9 Tips For Applying Highlighter

1. Choose The Right Formula

Highlighters are powder, cream, or liquid. Choose a formula for your skin type and desired finish. Powder highlighters shine more than cream or liquid highlighters, which produce a dewy sheen.

2. Apply To Face High Points

Draw attention to your cheekbones, brow bone, nasal bridge, cupid's bow, and the center of your forehead and chin where light naturally hits.

3. Blend, Blend, Blend

For a natural shine, blend the highlighter into your skin. Diffuse the product gently by tapping or sweeping to avoid hard lines.

4. Use A Light Hand

 Start with a small amount of product and build it up gradually. It's easier to add more highlighter than to remove excess.

5. Consider Your Skin Type

To avoid shine, use powder highlighters and a setting spray for oily skin. Apply creams or liquids to dry skin for moisture and brightness.

6. Customize For Different Occasions

Change highlighter intensity by occasion. Use light hands for a delicate daylight appearance. Increase intensity for evening or special occasions.

7. Avoid Textured Areas

Highlighter can enhance textured skin and enlarged pores. Highlight bright regions without texture.

8. Correct Brush Or Applicator

Use a formula-specific brush or sponge. Powders need a fluffy brush, while creams and liquids need fingers, beauty sponges, or hefty brushes.
