How to Use a Highlighter to Enhance Your Face?

The highlighter is a two-edged sword: learning how to use it properly helps you to add three-dimensionality to the face and enhance the features; nevertheless, knowing where to apply it is crucial to avoid the shiny skin effect.

The browbone, high cheekbones, nose bridge, and cupid’s bow are the best areas for applying highlighter. Pay attention to the forehead when you put the make-up on, especially if you have oily skin. While a touch of highlighter on the lower lip before applying pencil and lipstick will make the lips look exceptionally voluminous and seductive.

Aside from these general guidelines, it is essential to consider the shape of your face and avoid lighting (and so highlighting) certain areas of the face.
