A. Hi Lovely! If you’re reading this, odds are you want to know more about what highlighter is and how it works. You’ve come to the right place, as we consider ourselves highlighter experts! As cheek highlighter is a light-reflecting product, its job is to give your cheekbones a lift while giving your skin a little shimmer and shine. Face highlighter is available in cream, liquid, and pressed highlighter powder, and no matter which you choose, you’ll love your new look. If you’re looking to get that glowing, dewy skin, a luminous highlighter palette is a step in the right direction!
A. If you’re searching for the best highlighter, the first thing you should take into consideration is your skin tone. All skin tones are beautiful, and there are certain colors that will bring out the beauty of your skin even more. If you choose good highlighters in a shade that matches your skin, you’re sure to illuminate the room as soon as you walk through the door! Wow, that even rhymed! The best highlighter makeup complements the natural glow that you already possess. Typically, the best highlighter palettes will include a few different shimmer colors, such as gold highlighter or iridescent highlighter like our duo-chrome Mother Earth highlighter, and if you know your undertone, it should be easy for you to match and achieve your glow goals. However, if you’re new to makeup and want to find the perfect dewy makeup look for your skin, you can always get matched by a professional or take a skin tone quiz online before you begin!
A. While the main purpose of highlighter is to highlight cheekbones, highlighter powder can also be used to highlight many other places on your gorgeous face. Some highlight kits will even come with specific highlighters for your cheekbone highlight, your brow highlight, and even your nose highlight. If you’re looking for the best highlighter kit, check out our On The Glow Highlighter Pro Palette! There are 7 main places on your face to be focused on with your highlighter powder no matter if you use matte highlighter, luminous highlighter, or dewy highlighter. These facial features include: the cheekbones, the tip or bridge of your nose, above the cupid’s bow, beneath the arch of your eyebrows, above the arch of your eyebrows, the center of your forehead, and the center of your chin. While this can seem overwhelming, your luminous makeup look will be SO worth it! If you still need a little help perfecting your highlighter glow up, there are many makeup tutorials out there made just for you!
A. If you’re using cream highlighter or liquid highlighter, we definitely recommend putting it on before your foundation. However, if you’re using a highlighter in the form of pressed powder, it’s typically better to sweep some of the highlighter across your features using a highlighter brush. Make sure to use a good highlighter makeup brush so you will create the best highlighter look you can! Remember, the best highlighter brush for each facial feature can be different. For instance, we recommend using a smaller, more defined brush for the bridge of your nose and a larger, fluffy brush for your cheeks. If you’re in need of a new highlighter brush, or if you’re looking for a perfect “sunset shimmer” or that carefree “vacay glow” look to go with you on all of your summer adventures, our highlighters have the perfect glow recipe to keep you shimmering all summer long!
