a highlighter on her whole face and it will blow your mind

Have you ever wondered what on earth you’d look like if you put highlighter across your entire head? A mirror, a spoon or a 50p coin?


We think this question might have popped into self-taught make-up artist Mariya Lyubashevskaya’s head, as she only went and walloped a load all over her face for fun!

Using a blend of seven cream to powder highlighters, Mariya took herself from matte to unstoppable shine in a matter of minutes. And we think it looks absolutely incredible.

Mariya started her base with Nars Illuminator in Copacabana – two pure layers as a foundation, to be precise – then moves on to Makeup Addiction Cosmeticsโ€™ Light Reflecting Loose Powder, which worked as a setting powder.

She then ‘bronzed’ with The Balmโ€™s Betty-Lou Manizer (as she couldn’t possibly be without bronzer) and ‘blushed’ with Anastasia Beverly Hillsโ€™ Glow Kit in That Glow.


After this alternation between liquids and powders, she then topped the looked with some lashes and a pout. The two main ingredients to a super sassy lady, if you’ll agree.

Wanna see the finished look? COURSE YOU DO!

Oh we do love to see a girl shine! But I don’t think this is quite what we had in mind…

For Mariya, it wasn’t a serious look. No way Hosay.

In fact, her Insta said: “This is definitely NOT a wearable look but it makes for great photos!”

YOU HEARD THE LADY! And we absolutely love it!

You glow girl.

You can peek at more of Mariya’s work on her YouTube channel and Instagram.

Next time should we put blush all over our face, or will we look like a tomato? Let us know at @maximumpop
