Everything you need to know about highlighting, from a sheer, second-skin dewy balm to a more statement shimmer, discover all the tips and tricks to really pop those high points and faux your glow.
Glowing skin is always in, while having a great skincare routine will help your natural glow, sometimes we need a little extra. And, that’s where highlighter makeup can make all the difference to your look. Highlighting is all about mimicking the way that natural light catches and reflects off our bone structure, effectively popping those points and adding definition with a splash of brightening. If you’re unsure where to put highlighter on your face, just use your bone structure as a guide.
Trace your highlighter along the top of your cheekbones, brow bones, down the center of your nose to the tip, on your lip bow, and in the center of your chin and forehead. Make sure to blend the highlighter well. You can also pair your highlighting with contouring too for a more sculpted, defined look. Depending on the type of effect you want to create, for a more dewy, sheer, natural highlighting effect, a highlighting balm will be your go-to. For a more shimmer-intense, statement highlighter, try a shimmer brick, pressed powder. Illuminating, buildable, and in a variety of hues, powder highlighters give a soft-focus effect for a luminosity and light that’s photo-ready. All our highlighters are powered by skincare ingredients, contain only ethically sourced, eco-friendly mica, and are talc-free and mineral-based, so they’re suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.
