Hey Dubai Ladies! Here are 5 Wearable Ways to Use the Fenty Beauty Trophy Wife Highlighter

“Yellow diamonds in the light, and we’re standing side by side…” – Rihanna

 I’m pretty sure you’re gonna be singing this Rihanna song the first time you try the yellowish gold Fenty Beauty Trophy Wife Killawat Freestyle Highlighter. This is because this shade definitely feels and looks like yellow diamonds on the skin!

Seriously? Yellow? Is it wearable?

When the first swatches and makeup looks first hit Instagram, I admit that I was probably one of the many people who thought twice if the yellow gold shade is something I can use on an everyday basis. But I gave in to temptation because RiRi is absolutely one of my beauty loves and I got myself the coveted Trophy Wife shade for AED 168 when it became available in Dubai.

According to the product description, you can use this to highlight any part of your face and bodyeyes, lips, collarbone, cheeks, etc. I understand though that for an everyday woman, it is challenging to picture how this very yellow, pigmented product can actually work as a multipurpose product, especially when all we’re seeing on IG are yellow gold streaks on everyone’s cheeks.

So, I am going to make it easy for you and give you simple tips and tricks on how you can totally wear this highlighter.In this makeup look I used the Trophy Wife Highlighter in 5 amazing ways! And I must say, it totally works!

  1. Shimmery Golden Glow

Just because it’s super pigmented does not mean you’re obliged to streak your cheek yellow like a football fan. Use a fan brush and delicately apply a sheer layer on top of your cheekbones to get that subtle golden glow.

  1. Vivid Eyeshadow

The pigmented formula makes Fenty Beauty Trophy Wife a perfect yellow eye shadow alternative. Pair it with black eyeliner, dramatic lashes and nude lips to complete your look.

  1. Trendy Eyeliner

If you want a subtler yet playful eye application, use a wet eyeliner brush to line your eyes or eye corner with this highlighter. The color is yellow enough to be fun but the gold shimmer gives it a classier feel.

  1. Lip Gloss

It was Huda Beauty who started the lip strobe trend. But no need to spend extra to get that shimmer effect! It’s amazing how a few taps of this highlighter can completely transform your lip color and give it that extra wow factor. Try it on top of a violet lip or on a nude, rosy shade.

  1. Body Shimmer

I know everyone is talking about Fenty Beauty’s latest Body Luminizer, but if your wallet is not that excited to buy a separate body shimmer, then I assure you that the Trophy Wife Highlighter will also do the trick. Make sure to moisturize your skin with any body lotion, put on MAC Fix Plus Spray , and use a big fluffy brush to apply this highlighter all over. Now you just saved yourself AED 260!

I am personally not a fan of body shimmer but sometimes, I like putting shimmer on top of my hands especially when I’m going to a special event! It provides a great backdrop to gold jewelry like rings and gold bracelets!
