All going well, as you read this I am waking up in an apartment in Melbourne surrounded by four bloggers in various states of undress.
I suspect St. Murphy will be wearing a strategically placed sheet … or his Moo Moo. Mrs Woog will be dressed in her clothes from the night before and out on the street looking for a 7-11 to buy a packet of B & Hs after having her supply bummed off her the night before. Eden will be walking through the apartment with two cans of Ambi Pur trying to disguise the strange smell that has taken over the apartment. Madam Bipolar (aka Sawhole) will have her investigative journalist’s hat on trying in vain to uncover the source of said odour.
Me, I’ll be setting up the bathroom for a makeup and hair show that could rival a teenage girl’s sleepover party on steroids.
Apart from wielding my ghds on everyone including St Murphy, I’ll be out to create an illuminating look for our day of learning and networking at Problogger Training Day.
Something tells me that the new weapon in my illuminating arsenal will be working over time.
What new weapon, you ask?
Now, before you get all concerned that I’ve ditched Benefit’s other highlighters – High Beam and Girl Meets Pearl – RELAX. There’s always room in my makeup bag for the illuminiser I never knew I needed until I started using it.
Besides, Watt’s Up! is different. So the new addition is justified. It’s a cream stick that you can apply with the stick and then blend with your fingers or the attached sponge applicator. High Beam and Girl Meets Pearl are liquids. For me, this ease of application is a big plus, as is the staying power of the cream.
But let’s get down to the glow of it. Because, let’s face it, that’s why we’re all here. To get our glow on.
In a nutshell, Watt’s Up! gives good glow. Excellent glow in fact.
I apply it over makeup on my cheek and brow bones and the champagne sheer coverage has the effect of immediately lifting my tired eyes and complexion. It works on its own or under makeup too, I just prefer the finishing effect I get from schuzzing it over the top of my foundation.
So if you’re one of the 270 bloggers at Problogger Training Day today and you see me whipping this out of my handbag, feel free to demand a try. The more the merrier. Let’s see if we can illuminate the whole room.
Do you use a highlighter or illuminator as part of your makeup routine? Do you have a favourite?
