Coconut Oil Is The New Way To Nail Your Highlight

Huda Beauty is a big fan.

Want to get that highlight gleaming so hard you can see it from outer space? Listen up!

Beauty blogger Huda Kattan, aka Huda Beauty, just dropped a makeup tip so game-changing - yet so simple - you won’t believe you weren’t doing it sooner.

The trick to a dewy glow with serious staying power, is apparently applying coconut oil between two highlighters.

Kattan shared a mini tutorial in the Instagram video above, alongside the caption: “I know this is a bit weird, but I love using a thicker oil to set in between my highlight! Coconut oil is my favourite.”

In the clip, she applies her first highlighter (Becca’s Jaclyn Hill Highlight Palette) before picking up a jar of coconut oil.


Kattan warms up the oil on the back of her hand and applies to her cheekbones using a dabbing motion with her fingers.

Finally, she finishes the look with a second highlighter (Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder).

Summer makeup, sorted.
