Hi all my lovelies..
Highlighter is a makeup product that can completely change your beauty look. If applied correctly, it gives you glowing look where people can’t place what’s different, just that you look amazing.
When you are choosing a highlighter you have to think about your skin tone. If you have cool undertone (If your vein colour is purple that means you are cool undertone) skin, pink toned highlighters are going to stick out, if you have very pale skin pink tones are perfect.
The goal when applying highlighter is to get a reflective dewy look that makes you look like you just moisturized your skin. You don’t want to be shiny or glittery, so try some on the back of your hand when you’re at the store and blend well. If the product gives your skin a slight sheen you’ve got it right, if you look covered in glitter try again.
How to Apply Highlighter
There are three main areas you should apply highlighter the cheekbones and temples, the eyes, and the Cupid’s bow.
If you apply your foundation with a foundation brush , use that same brush to apply your highlighter. The product remaining on the brush will help with the blending process. When applying it to your cheeks, blend it on the highest point of your cheekbone and up towards your temple.
This is especially important if you’re doing any contouring as it will draw attention away from the makeup-made shadows. When applying it to your eyes, blend it underneath the eyebrow on the brow bone and into the inner crease. The lightness on the inner crease will open up your eyes and the brow bone
When applying it to your eyes, blend it underneath the eyebrow on the brow bone and into the inner crease. The lightness on the inner crease will open up your eyes and the brow bone contouring will give you a brow lift effect.
Applying highlighter to your lips is less common but it will attract more attention. Before applying your lipstick, blend some highlighter in the Cupid’s bow and underneath the bottom lip. Once you’ve applied your lip colour, only a touch of the highlighter will show through, giving your lipstick a multi-dimensional colour effect.
You can also apply it to the bridge of the nose if it’s one of your favourite features but be careful not to apply it all the way to the tip as you’ll look shiny rather than contoured.
Don’t try to use highlighter for coverage, especially for areas of pigmentation or redness. The shimmering tones will only serve to draw attention to the area. Some concealers have light-reflecting properties in them but they should be used sparingly outside the eye area.
You should always match the texture of your highlighter to your base, so if you’re wearing liquid or cream foundation, opt for a creamy highlighter that you can blend well into the skin.
If you want to use a powder highlighter, put a thin layer of translucent powder on over your foundation. You want your highlighter to really blend with your foundation. If you blend your makeup into one thin layer, it will look like your skin is naturally glowing.
So this was all about Highlighter.. Its pretty easy to apply and if applied well it gives a glow to the face and its looks makes your face more attractive.
