where to apply highlighter?

how to apply highlighter

Soap and glory glow all out review swatch photo

Highlighter is just the one isn’t it? Giving the face a little light reflecting help in the summer is one of my favourite ways to cheat a shapely face and give you that model inner glow. Obviously we all know we should add highlighter on the tops of our cheeks but where else can you apply it?

I like to use it to natural emphasise where the sun naturally hits my face. Pop a bit of highlighter on your forehead, the sun natural hits that area and gives that inner glow. If you have oily skin try not to use a creamy product here,  your T-Zone is already prone to shine.

Follow up with a light sweep of the shimmery stuff highlighter underneath your brow arches to lift the face. It'll emphasise the shape and distract from any pesky stray hairs. To finish swipe down the nose and pop a little on both your cupids bow and chin to really bring out facial features.

My recommendations for highlighters to try? I love the Soap And Glory Glow all Out and Nars Albatross. But my personal favourite Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder - super finely milled pinky toned powder which gives the face that extra little summit summit.
