How To Apply Every Type of Highlighter
Posted on August 08 2017
What’s the secret to a glowing complexion? Highlighter.
The perfect shade can instantly boost dull skin's radiance and immediately accentuate your best facial features by adding dimension. With so many different products and formulas it can be difficult to master the application process, but never fear – we’re here to help.
Check out our tips for applying every type of highlighter like a pro below.
The best part about liquid highlighter is that it’s simple to apply on the go. Our unique and lightweight Liquid Radiance comes in three shades and features a rollerball applicator that glides on quickly and easily, creating a celestial and illuminating highlight. Depending on the intensity you’re going for, you can apply it to your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, above your lip, on your chin, in the inner corner of your eyes, and on your brow bone. An added bonus: You can even mix it with your moisturizer for a subtler look.
The advantage to cream highlighter is that it’s totally versatile – you can apply it with your fingers or with a brush, it blends naturally and seamlessly with your skin, and it has multiple uses. The easiest way to apply cream highlighter – like our Multi Pot in Thistle – is to tap it into the skin with two fingers above and below the brow, on the high points of your cheeks, and on the bridge of your nose for an instant flush of brightness.
The reason to choose powder highlighter is for its dual-purpose design and buildability. Our multi-pigmented Mosaic Illuminator captures light and covers imperfections to give your complexion a luminous beautiful finish – use a Kabuki Brush for maximum impact or a smaller brush for a more opaque look. When applying focus on the high points of your face and blend well using light pressure. As a general guideline, always remember that less is more, as powder can get intense very quickly.
