Regardless the age, every woman loves some glow on her skin. After all, it makes us look youthful!!
But not everyone really knows why adding a highlighter can transform the look.
Hence, I’m bringing you this half-done look for you to see the POWER OF HIGHLIGHTER
The purpose of highlighting is to bring forward the areas of your face that go against the natural depths of your face. To make it easy, here’s an example:
When contouring your nose, you contour the sides of your nose and to make the impact stronger and make your nose look slimmer, you highlight the bridge of your nose. The same goes with contouring your face, you push the depths of your face further in while bringing out the cheek bones, this is done to structure the face properly.
There are two types of highlighter. One is done with matte products whereas the other (the type you can see in the picture above) is done using products with shimmer and sheen. Highlighting can be done with liquid, cream or powder products. Of course the most LOVED type of highlighting is with shimmer powders and that is exactly what I have done to show you guys! 😍
Here’s exactly where you should highlight 🎇
- Cheek bones
- Bridge of your nose
- Cupid’s bow
- forehead, right above the beginning of your brows (very little though)
- Centre of your chin (again, ever so slightly)
Pick up the product on a fan brush, tap off the excess and place the brush on the area where you are highlighting and without lifting the brush, move it back and forth to get the perfect payoff
