Highlighters are one of the most loved makeup products ever. They enhance and raise the level of your makeup higher. They are also needed when you wish to fake naturally healthy skin. But a little mistake with highlighter can make you look like a disco ball. So, here are some amazing tips and tricks that will help you apply your highlighters flawlessly. Let’s read on to know more.
Moisturize your skin properly
The key step for any makeup to look flawless and perfect is to properly moisturize your face. Use a light but effective moisturizer. This will make your makeup go flawlessly and thus it won’t end up looking patchy. You may try one from THIS list.
Mix liquid highlighters with foundation
Mix your liquid highlighters with your foundation. This trick will give you a subtle glow all over your face. And this will make the highlighter application even and comfortable. We recommend L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator Golden.
Blend powder highlighters with a makeup sponge
A good makeup sponge is extremely effective when it comes to powder highlighters. You can use the flat side to blend the product on large areas like cheeks, face and forehead; use the pointed side for smaller areas. This will give you a flawless finish. Some good options are: Urban Decay Aura Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter and Beauty Blender Sponge.
Check with a flash
Always check your final makeup look under a flashlight before heading out. This will show the real shade and finish of your highlighter. Also, this trick will help you see whether you’ve blended your products well.
Apply liquid highlighters with bare hands
Liquid highlighters are also quite easy to apply and blend. You can easily apply them with your bare hands. The warmth of your fingers will help your highlighter blend easily, thus giving you a flawless finish. This trick works really well if your highlighter tends to set quickly.
Avoid excess layering with liquid highlighters
Layering can lead to makeup disasters with liquid highlighters. Use a lightweight primer, concealer and foundation under liquid highlighters for a smooth finish. Too much layering in this case may lead to patchiness.
Liquid highlighters also need to be set
Don’t forget to set your liquid highlighters with a setting spray. This will prevent your product from creating a mess and keep your highlighter in place all day long. A setting spray will also increase the intensity. Try NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray for a flawless finish.
Fluffy brush for powder highlighters
Powder highlighters can be very stiff and create lines all over your face. Thus, use a good quality fluffy brush for applying and blending them. This will give you the perfectly diffused look and a natural glow. One good option is Anastasia Beverly Hills Highlighter Brush 23.
Complement highlighter with rest of the makeup
And last but not the least, your highlighter must complement the rest of your makeup look. Not every makeup look demands a bold highlighter, so make sure you try and test your makeup looks to find out your best options.
