                      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!

                      Hi gorgeous!

                      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!

                      xoxo, B

                      with a foundation brush or even a sponge.
