Get Your Glow On: The Season’s Best HighlightersBy Shahada Karim | December 6th, 2011 | Category: Beauty | No Comments »
A little bit of highlight goes a long way to give skin that perfect “Holiday Glow.” What used to be an optional makeup item has quickly become a staple for any makeup routine. Picking the perfect highlighter is simple. Just use your skin as your guide.
Powder highlighters work best because they can still give the illusion of glowing skin without adding unwanted shine. This formula works best when applied with a brush.

Cream or Gel Highlighters help to keep skin moisturized while adding a soft glow. These formulas work best when applied with fingers.

Application Tip: Apply highlighter along the high planes of the cheekbones, down the center of the nose, and across the top of the lip . . . commonly referred to as the “cupid’s bow.” For a little extra highlight, apply on the brow bone (just under the eyebrow).
