There has never been a beauty look that was complete without using the correct highlighter. Chances are they were wearing highlighter stick; if you've ever seen someone's face light up in the best possible way. To brighten and accentuate the skin's inherent glow and beauty, light-reflecting cosmetic products are a hot trend right now because of their capacity to enhance natural characteristics.
How should one go about using a highlighter effectively?
Beauty professionals agree that the best way to apply cream and liquid highlighters is using a sponge (like a Beauty blender). It is essential to avoid using a sweeping motion while applying makeup since this might cause the makeup to become streaky. Before applying a highlighter stick, it is recommended that you first wet the sponge with water and then use a paper towel to squeeze out any extra moisture. This will provide the best results.
Before applying an entire face of makeup, begin preparing your face as you usually would. It would help if you used moisturizer and primer to support an airbrushed finish. Once you've achieved an even surface, apply your foundation of choice. Note: a liquid foundation's finish is smoother than a powder foundation's. A little darker hue than your own will help frame your face and draw attention to the areas that you want to stand out. Finally, you can use concealer. You may use a moist sponge to apply horizontal dots to your forehead, beneath your eyes, and chin. Following that, the illuminating process will begin.
2. Points to Emphasize
To get a natural glow, focus on the parts of your body that naturally receive the most light. It's easy to lift your cheekbones with a few strokes above and below the arch of your brows. You may get the pixie tip of your dreams by drawing a small line down the bridge of your nose. A little highlighter stick on your cupid's bow, just above your top lip, can give you a more prominent, more voluminous pout. Your lower lip will seem fuller if you use a little product on your chin. With the help of a highlighter, you may make your late nights vanish by placing two little spots in the inner corners of your eyes and the middle of your eyelids.
Highlighter Sticks: Tips and Tricks
A highlighter stick is a great way to do a fast touch-up while on the run. The twist tube makes application a snap, in addition to its incredible compactness. Use a little dusting of translucent powder to set your foundation and contouring once they've dried. The cream-based illuminator will more easily adhere to your skin if you do this. Use the stick to draw attention to the parts of your face you want to emphasize, and then apply the product using your fingers, a soft brush, or even a regular makeup blender. The ‘strobing' technique is a more intense kind of highlighting and is also fantastic with most highlighter sticks.
How should I apply my highlighter—over or beneath my foundation?
Consider your highlighter to be the final touch on the project. Hold off on applying it until the end of your makeup regimen, after you've already put on your blush and foundation. According to Shojaie, "It's the final thing you put to the points of the face, where you want to have that shine or sheen when the light strikes you," and "It's the last thing you apply to the points of the face."
