Every girl knows makeup essentials: the translucent foundation, a little amount of blush and finishing powder. But recently a new revolutionary item was added to this list. Meet the genius innovation of the 21st Century that helps you whether you are seeking that easy, casual look that makes you a stand-out OR… maybe you are seeking that glamorous, gala party look that speaks ultimate beauty – the runway, the Academy Award Red Carpet! Believe it or not this beauty product will make you look totally different. It will add irresistible glow to your skin, brighten up your eyes and finally will give you that needed amount of dewiness and freshness to your face.
Using the highlighter is the best way to sculpt perfect cheek-bones and make your nose look thinner. The main goal in using this beauty item is to achieve that reflectively dewy look like you just moisturized your skin.
There’s one simple trick you need to know in choosing the right highlighter. Place a small amount of it at the back of your hand and then check if the product gives your skin a slight sheen. If it does, you’ve got it right, but if you look like you’re covered in glitter, if it makes you look kinda pasty, just try again and go lighter this time! The next thing you need to note while you are at the cosmetics counter is how to properly apply pearl particles. To check to see if you have the right amount and size particles apply, then take a look at your hand with a good light cast on the area where you applied the particles to give the experience of bright sun on your skin. For best results the smaller the particles the more glowing your skin will be.
Your cosmetic bag is starting to bulge with all the great products you’ve purchased. Now it’s time to learn some great techniques on how to apply these extraordinary products to give you the absolute best results. Lucky you! Here’s a step-by-step guide that teaches you the inside tricks of contouring your face and highlighting all your great assets – eyes, cheekbones while downplaying or redoing those things you consider your beauty liabilities e.g. maybe a nose. It can be as easy as using a highlighter (among the many simple, easy to use products you have purchased!)
You can apply it with a finger, a foundation brush, a cosmetic sponge or if it comes in a stick form, then simply draw in the indicated areas with the highlighter stick.
Where to Apply Highlighter
There are three main areas to use it: cheekbones, eyes and Cupid’s bow.
It’s really important to know your face shape. Knowing this you’ll emphasize the proper lines to achieve the best results. You can discover your face shape after a great amount of online tests but better just ask one of the department store makeup experts to be sure you’re going in the right direction.
Once you read these initial rules take you highlighter and start to apply it with the following instructions
Step 1 Foundation
Use your usual foundation to create a smooth surface for the further makeup steps. Your goal here is to have a terrific “basic skin” that is as close to perfect BEFORE any other preparations are applied. Your skin should be plain, smooth and sleek after applying the foundation. Do your best at this stage of the process.
After applying your usual makeup foundation use a foundation which is a shade or two lighter than the one you’ve used before. Take a small brush and apply highlighter on the upper part of your cheek bones (not too much), then cover the outer edge of your nose. Make sure you’re doing it uniformly for both sides of your face.
Step 2 Counturing & Highlighting
Countour the features you want to accent. Swipe a little highlighter down the bridge of the your nose to accentuate the middle of your face. Add a little to the cupid’s bow area right above you lips to make them fuller and more passionate. Banish under-eye circles with a bronzer, then add a glimmering product to create a romantic blush on your cheeks. To reach a totally sun-touched look add a drop of highlighter to the center of your forehead. Wow! How exciting to see the transformation!

Now you’re ready to start a new day looking absolutely beautiful and in a totally positive frame of mind. It’s your day whether it’s about business or heading off to a white-tie event in the evening or a crazy-rocking party. Be confident and enjoy your beautiful look!
