The 5 Most Googled Questions About Highlighter
Q1. How Do I Apply Highlighter to My Face?
To apply highlighter, you should start by using a small amount of product. Lightly apply it in all the places where light would naturally hit your face such as the bridge of your nose, the forehead, the tip of your chin and the top of your cheekbones. You can also use it to define and emphasise certain areas such as below the brow bone, on your cupid’s bow or on the inner eye.
Q2. What Should I Use to Apply Highlighter?
There are plenty of ways to apply highlighter, but there are two particular types of brushes which work best. For larger areas such as the cheeks and forehead, you should opt for a fan brush. For smaller areas such as the cupid’s bow, below the brow and the nose, a fluffy eyeshadow brush is the best option.
