So you’re looking for that super-glowy, lit-from-within look that’s trending right now…and you’ve come to the right place. Sure, we all know to dab a little shimmer on our cheekbones, but I’ve got some fresh, new highlighter tips to take your glow to the next level. Now, grab your highlighters and let’s get glowing!
1. ENHANCE YOUR GLOW WITH OIL
If you want ultra dewy and youthful-looking skin, I’ve got THE highlighter tip for you. First, you’ll need to create a base for your highlighter with a face oil (I used this one which smells amazing!) You can also use a rich moisturizer, serum or even vaseline for this. Add this base to wherever you plan on highlighting, either after your foundation or directly to your skin for a more natural look. Then, grab a highlighter brush and highlight away. This hydrated base will give you that beautiful, youthful glow like you see on all the celebs. Not to mention, your glow will last all day long!
2. GET LIPS THAT SHIMMER
Speaking of next level glow, shimmery lips are the next thing you need to try. All you need is your favorite hydrating lip balm (or vaseline) and a highlighter to give the illusion of fuller looking lips . Just don’t use a gloss because it will become a sticky mess! Layer on the balm and gently dab and massage the highlighter onto your lips (don’t forget your cupid’s bow!) For some extra J-lo shine, you can top it off with a layer of clear gloss!
3. USE IT ALL OVER YOUR BODY
I mean when your face is glowing, your whole body should be glowing, right? Adding highlighter to certain parts of your body will play up your bone structure and even make you look thinner. Some of my favorite places to highlight are my collarbones and my shoulders. You can even add highlighter to your shins to give the illusion of longer, more toned legs!
4. MAKE YOUR EYES SPARKLE
A little bit of highlighter around the eyes can really go a long way in bringing your glow full circle. Adding some shimmer to the inner corners of your eyes, the middle of your eyelids, and the brow bone will instantly brighten up the whole eye area and make you look younger and more awake. I love using this trick when I lose out on my beauty sleep!
Always remember to use your highlighter strategically and to never OVER highlight. Disco ball territory ain’t cute! My last tip for you guys would be to pick up a bottle of MAC’s prep and prime finishing mist. I always spray this on my brush before highlighting to really bring out that pigmented glow!
