If you're a huge beauty junkie then following celebrity makeup artists on Instagram is a must. By stalking these beauty pros, getting your daily dose of makeup inspo has never been easier, trust us!
This time around, the beauty shot that grabbed our attention and earned the most deserving double tap of the day is Lauren Reid's night out-ready look. Seriously, we just can't get enough of that gold highlight!
Naturally, our obsession does not stop on Instagram—we just had to find out what highlighter was used on Lauren! Lucky for us, her trusty makeup artist Mac Igarta is just a message away. To achieve that warm glow, Mac went for a gold highlighter to compliment Lauren's sun-kissed complexion using the Bord de Plage Highlighting and Bronzing Palette from NARS. (Add to cart—stat!) When asked for an expert tip, Mac shares, "Just choose the area on your face na gusto mo i-highlight because you wouldn't want to look too 'oily.'" Right on!
Aside from being strategic on where to put that glow, Mac also suggests not to go over the top when it comes to the rest of your face. He explains, "You may notice that since I highlighted Lauren's cheeks and nose, I chose matte eyeshadow and lipstick to create a perfect balance." Shimmer on the skin, matte on the eyes and lips? Noted! Thanks, Mac!
