How to Choose the Right Highlighter 

Skin Undertone

Buy highlighter that brightens up your skin tone. Always choose a shade that’s one or two shades lighter than your skin tone. Once you learn how to know your undertone and skin tone, it becomes easy to select a highlighter shade. Pink, pearl, and silver shades go very well with a cool undertone, whereas golden, champagne or brown highlighter shades are perfect for warm undertones.

Occasion and Outfit

Similar to eyeshadow and lipstick, the shade of your face highlighter depends on the occasion and your outfit. Along with this, the time of the day also helps decide the shade and coverage of highlighter. Go for heavy glow highlighter makeup for an evening function and a subtle look when there is natural sunlight. Sun gives a vibrant glow to your highlighted face.

How to Apply Glow Highlighter Makeup

Step 1: Do your base makeup, which includes moisturizing your face and applying makeup primer, foundation, and concealer for a smooth finish. 

Step 2: Use a highlighter and blush palette and select the right shade based on the occasion and your outfit.

Step 3: Apply the highlighter using a brush or fingers on the mounted parts of your face – nose, cheekbone, forehead, cupid bow, brow bone, etc.

Depending on the area you want to apply and the amount of radiance and glow you want, you can follow certain tips to apply a face highlighter:

Tip 1: Use fingertips to apply highlighter for maximum coverage and better pigment glow.

Tip 2: For a sheer look, use a cheek or fan brush to apply highlighter on your cheeks.

Tip 3: For a natural glow and luminous shine, apply foundation over face highlighter.

These tips, along with highlighter hacks - where to apply for a dewy fresh-faced look, will help you achieve a glowing radiance that shines bright.

Different Uses of Professional Highlighter Palette

When following sweat proof makeup tips to beat humidity, understanding the versatile use of highlighter can help you elevate your look. When the sun hits the highlighted body parts, it gives a glowing radiance and a gold look to die for. Here are different uses of a professional highlighter palette.

Chiseled Collarbone

Draw attention to your beautiful collarbones by using a fan brush to apply light dust on your face highlighter. This trick creates a subtle definition for a chiseled look and adds a touch of glamour, especially for off-shoulder dresses and deep-neck attire.

Leg Up on Shine

Highlighter hacks can be your best friend for those toned legs you've been working hard on. Apply a liquid highlighter down the center of your shins or mix a powder highlighter with a moisturizer. Blend upwards for a sculpted, elongated look. The trick is perfect for showing off those summer dresses.

Décolletage Delight

Don't let your decolletage miss out on the glow. Use a soft brush to apply a light touch of highlighter and contour the area. Create a subtle shimmer that complements your face makeup using the contour palette and face highlighter.

Cupid's Bow Boost

While highlighter is commonly used on the cheekbones, don't forget your cupid's bow! A touch of highlighter on the center of your upper lip after applying your matte lipstick plumps it up visually and adds a touch of dewiness.

Eyelid Enhance

Highlighters can be a fantastic substitute for your shimmer eyeshadow palette. Apply a tiny amount to your eyelids after your basic eyeshadow for a more fun, vibrant, and long lasting look.

Pro Tip: Remember, when using face highlighter, moderation is key. A subtle shimmer adds dimension, while too much can look greasy and over the top. Go for a light hand and blend well for a natural, radiant finish.

Additional Highlighting Hacks:

  • Prime Time: Apply a primer before your highlighter, especially on areas prone to oiliness, to ensure it stays put and blends smoothly.
  • Brush it Off: Use the right brush for the job! A fan brush works well for larger areas like legs, while a smaller, tapered brush is ideal for precise application on the collarbone or cupid's bow.
  • Set it Right: After applying highlighter, lightly dust the area with translucent setting powder to lock it in place and prevent creasing.
