What is the Right Way to Apply Highlighter on the Face?
Find your Shade
One basic thing that everyone should keep in mind is that every make-up product has different shades and you have to choose one that is closest to your skin’s complexion. And just like other products, even highlighter comes in different shades. And if you are on the lookout to find your perfect HighlighterShade, watch out for the shades by comparing them with your skin tone and pick one to get seamless coverage and glow.
Pick the Right Applicator
There’s no denying to the fact that for achieving a luminous glow, you need to pick the right shade of highlighter, but the importance of having the right brush or applicator is equivalent. To apply Highlighter perfectly, you need a soft, fluffy, and angular brush that can also be used for the seamless blending of Liquid Foundation.
Prep Your Skin and Apply other Make-up Products
As always, begin with prepping your face for a make-up base. Clean your skin with a facewash and hydrate it well with a moisturizing cream. Make sure your skin is not oily and greasy or else the make-up might not absorb in the skin evenly. After doing skincare, the first step is to apply a Transparent Face Primer to create a smooth canvas for seamless make-up. Now create a strong base for your make-up by applying Foundation, concealer, and blush for setting the right glow. After this, use a compact powder to soak oil from the face and for locking your base products so that they don’t lead to creases.
Begin with Putting Highlighter on the Cheeks
Start with highlighting the most common spot on the face; that is cheekbones. To lift and enhance your cheeks, swipe the highlighter on the apple area and then blend it evenly. You can either use your fingers or a brush to drag the highlighter across each cheek. Make sure to apply the product only in the required amount or else it might make your face look extra shiny and illuminating.
Apply on remaining High Points of the Face
After highlighting the cheek area, repeat the same process around other targeted points like the cupid bow, inner corner of the eyes, brow bone, and more. While focusing on all of these high points avoid swiping the highlighter around T-zone and forehead because it’s naturally oily and doesn’t require any extra shine.
