How to Highlight Face With Makeup – Highlighting Tutorial Video

Today I’m here to show you how I highlight my face. Thanks for liking my last video on contouring.

Proper highlighting makes you look glowing, awake and illuminated. There are many types of highlighters available in the market. You can choose from powder, cream and liquid. Pick whatever suits your skin. I prefer cream in cold weather as my skin is on the drier side, in summers, I like to use powder based highlighters as my skin leans towards oily then.

The products that I like to use for highlighting are-

MAC Light Sweep– This is available only at MAC pro stores. It is a powder and perfect for daily use.

MAC cream colour base in shade Hush– I love this and have already hit pan on my second tub.

The areas for highlighting are centre of forehead, below brow (above crease), cheekbones, nose bridge, cupid’s bow. Some people also like to highlight right below the contour area.

How To Highlight

With Cream Highlighter

I use fingers with my cream highlighter as I feel more in control that way. You can also use a stippling brush. Just dot a little cream highlighter on cheekbones, below brows, nose-bridge and cupid’s bow. Blend well with fingers.

When I’m going for a special event, I also highlight the inner corners of my eyes.

With Powder Highlighter

You can buy powder highlighter from here

Apply powder with a stippling brush, above the blush line and rest of the areas of your face that you want to highlight. Blend properly and you are ready to glow!
