nick 2012:</b> it was a nice spinach and feta one - i'd literally never cooked before [...] 30 minute meals, i started it before x factor and we ate like when jonathan ross was on, so it did take a little bit longer. my mate that was there was like 'do you want me to just take you out for dinner? should we just go out for dinner?' i was like 'NO, it's going well!'<p><b>nick 2014:</b> once when i was trying to woo someone i was like 'what do you want for your tea? i'll make you whatever you want' and they were like 'could i have like a spinach and feta filo pie?' i was like alright.. i had to figure out how to make that, it took about 4 hours.<p>
Make Your Own: Liquid Highlighter [Super Quick Trick for Glowing Skin]
It’s not always easy finding the right shade and formula of highlighter to suit your skin type and skin color, because the shops usually only come out with 1 or 2 generic colors, and I find many formulas either too shimmery and sparkly, not pigmented enough, too greasy, or they set too fast to spread and blend nicely.
Just mix your own.
And there’s hardly any mess or wastage involved. Of course, this post is only for those who might want to do a little D.I.Y. instead of purchasing a separate highlighting product. If you already own good ones like Becca’s or The Body Shop’s. or you have oily cheekbones and prefer powder highlighters, then this post isn’t for you!
You will need:
A moisturizer that is not too thick and greasy, or that sets quickly or too matte. I used Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion +, because it’s silky enough to impart a nice glow to the cheekbones and “dissolve” the pigments nicely, but it’s not too heavy or greasy. You can use any lotion that YOU like as long as it works with your skin.
Choice of pigments or powder shadows in a shade that works for your skin tone. I have 3 color recommendations. You don’t need these exact products. Just something similar.
Pale to medium-light skins: Example shade - MAC Pink Opal. Look for any pale shade that shifts a soft pink when you rub it out. (My version is “doctored” for use. I mix equal parts translucent setting powder and equal parts Pink Opal so the pink sheen isn’t quite so strong and I can apply it right onto my skin dry.)
Medium to tan skins: Example shade - MAC Tan pigment. Look for a metallic beige with a bronze cast. Nothing too orange or too yellow or you will look jaundiced.
Darker skins: Example shade - MAC Pink Bronze. This is an interesting translucent bronze that shifts a rosy coppery-pink. It will not look chalky or ashy the way some lighter pigments will, and that hint of rose will just liven up the complexion better than a yellow or orange-toned bronze.
