Makeup Revolution is known for their excellent eye and face palettes and I’ve been testing out a couple of them since the past few months. I’ve tested out some of their best face and cheek palettes and here’s my review. Whether you’re looking for a blush palette, a contour or highlight palette, or something that has all these together in a handy little kit, you’re bound to find something in the brand. Their range is quite extensive and the price point is quite reasonable! You can purchase these online at Flipkart.com, Amazon or Nykaa.

If you follow beauty trends on social media, you’d know that “strobing” is the buzzword these days. Strobing is pretty simple – just another fancy term for highlighting. It simply means focussing the light on the high points of the face i.e the cheekbones, the brow bone, the cupid’s bow and down the bridge of the nose. To achieve this, a light reflective product is used which could be in the form of a liquid, cream or powder and is applied along the aforementioned areas of the face. To create a healthy, dewy glow with an intense highlight, the products are built up in layers and blended well to achieve the desired look.
Here are 2 ways you can achieve this –
Tip #1 – Liquid + Powder Technique
Use a liquid highlighter like the Chambor Light and Sheer Highlighter, MAC Strobe Cream or Revlon Photoready Skinlights for the first step. Using your fingers, blend the product along the high points of the face. Make sure the product is well blended on the skin. Next, use a powder highlighter and gently sweep it with a fan brush along your cheekbones. Depending on your skin tone, you can use a champagne, pale gold or soft bronze highlighter. I quite like the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks and the Revlon Colorstay Highlighting Palette. This method works best for people with normal to dry skin.
Tip #2 – Powder + Damp Sponge Technique
Use a damp sponge or Beauty Blender and use that to stipple a powder highlighter along the high points of the face. The damp sponge ensures that the product is evenly blended and you can do 2 layers to build up the intensity to get a strong highlight. This is the method I used in the image above and I used theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer to get this look! Since I have oily skin, I prefer powder highlighters to liquids and creams especially in the warmer seasons.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks are a cult classic and the newly launched Revlon Cheek Highlighting palettes look just like them! Today I’m reviewing the Revlon palette in shade 030 Bronze Glow which is quite similar to the Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick. You might recall seeing me use this extensively in the September 30 day Daily look challenge posts.
Price : Rs 950 for 7.5 g
Also available in shades Rose Glow and Peach Glow.
For Day 11 of the September Daily Look Challenge, I did a simple bright look with winged liner, pale gold eye shadow and pop of pink on the lips! I love these kind of easy looks that don’t take much effort but add a lot of life and color to the face!
I’m wearing the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in shade Infamous here.
I had a lot of requests for a Beginners tutorial on How to Apply Highlighter! Highlighter is one of those amazing products that can make a subtle but considerable difference to your makeup – it gives you a lovely glow and hence makes your skin looks healthier! In this video, I talk about what a highlighter is and how to use it. I have used Revlon Cheek Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow for this tutorial.
