Highlighting Techniques

Hey everyone!

     I absolutely adore highlighting. I have mentioned it quite a bit in my previous posts, and today I'm going to share my favorite tips and tricks!

My favorite thing to do with a shimmery loose powder is to mix it in with a little foundation! This creates a brightening look all over. If you want to use it all over your face, use a little less of the powder. Remember, you can always add more! I like to apply my foundation first, and then use this technique with any spare product I have left.

I am also obsessed with high beam. I like to put about three dots of this on the top of my cheekbones. The best part about High Beam is the buildable shimmer it. I love to tap a little on my Cupid's bow to make my lips look fuller!

Not only is Smashbox photo op an amazing brightener for under eye circles, it is also the perfect sheer highlighter. I like to use the triangle technique with this. Before you conceal any under eye circles, make a triangle pointing down. Blend this out to light up your face and hide redness! Sorry for the strange picture, but I thought this was the best way to show you what I meant! 

Cream color bases are amazing for the girl on the go. You don't have to mix, blend, or conceal anything, you just use it! I love to use this CCB in pearl in the middle of my eyelid. Not only does this provide a base, but it is a cream product, providing more of a reflection. When the light bounces off of this, it will light up your whole face!

Too face candlelight powder is the perfect color for any skintone. I actually used this as an eyeshadow for a while because the gold reflects in it brought out my blue eyes. Now I like to take a dot of it and apply it to the inner corner of the eye. Your eyes are the key to any expression, you might as well let them shine!

Great post!! I neglect highlighting, simply out of laziness.
