Highlighting, not the neon kind (we know it’s finals time for many of you), is a crucial part of contouring and shading.
Highlighters should be close to the color of your skin with some shine. Those with lighter skin tones should go for pearly shades while those with darker tones should use warm, golden shades. It is meant to bring light back into your face, but don’t go overboard. The goal is for it to look like natural lighting.
Did you know that in a time of need your lip gloss can be used as a highlighter?
The color of the gloss depends on your skin tone but a pearly gloss is the one to use. Apply a small amount on your brow bones and cheekbones and blend. This is perfect for quick touch-ups.
