I’m calling it: The era of highlight is officially over
RIP to the fashionable phase for my oily flesh
by Katie Way
There is a point that every trend reaches where it becomes so overdone that it is stupid. And I regret to inform all you Glossier devotees and Fenty Beauty converts that when it comes to highlighter, we're there.
It's over, we killed it
We were handed the highlighter trend and we, frankly, abused it.
Highlighter morphed from a fun way to add a touch of drama to your look into an all-consuming obsession, as exemplified by the creator of the flare highlight or the woman in the video below:
Everyone just looks wet now! I'm sorry, but enough is enough.
The future is matte
The first sign of highlighter's downfall came in the product rollout for Glossier's finishing powder, Wowder.
In a post on Into the Gloss, the Glossier team expressed their desire to give customers "the choice to look the most moisturized you’ve ever looked one day and the choice to blot out your t-zone the next," which was borderline sacrilege from the evangelists of dewiness.
From that point forward, not even Rihanna could resurrect excessive highlighter as a look that is suitable for the daytime.
No matter how gorgeous Rihanna's Trophy Wife highlighter looks on the hot girls you follow on Twitter, you've gotta admit that if you caught someone rocking it in class or at work you'd consider it a little bit… extra.
Even Kim Kardashian's crème highlighter and contour sets have new powder analogs for a more subdued version of the original, full-face look.
This doesn't mean that you've gotta toss your NARS Multiple in the trash or anything. You might just have to wait for a special occasion to break it out.

Seasons change. Trends come and go. The sun is setting on the era of highlighter, but don't cry- just enjoy how great your makeup looks in the golden hour glow.

She’s serving bawdy all day
by Ari Bines
Before Amber Rose nude pics made headlines, she was making it rain as an exotic dance in the club. Seeing Amber Rose nude is not exactly a new thing seeing as Amber Rose's sexy body has been the former dancer's bread and butter for ages. She's made the one night stand walk of shame a…
Why am I still scared of Hot Topic as an adult?
I’m worried a group of Harry Potter stans are about to hop out and kill me for this one
by Una Dabiero
Call me local, but I love a good mall. There's nothing like rolling up at your local Southridge or Highpoint or Sunset Center or whatever on a mission for a little black dress and completely crushing it. Or going to the mall to waste hours floating between Urban Outfitters and Nordstrom and H&M. Actual paradise…
This is how much it costs to be Gigi Hadid
Living her life is not cheap
by Ari Bines
Whether you know her as the face of Maybelline or her occasional cultural appropriation, Gigi Hadid is one woman who practically owns the runway. She's the fifth highest-paid supermodel in the world, which means she gets a lot of free shit to post to her 40 million followers, but she still coughs up a lot…
