I absolutely adore using highlighters in my makeup. It gives the skin a glow, and it adds dimension and structure to a face which has lost some of it’s structure due to a full face of foundation. The complexion looks bright, healthy and fresh.
There are lots of ways to apply highlight, however I have a foolproof way of applying highlighter so that it always looks fresh and natural. Too much highlighter can you make you look like you’re made of plastic, too little can look out of place.
This is where you should apply your highlighter – a dab on the cupids bow and on the bridge of the nose, a touch along the cheekbone and brow bone, and a smidge on the top of the forehead. Next, blend it thoroughly, so there are no hard lines or edges. You’ll be left with a very natural, luminous and bright complexion.
