This week, it is time to talk about beauty, in particular, about the product which is creating the biggest sensation over this last year: the highlighter. Such is its influence, that there is not a single make-up artist or beauty guru who has not incluided it in their tutorials, to the point of becoming a make-up essential.
What is it used for? As its name suggests, its function is to add light to the face and highlight our features. Although it may seem a cosmetic easy to apply, nothing could be further from the truth. If you want to get the perfect red-carpet finish, take note of the following advices:
Firstly, it is important to distinguish the two types of highlighters that exist:
Highlighter-concealer: it is used for refill and project the deep-set areas of the face, such as the dark circles. It is ideal for your daily make-up, as it conceals the signs of tiredness in a very natural way.
Highlighter with pigments: it is used for finishing areas, such as the lacrimal and the cheekbone. Although it is ideal for night out makeups, if you want to use it during the day, do not forget to apply it subtly.
How to apply them? Both of them must be applied after your foundation, preferably with a fan brush by making light movements without touching the skin. In order to get a very natural glow finish, apply the highlighter over the cheekbone, Cupid’s bow in your lip, both lacrimals and below your browbones, Don’t forget this!
