Learn how to use make up highlighter with this easy tutorial

Most women know the beauty basics: primer, foundation, blush and finishing powder, to name a few. But make up highlighter is not a term that every woman uses in her daily vocabulary, and it most certainly is not something you will find in every cosmetics bag. Believe it or not, highlighter is a product that can completely change your look. It helps add a glow to your skin, can give you just the right amount of dewiness, and it can also brighten up your eyes for starters. And did you know the using a make up highlighter is also a great way to sculpt your cheeks and give you a slimmer nose? Read How To Contour Your Face for a step by step guide that will teach you the inside tricks of properly contouring your face using a highlighter, among other simple products.

The three main areas that you should apply make up highlighter to include the cheekbones and temples, the eyes and the Cupid bow (the area on your upper lip). When applying to cheeks, blend highlighter on the highest point of the cheekbones, up towards the temple. For eyes, blend highlighter underneath the eyebrow on the brow bone and into the inner crease. And when applying to the Cupid bow, just put on a light dab and add a touch underneath the bottom lip as well. You can apply highlighter with a foundation brush, your finger, a cosmetic sponge or if the highlighter comes in a stick form, then simply draw in the indicated areas with the stick.
