– Many women grew up watching their mothers use a traditional makeup routine that consisted of foundation, blush, powder, and lipstick. Today, there are various other products to enhance your natural features and leave you with a beautiful overall look. One of the most popular cosmetic products is facial highlighter. Highlighting products have been used by makeup artists for decades. These formulas help to accentuate the lines of your face and exaggerate lines and contours. They can also help in giving you a glow at any time of the year, regardless of the last time you spent any time in the sun.
Contouring is a popular makeup technique that uses a darker product to enhance the lines of your face. This is most often achieved by applying bronzer or other highlighting product in a line along the cheekbones to the edge of your face. This subtle color helps to give your face more definition and to make your skin look healthy. To use a product for this purpose, select a formula with a color that is only a couple shades darker than your natural skin color. By comparing it to the foundation that you use, you can find the shade that best suits your skin. READ MORE ABOUT HIGHLIGHT/SHIMMER »

Other products help to highlight your eyes and complexion by camouflaging dark areas of skin. These formulas can be applied directly to the cheekbones or brow line to boost your skin’s radiance. Try applying a highlighting product to dark or shadowed areas of your face to ensure that you look wide awake and invigorated.
When using a highlighting product, begin by applying a small amount. These products are formulated so that you can build coverage. By starting with a small amount, you can carefully control the depth of the coloring, resulting in a beautiful finished look.
Bronzers, shimmering formulas, and highlighting products can be used all over your body. While some are designed specifically for your face, others help to give your body a natural glow. These sheer formulas work to give your skin a slightly golden radiance. This sun-kissed effect helps to keep your skin looking lively and healthy no matter what time of year it is.

After applying a highlighting product, you can feel comfortable wearing it all day and night.
While many people use these products in the winter to keep their skin looking fresh and radiant, you can use highlighting products at any time of year. For bronzer products, you may need to purchase different colors depending on the season and your skin’s ability to tan. BACK TO TOP »
