There’s nothing we love more than a beauty product that can pull double duty — except for a product that can work even harder than that. Highlighter is one of those wonderful gems, there for us when we need it in practically every capacity. Working to give you a glow and make you look more awake, highlighter is a wonderful way to infuse a little bit of life into your look. *Apply highlighter just under your brow bone, but above the crease in your eyelid, to give the illusion of larger eyes.
*If you’re going for glowing skin — as opposed to a slightly more contoured look — apply a small dot of highlighter in the center of the apple of your cheek over blush.
*Bridge of the nose: This works especially well if you’re working to contour your nose a bit. Apply highlighter along the bridge of your nose and gently blend foundation a shade or two darker than your natural skin tone on the sides to make your nose appear to be slimm.
*Inner corner of the eye: The oldest trick in the book for looking awake when you’re working on three hours of sleep? Add just a pinch of highlighter to the inner corner of your eyes to brighten up an otherwise dark areas.
*Diagonal along the cheekbone: For a bit of definition in your cheekbones, apply highlighter in a diagonal line from just beneath the center of your eye socket up towards your hairline, and blend.
*Cupid’s Bow: Give your lipstick a really clean look by applying highlighter on your cupid’s bow using a concealer brush.
*Center of your eyelid: Just a touch of highlighter in the center of your eyelid will simultaneously make your eyes look bigger and more awake. Win-win!
*Mix it with your moisturizer: Mix a liquid highlighter with your moisturizer for an all over glow across your entire face.
