The Holy Grail highlighting palette tipped to break the internet

Drop everything! Huda Beauty‘s eagerly-anticipated {3D Highlight Palettes} have landed! The secret to the ultimate strobed glow, each incarnation boasts four stunning hues to make your favourite features ‘pop’.

Since releasing her first ‘teaser’ posts, every die-hard Huda-holic has been clamouring to get their hands on these exquisite edits. We launched our waitlist just under two weeks ago, and amassed an insane number of sign ups from legions of strobing devotees. 

Available in two wearable colourways – ‘Pink Sands’ and ‘Golden Sands’ – each quartet features a creamy ‘prep’ shade (an opalescent base for your powder to ‘stick’ to), alongside three finely-milled highlighters to sculpt cheekbones for an intense, ‘cut glass’ finish. 

Just use your fingertips to tap the ‘Melted Strobe’ along the ‘high points’ of your face – the warmth of your hands will ensure a seamless, diffused look – then use the ‘Set’ shade of powder to add intensity and ensure that your highlight stays on fleek until you decide otherwise.

The ingenious ‘Sculpt’ and ‘Flush’ hues then allow you to enhance the ‘3D’ effect – emphasising hollows with the deeper, tawny shade before imparting an enviable, pinched-your-cheeks glow to the ‘apples’. 

With these simple four-step instructions detailed in the lid of each palette, the effortless exaggeration of your assets (cheekbones, brow bones, cupid’s bows, collarbones, exposed shoulders… you name it!) could not be more foolproof. Huda (as ever) has made it easy to achieve a flawless, photo-ready complexion – just build the layers for an intense, blindingly beautiful glow that’s guaranteed to steal the limelight…
