How To Put Highlighter On:

Since we all now know where we should be applying our highlighter, the next logical question is what do we use to apply it? Although this is a super simple question, there are a few tips and tricks that I have to make the whole process super simple for you. When picking out the tool that you need to use, it depends on the type of highlighter formula that you are working with.

If you are using a liquid highlighter or a cream formula, I recommend using your favorite beauty sponge to make sure that it blends seamlessly into the skin.

If you are using a powder formula, I recommend using either the Morphe M510 brush or any similar brush that has that tapered edge so you can get a precise application. I would use a smaller brush for highlight since you typically want it to be concentrated in one area and not diffusing any glittery particles on the rest of your face.

If you want a super precise application, such as along the bridge of your nose or your brow bone, I recommend using a thinner brush that has a tapered end or even a small pencil brush.

My last tip when it comes to highlighter application is that if you really want to make it pop and your skin to gleam, after applying your layer of highlighter, I recommend applying setting spray to your brush and then applying a layer of highlighter right on top. The extra dash of moisture, although it seems small, will really do wonders for your skin and really bring it to life.
