Where Do You Apply Highlighter?
Now that we covered the complete basics, let’s take a deeper dive into the world of highlighting and discuss where you would apply highlighter. As mentioned previously, since the goal of highlighter is to bring out the high points of your face, the places where highlighter is typically applied are: tops of your cheekbones, along the top of your cupid’s bow (basically the top of your upper lip line), down the bridge of your nose, the tip of your nose, under your brow bone, and even over your brow bone on your forehead. The places I just mentioned are only recommendations and you can definitely highlight even more around your face to make any features that you want be accentuated.
One small tip though, although you can pretty much apply highlight anywhere your choose, I would recommend steering clear of any oily spots that you may have on your skin. As someone that has super oily skin, I typically don’t highlight my face in the middle of my forehead and my cheeks; also otherwise known as your T-Zone. If I end up highlighting those places, although it might look fine when I first apply it, after a few hours, my skin gets oily in those places and, mixed with the highlight, it just looks like a greasy mess!
