Applying a makeup highlighter can offer your skin a beautiful colour boost and improve your bone structure too. A makeup highlighter only takes several minutes to apply because it is applied to only a few small parts of the face. However, with a few wipes of highlighter, you can brighten up your whole face. Even if you are a beginner in makeup application, learning to use a highlighter as your day to day makeup is easy.
What is a makeup highlighter?
A highlighter is a product that totally changes your splendour look. If applied rightly, it offers you that shimmering look where people cannot know what is different, just that you look beautiful. When looking for the best highlighter, think about the skin tone first; if you have very pale skin, the pink toned highlighters are going to withstand, but if your skin is too sallow the ideal highlighters for you are pink toned ones.
How to apply makeup highlighter?
Fingers: Many people swear by their fingers while applying the foundation while others would never daydream about it! You can easily apply a stick highlighter straight to your face. You can also stroke the stick on your fingers and tap along the needed area of your face to highlight.
Brushes: The most qualified makeup artists use at least one makeup brush to apply the foundation. With numerous brushes to select from there is something for everybody. Keep in mind: bristles must be synthetic for cream-based or liquid products. When properly utilised, a brush is one of the quickest methods to apply foundation. A brush mixes the foundation flawlessly offering your skin a smooth, airbrushed finish. They are best for getting into unreachable crannies and nooks.
Makeup higlighter – the golden rules
There are three key areas where a highlighter is applied as a day makeup: the eyes, cheekbones, temples and the Cupid’s bow. If you apply the foundation with a brush, use that same brush when applying your highlighter. The remaining product on your brush will assist with the process of blending.
Makeup highligher on the nose
The nose is a challenging spot for most women makeup. A great contour is nothing with no highlighting! You should make a stripe of light colour down your nose, beginning from between your brows down to the nose tip. Keep the line symmetrical and steady, but be free to play with your nose width.
Makeup highligher on the eyes and brows
In eye makeup application, blend it beneath your eyebrows on the brow bone and into the interior wrinkle. The lightness on the inside crease will open up the eyes and your brow bone to have a fantastic eye makeup.
Makeup highligher on the Cupid’s bow
When highlighting your lips begin by applying the section above your upper lip (Cupid’s bow). A cream highlighter is much easier to blend – powders seem to sort of sit on the surface of the skin. Highlighters are best known for day makeup due to their amazing ability to light areas of the skin, so apply it over so faintly into the upper part of the lip and V part of the skin. And in the end, apply the lipstick gloss of your liking.
Makeup highligher on the cheekbones
When applying to the cheeks mix it on the highest area of your cheekbones and upward to your temples. This is particularly significant if you are doing any contouring as it draws attention away from the shadows made by the eye makeup.
Makeup highligher on the chin
For a smaller, thin chin, apply your highlighter to the middle of the chin, directly under the centre of the lip. To curtail a double chin, use a darker foundation shade (not so dark) alongside the jaw line and mix it down, to your neck. This generates depth and assists to strengthen your jaw line and make your day makeup great.
