6 Celebrity Make-Up Artists Share Their Favorite Highlighters Of All Time. With summer’s glow fading by the minute. There’s no better time to fake lit-from-within winter skin.
Check out 6 Body Lotions To Tackle Winter SkinA strict bedtime routine of hydrating serums and ceramide-packed masks will help boost overall moisture levels – but perhaps nothing will provides that ethereal sheen quite like the right highlighter.
Liquid, powder, glitter or glimmer, it’s virtually foolproof and can be dabbed on anywhere, anytime – although most pros recommend tapping it onto the high planes of the face for supernatural skin in seconds. Here, six celebrity make-up artists share their favorite formulas for a healthy, luminous complexion all year round.
“One of my favourite highlighters is the Chanel Poudre Lumière because it’s buildable and adds the perfect amount of glow on the skin. I usually apply it right after foundation but before bronzers or blush so it doesn’t wash out the shade. For a light application I use a feather brush and for a bolder look, I like Pat McGrath Labs’s Buffer Brush. Places I like to focus on: cheekbones, nose bridge, chin, and right in the middle of the forehead, wherever I want light to reflect.”
“My favorite highlighter isn’t actually a highlighter. I love to use an emollient balm on areas of the face, like the cheekbones and brow bones. It gives a very expensive, healthy-looking glow that reflects beautifully without any powdery or shimmery texture on the skin. Recently I’ve been loving the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder Glow, which I sweep lightly across cheeks. It doesn’t leave a heavy-looking texture behind. Then I follow by patting a bit of lip balm right over it with my fingers. The reflection is heavenly.”
