As summer nears and the weather starts to warm up, it’s common to want to let your skin breathe as much as possible. The thought of layers and layers of makeup can feel a little claustrophobic when you’re in the midst of a heatwave. Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you have to completely forgo wearing makeup. One of the the quickest and easiest ways to brighten up your complexion and look summer fabulous is by applying a highlighter. A highlighter not only gives your face an instant lift but showers you with a glow that makes you look like a glammed-up goddess.
To achieve a natural highlighted effect, you’ll want to place your focus on the bridge of your nose, above your cheekbones, your brow bones, cupid’s bow and the center of your forehead. While there are a variety of makeup brushes you can use to apply highlighter, one tried and true beauty tool is the fan brush. Because of its half-moon shape, it makes applying highlighter easier. The smaller and thinner the bristles are, the easier it is to build your highlighter naturally. This is especially important when you are working with highlighters that have high shimmer or tiny specks of glitter.
