💠 Quick Tips-

  • Use a small, fluffy brush or fan brush to apply powder highlighter to the perfect spot.
  • Use a little fixing spray after applying the highlighter to get more pigmentation.
  • If you are a beginner then choose a shade lighter than your skin tone and highlight in a sideways V formation that goes from the temple to the cheekbone.
  • Use soft contour powder to reduce the sparkle in order to achieve a more minimal look.
  • If you are an office going person, then you can go for a sparkle based highlighter. On the other hand, if you are going to be out under the sun, then consider choosing a subtler shade.
  • Keep the tone(cool/warm) of the highlighter same as your blush and bronzer.
