Highlighter is a product that can completely change your look. If applied correctly to suit your skin tone, it gives you that glowing look where people can’t place what’s different, just that you look like a glowing mermaid! When you’re choosing a highlighter you have to think about your skin tone & skin type; The goal when applying highlighter is to get a reflective dewy look that makes you look like you just moisturised your skin.
Apply a powder only on the high parts of the cheekbones and the inner corners of the eyes. Avoid highlighter on the apples of the cheeks, as this can be textured or have larger pores, as highlighters will emphasise them. Check out Strobe & Glow Highlighting kits, available in two shades.
For those that have oily skin, the key to getting a gorgeous, glow is to keep shine in check. A good mattifying primer is crucial. Apply it to any areas where you tend to get shiny throughout the day. We recommend Matte Perfect Primer for all-day oil control.
Powder highlighters are perfect for oily skin. Placement is key when it comes to accentuating the complexion with a glow. Apply them only to the high points of the face–the tops of the cheekbones, cupid’s bow and a tiny bit on the bridge of the nose. This will attract light to the face in all the right areas, giving you that radiant finish. We can’t get enough ofUndress Your Skin Powder highlighters, available in four shades.
If you have sensitive or acne prone skin choose formulas that will help, not irritate, your skin. A liquid or powder highlighter works well, because it won’t clog pores or highlight texture issues. We love applying Undress Your Skin Illuminating Liquid Glow to the high part of cheekbones & across the eyelids to brighten eyes instantly.
Finally the key thing to remember if your skin is red choose the right undertone. Use Neutral gold tones for acne-prone/sensitive skin, pinks tend to accentuate redness. Shade “Champagne”from the Radiant Glow range is the perfect shade!
For those blessed with normal skin so you want to show of that beautiful skin and give it a more dewy finish, use an Highlighting Shimmer is key! Available in one shade that suits most skin tones to help accentuate and define your complexion. The creamy formulation is easily blendable – wear alone or apply over your foundation to achieve a subtle and glamorous gleam of light gold.
To apply any of the cream highlighters, using clean fingers, pat the colour over the apples of the cheeks. Undress Your Skin Powder Highlighters are great to layer over either a liquid or cream highlighting product, but use this last. Apply withf16 brush focusing on the areas you applied the highlighting shimmer stick.
