BEAUTY BAR: Let it Glow

Highlighting is the latest makeup trend seen on everyone from runway models to big-name celebrities. The technique utilizes a face product that attracts light, creating an illusion of brightness and definition. Ever wondered how to get that sun-kissed glow that every girl craves? With the right application, highlighting can give a dewy, youthful feel to your overall look.

When the temperature is approaching triple-digits, makeup needs to feel weightless and look natural. Generally, highlighter is applied to your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, below your brow bone, and the corner of your inner eyes and blended in with your finger or a damp sponge. It is the perfect lightweight look for those who want to leave the house looking radiant and awake. Both liquid and powder highlighters will get the job done.

This Fashionista created a naturally radiant base for her look with the Too Faced Born This Way foundation. After setting her foundation, she sculpted her nose and cheekbones using the LORAC Pro Contour Palette. She then goes in with an angled powder brush and dusts a generous amount of King Tut by Jeffree Star Cosmetics on her cheekbones and the bridge of her nose to further enhance her natural features. The Fashionista finished her look by drawing a perfect winged liner and applying a neutral matte lipstick.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: This look is really easy to recreate. First you will need a dewy finish foundation or BB cream to create a flawless base. Then contour your face with a warm powder to create the appearance of higher cheekbones. Choose a warm toned highlighter like champagne or gold that best suits your skin tone and gently dust it onto the areas where light naturally hits. Then, you’re good to glow!
