For highlighting try something like the Prep & Prime Highlighting Pen. It comes in 3 shades a pale pink tone, a pale yellow and a medium beige/pink for all skin shades. This won’t give much coverage if you want to use it as a concealer under the eyes for severe dark circles but it’s great for highlighting the face!
If you want a great highlighting concealer try MAC Pro Longwear concealer, it has great coverage to still cover under eye circles but it’s light weight so you can still use to highlight all over the face!
For contouring use something like MAC Blunt, it’s a matte brown blush. Very pigmented a little goes a long way!
Since Blunt is a pretty dark people with more fair skin might have a little trouble applying it so I’d recommend Matte Bronze Bronzing Powder for lighter skin tones. It’s matte and a medium brown!
You could also use a MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural powder in a dark shade to contour with because the powders are matte, baked and creamy so it’d be like using a baked bronzer :)
Naked Lunch is a light cream shade with a pink undertone
For lipsticks try something like
My roommate uses that foundation and she says
- Full coverage (she has acne scars and occasional acne)
- Matte finish
- Thicker consistency so can look cakey if you apply too much
- Had to blot after wearing for 5/6 hours (she has really oily skin)
- Lasts pretty long on her oily skin in her opinion
She was right next to me as I asked her these questions LOL

Hi. I saw your post on moisturizers earlier, and I have what might be a really stupid question, but I don't know anything about this. I use Lubriderm (the sensitive skin kind, with no fragrance or anything) for my hands. Is there any reason I shouldn't use this on my face? (I'm sorry if this is stupid D: )
Not stupid at all!
Well usually body lotions are more likely to clog pores than face moisturizers because they contain more oils than regular face moisturizers and can feel more greasy. Body lotions can be more thick which will also clog pores. Some have chemicals and ingredients that are really meant for the face, the skin on your face is a lot more delicate and sensitive than the rest or you body. Some lotions/moisturizers will say for face & body, or just body, or just hands so you should read the fine print.
And of course many body lotions contain fragrance sometimes even glitter and such but it seems like yours doesnt.
I guess you can try it and if your skin reacts fine then it’s up to you! Some people have really resilient skin I just wouldnt recommend it to everyone :)
