How to use Highlighter for makeup the right way?
To add in some pop of color and glowing g shine on your face, a highlighter is a must-have. Its application on the bridge of the nose, below the arch of the eyebrows, the forehead, the temples of the cheek, and the cupid’s bow is what makes one appear brighter in their complexion from a dull face and that is the magic of a highlighter.
Method Number 01:
One method to apply a highlighter is by using a makeup sponge called a beauty blender. It is a sponge in a tear shape that had a soft but pointed edge which makes the application of any product on even the most unreachable part of the face easier, such as the inner corners of the eyes.
Using a cream based or a liquid-based highlighter in this process is more highly recommended than powdered highlighters. One must have to make sure to keep dabbing or pressing the highlighter into the skin in order to blend it well instead of rubbing it in the skin as it might give harsh strokes and lines on the face that will ruin the rest of the makeup.
Method Number 02:
When it comes to powdered highlighters, using a light fan-like brush or even a fluffy soft brush is what is needed. By taking some amount of the highlighter on the brush, one must go in stroking or rather a sweeping motion over the high points of the face.
One has to be gentle while doing this since rubbing or stroking harshly will definitely ruin the rest of your makeup and cause all of your hardworking and effort to go in vain.
Method Number 03

This helps to achieve an even and glowy and even plump-looking skin.
