When it comes to make-up, The Only Way Is Essex's Megan McKenna rarely ever gets wrong - she is the UK's contour queen, after all...

...but one of her latest selfies has caused a bit of a stir on Instagram, with fans, followers and beauty-obsessives alike commenting on her highlighting skills - and opinion is seriously divided regarding the ultra glowy vibe!

Over the Bank Holiday weekend, Megan (Reveal's brand new columnist!) decided to jump on the strobing bandwagon a la Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid and more or less every beauty blogger out there, by adding a heavy dusting of highlighter to her look.

And she really went to town!

Like a total pro, Megan - who shared a rare bare-faced selfie on Monday (29 August) - paid attention to her nose for a cutesy button effect, her Cupid's bow to make her plump lips pop and her brow bone, too - but some of her followers weren't sold.

Taking the the comments section, a handful mentioned that the star - who posed for the picture against a bright light - looked "too shiny" and even "greasy."

There's no holding back, is there?

"Too much highlighter on the end of your schnoz!" wrote one Insta-user, while another said, "May be just a little over the top with the highlighter."


Of course, it wasn't long before Megan's fans defended her ultra-radiant beauty look (which we're loving, FYI - long live the shimmer!) and many mentioned that they only ever take inspiration from the brunette babe herself.

"Highlight poppin!" wrote one underneath the EOTB star's picture, while another said, "Always my inspo. Highlighter on point girl."

Megan captioned her snap, which has racked up a huge 23.9K likes (and counting), "Halo lampin it up...," and took no notice of those who tried to dull her lit-from-within vibe.

Atta girl. Now, er, can we please have a rummage through your make-up arsenal...?
