Makeup Tip {How to Apply Highlighter}


there's something about a little bit of highlighter that just gives your skin an amazing glow. i love using highlighters and feel it gives my skin that extra lustre it needs. applying highlighter is simple and quick, just follow these steps:

#1: apply a cream highlighter to the top of your cheekbone with your middle finger (i like to use MAC's cream colour base). begin by placing highlighter on your cheekbone directly below your eye and slowly blend to the outer edge of your eye bone, making a crescent shape.

#2: next, apply highlighter to your brow bone, right below your arch. blend in a tapping motion so as not to remove product by rubbing. this area of your brow catches light which helps to make eyes appear larger.

#3: take a small amount of highlighter and dot onto your Cupid's bow (the skin right above the peaks of your upper lip). this helps to make your lips appear plumper.

#4: to ensure the highlighter stays put, finish with a translucent powder applied with a fluffy brush. this will lock the shimmer in place for hours.

now, go out and show off your perfectly luminous face.
