Girls, Here are 5 Highlighter Mistakes You Need To Stop Making Now !

By


Highlighter is one of those makeup products that, for the most part, seems pretty self-explanatory. Even if you have only a cursory interest in highlighter-heavy makeup looks like strobing and contouring, you probably know that highlighter is a sparkly, glowy, cream or powder-based makeup product that draws attention to focal points on the face and gives one a shiny, ethereal glow. Simple, right? Not so much, actually. While highlighter might seem simple, there are some tricks to applying it that a lot of people don’t know, which means that it’s pretty easy run into mistakes while using it.

1. Putting Too Much On : Make sure to use discretion when you apply highlighter–not only will this save your face from looking like a disco ball (unless this is what you are going for, obviously, in which case you should go for it), you’ll also save a lot of your product. Win-win.

2. Layering Too Much : Even if you’re putting on the right amount, it can still look kind of funky if you concentrate all of your product in one area. Instead, try to apply the highlighter in a clean, even swipe on the focal points.

 3. Using The Wrong Shade : Highlighter is generally pretty translucent, so it’s more forgiving than foundation if you pick a mismatched shade for your skin tone. Still, it’s important to know what color highlighter to use. As a general rule of thumb, if you have darker skin, you should try golden and bronze tones. For pale skin, go for one with more of an ivory tone.
4.  Focusing On The Wrong Places : You make your own rules, obviously, But generally, the best place to apply highlighter are your cheekbones, Cupid’s bow, inner corner of eyes, and the tip of the nose. 

5. Putting It All Over Your Face : Highlighter looks cool! It looks so cool, in fact, that it might be tempting to put it all over your face–which, for the record, you should very much not do. Not only is this a good way to waste your hard-earned makeup, it’ll just make your face look sweaty. It also doesn’t do much in the way of actual highlighting, since it drowns out your features instead of calling attention to them.
