Welcome back my lovelies to another Sunday, and another skincare posting. We have gotten to the highlighting stage of your makeup, if you choose to get this far. I can’t stress this enough…makeup should only be worn for you. Not to impress anyone else. It should make you feel good, but not be something to hide behind.
Now with that said, if you wish to wear a full face of makeup, at some time during a tutorial you will hear about highlight. But what is highlight?
A highlighter is a product that can be used to enhance the focal points of the face. It draws attention to your face and gives it that magical touch. It’s main goal it to “highlight” the beauty of you.
With any product, less is more. Remember you can always add more, it’s not as easy to take it away. You really only want to put this product on the areas of your face that would normally reflect a little glow. Above your brows, the middle of your forehead, top of the cheekbones, your cupid’s bow, and a little on the top and tip of the nose. Where the light would normally touch your face.
There are currently a lot of products that can be used for highlighter, but you are wanting to use one that has good pigmentation, and shimmer. Something matte is not going to be a highlight, it will dullen the area.
The best way to find the right highlight look is to play with shades, locations, and brushes. Yes, the brush does matter.
Remember you are beautiful just the way you are, and if you add make up, it should enhance the uniqueness that is you. Don’t hide behind a mask.
Be strong, be beautiful, be you
