Highlighters are having their moment this summer and giving us just the right touch to the minimal makeup looks. From the most subtle glow using sticks and balms to the outright sparkle of a compact, there’s sure to be a highlight to suit you.
Highlighters have come a long way in recent years, now there are color options and formulas for all skin tones and tastes. Liquid drops give a “your skin but better” glow, giving light enough coverage that won’t overwhelm your makeup. The most popular formula is the compact powder highlighter. These are the most pigmented and can be worn alone, under or over your makeup.
Unlike contour which adds shadows, highlighting adds dimension on the high points of your face giving a subtle, sculpted effect.
How do you pick the right highlighter for you? Balms and cream sticks have a more skin like finish and are easy to apply. The baked, compact powder formulas that can be applied head to toe and can be built up for an intense glow.
Also, consider the color choices when picking out your perfect highlight. For warmer skin tones, rose gold, peaches, and shades of gold are most flattering. If you have fair skin, soft pinks, champagne, and pearly whites. Highlighters are not a one size fit all, so explore different finishes and formulas.
How to apply your highlighter.
Highlighter is used to bring light to the high points of your face. Apply it right above your cheekbone, the bridge of your nose and brow bone.
When you’re using a stick or balm, blend the highlighter using your fingers for the best effect.
With a powder formula, using a brush will help you control the amount of product you apply.
Going overboard with the highlighter can give you disco ball effects, so start with a small amount and build up as you go.
