If you’re the kind of girl who prefers a subtle highlight, well, you do you. But for the rest of us who are particularly extra, subtle won’t do and the more blinding the glow is, the better. And while wetting the makeup brush with some setting spray or water sort of delivers, there are occasions in our lives that call a further amplified highlight.

The question is.. How do you achieve that?

Arielle Stenner, a 17-year-old from Australia who is Insta-famous for her blinding highlighter looks recently shared her secret – Bio-Oil. She spilled the tea on Instagram, saying, “[applying] Bio-Oil on the place where you are going to highlight and it turns your highlight into a damn sunbeam.” Why didn’t we think of this sooner?!

Bio-Oil helps the powder highlighter to deliver a richer, more radiant, mirror-like finish, and you also get skincare benefits! Typically used to minimise the appearance of scars and stretch marks, the elixir contains nothing but goodness including vitamin E, vitamin A, calendula, lavender, rosemary and chamomile oils.

Stenner also responded to a fan who asked if the oil would mess up foundation application, “If you apply a really thin layer with your finger in a patting motion, it shouldn’t disrupt your makeup or remove it.” She added, “I haven’t had any problems with it! But it could [differ] depending on the type of foundation you wear, I guess.”

Priced only from RM34.75 per 60ml bottle, we’re so trying this hack with Bio-Oil for ourselves!
