Thinking about how much the Kardashians must spend on any given day on their beauty regimens that keep them looking so flawless can be dizzying, to say the least. But the highlighter Khloe Kardashian swears by is surprisingly affordable, but delivers the perfect amount of glowiness we all want this summer. I believe that's what you call a win-win, ladies and gents.
How affordable, you ask? It only costs $6, which is cheaper than an extra-complicated iced-coffee-with-a-shot-of-espresso-and-extra-whip order from your local barista.
According to her latest blog post on her website, Kardashian's go-to highlighter, Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked, provides a natural color that can be used all over for an iridescent glow. Makeup Artist (and constant fixture on the Kardashian Klan's Instagram and Snapchat Feeds) Joyce Bonelli says, "Your highlighter should be a shade lighter than your natural skin tone, and bronzer a shade darker. I applied Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked as a highlighter to her cheekbones, and bronzer to her jawline and around the hairline."
According to Kardashian, when she uses the Vivid Baked highlighter, her cheekbones are "so sharp they could cut a b*tch." Um, sign me up.
To get Khloe K's flawless highlights, here's what you have to do: Apply dots of concealer as a "map" of where you want to accentuate, blend them together with a sponge, and then follow the lines with your highlighter brush.
