Highlighting powders and sticks are a big beauty trend on the runway and in celebrity style right now. Given all of the talk about highlighting, we decided that we would share with you the best highlighters and how to use them to look amazing.
What you need: Your highlighting powder or stick must have both very sheer and subtle glitter particles. The more natural and micro the sparkles are, the better.
One of my absolute favorite highlighting products for all ages is celebrity makeup artist, Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow! This magical product comes in two shades for both light and dark skin.
Film Star Bronze and Glow’s purpose is to enhance the cheek bone and give an illusion of facial slimming, healthy glow and a youthful lift. It really does work! It can be worn alone or over a liquid foundation for a more finished and flawless look.
Another one of my favorites is Josie Maran Argan Enlightenment Illuminizer. This organic product is infused with Argan oil to hydrate and nourish the skin. I love this product because it is lightweight and simple to use. This product is great to leave you looking radiant and uplifted. It is magical to distort the light so that all of the wrinkles disappear and you look younger and well rested. Use this with a brush on your cheeks, lips and eyes or add a touch to your foundation for a fully radiant glow.
For another all natural alternative without any lack of performance, RMS Beauty Living Luminizer is awesome. RMS is another cosmetic line that is all organic and good for your skin. You’ll love the way this feels on your skin and how radiant you’ll look. The Living Luminizer is the star product in this amazing line. Use this directly on your check bones, in the middle of your lips, in the tear ducts of your eyes and a little bit in the center of your lid to look young and fresh all day.
Tips and tricks to applying highlighter
The top of your cheek bone is where light will naturally capture the contour of your cheek. Start by applying the highlighter with a sculpting brush from the highest point of your cheek bone on an angle up directly below your temple in one stroke. Less is more, this product will highlight your face your entire day.
You can also use highlighter to enhance underneath your brow to open up, lift and brighten the eye. Use a small sized eyeshadow brush and apply highlighter from the inner corner of the brow to the end of the brow line in one swipe.
My third tip is to put a little highlighter on your cupid’s bow in the middle of the v of your lips to create the illusion fuller lips.
Start highlighting and accentuating your natural beauty. You deserve it.
