Highlighter is a perfect product to add a fresh, glowing finish to your skin. I love applying it in the summertime to enhance my tan. Here are three ways to achieve a summer glow with your favourite highlighter.
1. Apply your highlighter with the right tools
Highlight formulas are typically cream-based, powder-based or liquid. Each formula should be applied with a different tool to achieve a luminous finish. If you’re using a cream formula, it is best to warm the product with your fingertips then apply. Powder formulas apply smoothly with a fluffy or fan brush. If you have a liquid formula, press it into the skin with a damp beauty blender.
2. Apply your highlight strategically
Dab highlighter to your cheekbones, Cupid’s bow, and brow bone to achieve a highlight that will catch the light. If you don’t have your favourite highlight on hand, a dab of coconut oil applied to those places will do the trick!
3. Use powder to counteract too much shine
Getting glitter-happy with your favourite highlighter happens to all of us. To tone-down an abundance of highlighter, dust contour powder over your highlighter for a subtle glow. Alternatively, you can also dust a dry brush across the skin after applying highlighter.
