Whether you prefer a natural, dewy look or want a highlighter that is shimmering bright and gives you a generous glow - everyone looks good with a glow. A highlighter is a beauty bag must-have. The highlighters you choose depends on what look you’re trying to achieve.
When choosing a highlighter you should pay attention to is its shade depth. This can create completely different effects on different skin tones. A darker highlighter on one person might be a brightening lighter effect on someone else, even if the shades vary between pink and gold.
So, the best way to finding the perfect highlighter shade for any skin tone is to swatch a few highlighters on your arm and then take a photo in black and white. Pick the shade that is almost invisible. That will be the highlighter that will matches your skin tone.
When applying a highlighter, focus on the high points of the face, cheekbones, tip of the nose and inner corner of the eye. This is where they are most effective, use them all year round but the best way to keep a highlighter lasting longer is the apply your foundation and then apply a few dots of moisturiser or liquid highlighter, and then brush over the top the powder highlighter. This will help to set and make it last. Another trick is to use a liquid highlighter under your foundation, this will provide an all over highlighting effect.
