This week on my makeup desk are my favourite makeup product, highlighters. I love changing up my makeup look with different highlighters techniques. Who knew there was so may different ways to highlight. I certainly didn’t when I was a beginner. Like most makeup lovers, I am obsessed with highlighters. Highlighters are so on trend at the moment and I can’t see them leaving us anytime soon. If you only ever used the traditional powder highlight fear no more I am here to teach you ways to use different highlighters.
I love this consistency of a highlighter Why ? Because there are so many ways to use liquid highlighters. Feeling a little dewy, mix a small amount of liquid with your primer or foundation and apply as normal to give your face that desired glow and dewiness. For a more positioned highlight apply it before your foundation wear you want a glow. Top of your cheek bones, nose and cupids bow. For a more intense highlight apply over top of your foundation and gently buff out. I like to use my fingers as the warmth helps blend into the skin. Listed below are my go to liquid highlighters.
A stick formula that has a punch, my absolute favourite cream highlighter is the Benefit Watts up. Just like the liquid formulas you can use it in so many ways and it can be applied anywhere. I love using under my foundation on those high points and then going over top of my foundation and blending out. If you going to an intense glow use over top of your liquid. Listed below are my cream favourites.
The most popular highlighter formula is powder highlighters. Can be used alone to create an everyday glow, used over top of the cream or liquid highlighters to really give you that intense on point highlight or used as an eyeshadow. I am loving the MUA Highlighter, the detailing is stunning for a start and the price point is so affordable. I like to apply my powder highlight with a small fan brush on the top of my cheek bones, top of eyebrows, brow bone, cupids bow, and tip of nose I love to glow everywhere.
