I prefer this look rather than a matte finish, but it’s probably more appropriate for an evening look.
There’s different ways to achieve this look, firstly you could highlight certain features like your cheek bones or brow bones, or you could use a highlighter over the whole face.
If you mix a little with your foundation or moisturiser then apply to the entire face with your hands, or there are plenty of foundations that now come with the highligher already in it. Stila do a fantastic one called Illuminating liquid foundation (£24.00), or MAC Hyper real foundation is £18.50.
If you want to just apply a little to one area try using Pout’s Illuminater £22.00 which comes in two colours Love Glow or After Glow, or Benefit Moon Beam a soft pink or High Beam a golden pink colour £15.50. If you are applying the product this way makes sure it’s blended in properly using your fingertips.
