I’m simple Sally when it comes to makeup, but highlighters are my shit.Nothing is sexier to me than a dewy, bronzed beauty. Highlighting is an essential step in my morning regimen. I sincerely believe women are Goddesses, and are supposed to shimmer. The right highlight will have you feeling Royal, the trick is to find it. I’ve been on a mission to put the best options for your 2017 summer glow together in one post. So once you finish you should be knowledgeable on how to apply & where to buy the best.
Step one to achieving the perfect glow, is to knowing where to place it. A highlighter’s purpose is to brighten areas of the face. Begin by adding a stoke in all areas you want to emphasize like your brow bone, bridge of your nose, cheek bones and cupid’s bow- right above your lips. You can opt for a powder or cream product, depending on your desired look, and then proceed to get your shine on Sis.
A note on brushes; you may need more than one size depending on where your planning to place your shimmer.
I’ve learned from trial and error and from chatting with my handful of MUA friends a few tips for matching highlighter hues to your skin tone.
Fair skin tones will glisten with iridescent whites, pinks & champagnes. ‘
Olive/medium skin tones like me will glow when a peach/coral or gold shimmer is applied.
Queens with darker complexions will radiate under rich rose & warm golds.
