Winter weather can be harsh on women’s skin so I wanted to share one of my favorite real mink 3D eyelash strip lashes tips for fall and winter. Do you ever wonder how celebrities on the red carpet have such noticeable glowing skin? It’s not all good genes and getting regular facials. There’s a trick makeup artist’s use on famous clients. That makeup is a good highlighter and my current favorite is a cream base highlighter by MAC called “Shell.”($18) It’s a pink-ish hue, so if you prefer bronzed, choose the color “Pearl.” The cream base is also preferred in winter when pores tend to appear parched. Makeup that makes skin appear moisturized is key.
What does a highlighter do? It adds a subtle gorgeous glow that highlights the face in the most flattering light and it photographs well. Highlighters reflect light where you want.
How do you apply it? For a cream base, apply with your finger or a real mink 3D eyelash strip lashes sponge so you control where it’s applied. To set it or tame the shine, go over it with translucent all-over powder.
Where should you apply highlighter? The most common place is the upper cheek bones. It can be applied after foundation, bronzer and a touch of blush. Also highlight just below your brow. If you’re showing a little skin, a little shimmer on your collarbone never hurts.
Not a fan of cream based makeup? Here are two other options. Try Nars Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross-($27). It’s not glittery and has a very natural finish. Or for a more noticeable and dramatic effect, try Victoria’s Secret Shimmer All-Over Powder in Star (pink) or Bronze Goddess -($14)
Here’s a bonus tip. I’ve seen professional makeup artists use this Victoria’s Secret product and it’s a great price. Just remember to apply with a brush and not to use too much because it’s very shimmery. I don’t recommend this for people who get really oily. Also, it says “All-Over Powder” in the name and they’re not kidding. When I’m in a pinch and want to have a sexy shimmer, I take a pinch of this powder and add it to my body lotion as I spread on my arms and legs. It gives the same shimmering effect you see on celebs.
I went from highlighting my text books in college to highlighting my face the past few years and the latter is a lot more fun. If you’re new to using highlighter, it’s best to test the different areas on your face, (you can even watch a YouTube tutorial how to apply them) then take a pic. It may photograph differently than you see in the mirror depending on how much you applied. Nobody needs a Facebook tag with their face looking like a Christmas tree ornament. Been there, done that, removed tag. The highlighting effect isn’t just for celebs, so go ahead and shine like a star yourself!
