What girl wouldn’t want to radiate the feeling of “shining bright like a diamond?” Rihanna MUST have been talking about makeup when she sang this tune! Ha, probably not if you’ve seen the video, but RiRi does have a knack for always looking gorgeous and glowing!
There are 2 things that can instantly make me feel this way when I’m feeling more like a piece of coal than a diamond : Bright Lipstick and Soft Highlighting.
*(mine shown was a sample size, but will def be buying the regular version when this is gone!)*
- along the tops of the cheekbones,
- center of the nose (careful not to go all the way to the tip of the nose though!), and
- lightly above the cupids bow of the lip, gives just the right amount of dewiness without going overboard.
Highlighting too much looks sweaty, not healthy, so use a light hand and blend well. When done right, it can make you look like you’re glowing from within with a healthy fresh complexion!
Apparently with a lot of pressure applied to coal, it can turn into a diamond, along with a lot of other scientific stuff that needs to happen with a carbon atom. I think a little highlighter and bold lipstick sounds like a much easier way to shine!!
