Highlighter is a great way to add a bit of glow to your makeup. It can be applied to the eyes, cheekbones, and lips for a glowing appearance. The right highlighter can brighten your face, and can also help reduce the look of dark circles. You can choose from cream, powder, and liquid highlighters.
When you are choosing a highlighter, make sure it matches your skin tone. If you have a natural complexion, you may want to choose a highlighter that has a rosy silver or bronze hue. Alternatively, if your complexion is more olive, you can opt for a golden highlighter.
Once you have chosen your shade of highlighter, you should use your fingers to apply it. Use a soft tapping motion to blend it into your face. Make sure you follow your brow bone to create a sweeping effect. Alternatively, you can use a brush. A fluffy brush is great for applying small amounts of highlighter evenly.
If you are using a powder highlighter, you will want to use a fan brush to ensure that you get a smooth application. However, powder highlighters do not work well if you have dry skin. Using a cream or liquid highlighter will give you a more intense sheen. Try mixing a cream or liquid highlighter with a translucent powder to get a more luminous look.
Another way to apply highlighter is to dab it on your cupid’s bow. This area is usually directly under your nose, where the top lip dips down. Generally, you don’t want to apply too much highlighter, because it can look unnatural. Instead, focus on the areas that naturally catch the light. To do this, you can apply it above the apples of your cheeks, around your chin, and down your inner corners.
The final step for a flawless finish is to blend your highlighter with your hands or a makeup sponge. The key to achieving a luminous finish is to blend it in letter ‘C’ shapes. By doing this, you will achieve an even toned, glowing look.
Applying your highlighter is not an easy task, but it is definitely worth the effort. If you have any trouble blending your highlighter, you can always apply more later. Whether you are using a cream, powder, or liquid highlighter, it is important to choose a shade that will match your skin tone.
Highlighter is an essential tool for your makeup bag. It is a great way to add some sparkle to your look, but you should not overdo it. Trying too much highlighting will make your face look like a tin man. If you’re just beginning with highlighter, however, you can start with a lighter shade. Even if you think you will be blending it on your face for hours, you should only apply it in targeted areas.
Whether you are just beginning with a highlighting product or you have years of experience with it, you should try to learn how to use your highlighter. The right highlighter will enhance your features, and you’ll have a radiant, glowing complexion that you’ll be happy to show off.
