RIXDIY: Rose Highlighter

Makeup companies are becoming more and more creative with their products, not only with their packaging but also the product itself.

One good example for this is the rose blush and highlighter. I first saw the Les Merveilleuses de Laduree from my friend, Juvy (@vanityplayground on Instagram). Her makeup collection is one of the best I’ve seen! (Follow her, too!)


Then I saw Lancome La Rose a Poudrer.

Then Beauty News on Youtube destroyed and weighed this rose highlighter, in their segment called “The Makeup Breakup“. In the video you’ll see that there is an artificial rose inside the product. For $60, you’re paying for its packaging, its design, and a bit on the product.

So just like a number of lovely Youtubers, I also made my own rose highlighter. Here are the items that I prepared:


  • an artificial flower of your choice, mine’s a rose, of course
  • primer
  • liquid illuminator (optional)
  • setting spray or any facial mist
  • highlighters or shimmery eyeshadows you don’t use anymore
  • alcohol
  • a box or any container of your choice
  • some foam or cotton to act as cushion for the rose highlighter

It’s super easy!

  1. Wash your artificial flower or disinfect it with an alcohol.
  2. Mix the primer and the liquid illuminator. As mentioned above, the liquid illuminator is optional.
  3. Apply the mixture on the entire flower using a clean makeup brush. Let it set.
  4. Spray with your setting spray. Let it dry.
  5. Scrape some of your highlighter and shimmery eyeshadows and mix them all together.
  6. Using a makeup brush, cover every petal of the rose with the powdered eyeshadow/highlighter.
  7. Place it in your container.
  8. Blind all makeup shamers!
This is the final product. Mine’s a bronzy pink (rose gold-ish) shade.


Initially, I wasn’t planning on using the Detail Make Over palette, but I DID end up scraping some of the highlighter in it.
