Introducing highlight to your makeup look will show off your best features on your face.
We’ve all seen those perfect Instagram models with faces shining like they’re out of this world. However, by highlighting, we are simply amplifying what your face has to offer. With a little practice, highlighting can look natural.
Yet, if you find yourself struggling with making your complexion really pop, I have put together a list of tips for applying highlighter in an easy, natural way.
Of course, we will be dealing with spray on makeup. Highlights have never been easier to apply! I have also highlighted (get it?) some great products for you to purchase if you’re still not familiar.
Prime It Up
Before we create the perfect highlights using our airbrush gun, we need to build a base. This will ensure that your shine has something to rest upon.
Use a primer that suits your skin type. Apply to your whole face and let it sit for a few minutes. Besides evening out your complexion, the primer will allow your makeup to last a little longer.
Product suggestion: I suggest Rock Candy Beauty’s setting spray. This spray is full of natural goodness and doubles up as a primer.
Build That Foundation
Next, we are moving onto the foundation to create a flawless face.
You only need about 3-4 drops of foundation. When you have prepared your airbrush gun, you want it to be about 6 inches away from your face. Then, glide across using circular movement. When you have applied once, step back and check. If you’re looking for a little more coverage, add another layer with the same movements.
Product suggestion; I suggest the No Filter 4K foundation from Rock Candy Beauty. This natural foundation comes in an outstanding sixteen shades for you to choose from.
It’s time to add blush to make those cheeks as sweet as possible.
Two or three drops of blush should be more than enough. With your gun loaded and ready, start from the top of your cheekbone and work towards your hairline. Add a little and then revisit to check you are happy with the application.
Product suggestion: With limited stock, Rock Candy Beauty does sometimes provide us with a blush range. It’s worth the wait, because the flush of goodness makes your cheeks absolutely glow!
Let’s Highlight It Up
Choose a shade you always dreamed about and start.
By adding two to three drops, you can quickly achieve a great look. You want to highlight your nose, jawline, and chin. Only a bit of mist will allow your features to pop and give you more definition.
Next time light hits your face, go to the nearest reflective surface and enjoy.
Set For Success
When you have created your flawless highlighted look, you need to set t before you’re good to go.
Although spray-on makeup is known for its staying power, you can add a little extra so your confidence lasts all day long. Mist your face with a setting spray, and you are ready to rock with your fabulous highlighted look!
Product suggestion: Rock Candy Beauty setting spray will ensure your fantastic highlighted look is set throughout the day and into the evening! Filled with natural goodness, this spray will nourish your face when applied.
With a little practice, using your airbrush gun will become second nature. Plus, it will safeguard against applying too much highlighter and ending up looking greasy. A highlighter’s purpose is, after all, to make your naturally gorgeous features pop.
My chosen brand is, as you could see, Rock Candy Beauty. Made with love, you can be assured you are applying only products that will help you look your best.
And finally, don’t be afraid to rock that highlighted look. You’re beautiful, so go on and show it to the world.
