                        Watt's Up! is a champagne cream-to-powder stick that is ideal for soft-focus highlighting. Girl Meets Pearl is a golden-pink liquid that is ideal for mixing with foundation for an all-over glow. You can use both products together or you can alternate, but they will both look gorgeous on your ivory skin!

                        First of all, don't forget to prep & prime your skin! Apply a moisturizer followed by a primer to create a smooth canvas for your makeup. You can apply watt's up! before or after your foundation - try using a foundation brush, a sponge, or even your finger!
