Highlighter has exploded in popularity in recent years, ushering in a whole new category of face cosmetics. It’s supposed to give your skin a dewy, fresh glow, but some highlighters are really glittery and may make you appear like you’ve smeared glitter on your face. The idea is to choose one with a super-fine micro-shimmer so you can layer your glow—a less-is-more approach is essential here. If you want to know how to use liquid and powder highlighter, read on!
Types of highlighters
- Cream highlighters are the most realistic-looking since they are applied with your fingertips and dissolve into your skin.
- Powder and liquid highlighters tend to sit on top, which isn’t always a negative thing; it simply means they’re more obvious (which may be what you’re trying for, especially if you’re being shot).
- Shimmery bronzers work well as a highlighter when used sparingly on the high points of the face or only on the cheekbones—not as an all-over colour.
How to Use a Highlighter in a Variety of Ways
Because skin isn’t naturally matte, highlighter can help offset the one-dimensional appearance that might occur when creating full-coverage makeup looks. It’s a vital step in contouring your face since it adds bright places to contrast the shadows. Highlighter is a versatile beauty product that may be used for a variety of purposes: When you don’t have your eye makeup on hand, use it as eyeshadow, or dab a pink highlighter on the apples of your cheeks and call it blush.
How to use liquid highlighter
One of those tough cosmetic tools is liquid highlighter. On the one hand, it has the potential to provide the final touch to any look, leaving the skin looking glowy and shiny. On the other hand, if you’re not sure how to apply it, liquid highlighter might undo all of your hard work in the cosmetic department.
Apply three drops of the Mermaids Voice Liquid Highlighter to the very top of your cheekbones. Use a tiny highlighter brush to apply the product. After applying the product, be sure to immediately integrate it in!
Instead of applying the highlighter directly to your skin, apply some liquid highlighter to the back of your hand and pick it up with the same brush you used before. You don’t want the impression to be as strong on the other high points of the face. Sweep the brush above each brow once you’ve finished this. Apply the remaining highlighter on the top and tip of your nose, as well as your Cupid’s bow.

How to Use a Highlighter? When using powder highlighter, use a fan brush to sprinkle the powder onto the regions of your face you want to shine.
Where Should You Put Highlighter on Your Face?
The placement of highlighter relies on the shape and characteristics of your face. Highlighter should be applied to the high points of your face or anyplace light naturally reflects: the tops of your cheekbones, the brow bone, the centre of your chin, the cupid’s bow, the centre of your forehead, the tip of your nose, and occasionally even the bridge of your nose.
Where Can I Find the Best Highlighter?
Because adhering to one product texture reduces caking, the optimum highlighter formula for you will depend on the rest of your face makeup regimen. Your skin type will most likely influence your product selection: Because liquid solutions do not accumulate in fine wrinkles, they are recommended by persons with dry or older skin. For a more natural glow, choose a highlighter colour that suits your natural skin tone and undertone.
