Natasha Denona Beauty Secret

You probably recognize makeup artist Natasha Denona’s work from the covers of ELLE, Marie Claire, and InStyle and on the faces of top models (like Bar Refaeli and Gal Gadot, to name a few). You may even have seen her many collaborations with world-famous fashion photographers. And you’ve most likely heard about her breakout makeup line, including her skin-brightening Glow products and high-impact eye shadows. But what else do you know about this beauty industry star?

I cannot say enough good things about this product. So imagine how excited I was when I started following rms’s Instagram and noticed they had a new highlighting tool: the Master Mixer. WHAT.

This rose gold highlighter claimed to be universally flattering and capable of easily mixing with blush, eye shadows, and lipsticks to create new shades. Amazingly, at the exact same time I was greedily eyeing this Master Mixer, my editor at Beautylish emailed me to ask if I wanted to try it out! Did I want to try it? Is the Pope Catholic? When the package arrived in the mail, I clawed the box open without using scissors.

The results were heavenly. The Master Mixer is a subtly shimmering rose gold shade, sheer enough to be barely noticeable on the skin. It just makes you look…glowy, in a warm way. I immediately tried it out in a multitude of different ways:

As a highlighter
Apply this product to your upper cheekbones, the inner corners of your eyes, the bow of your lips and your browbone. Don’t worry, there’s no glitter. The highlighter just makes you look like you walked into really good lighting. It makes your skin appear like you’re radiating good health from the inside out. Bonus freakout tip: you can use this with the Living Luminizer, for the kind of sun-kissed dewy look that only babies frolicking along ocean shorelines have.

As an eye shadow
Use your fingers to sweep this on your bare eyelids, and delight in the subtle glimmering of your mermaid-like eyelids. The color is buildable, so if you’d like to see it a bit more shade, just add another smudge and you’re good to go.
