|As far as where to put your makeup goes, something like lipstick is self-explanatory. It's meant for your lips, hence the name *lip*stick. But highlighter--well, highlighter is one of those tricky things you may not inherently know what to do with. Obviously, from the word, you can conclude it's meant to bring attention to certain spots, it's just a matter of exactly where to put the stuff. |
The idea is to put this shimmery stuff on those places that might naturally catch the light. Here's a quick list.
Spot 1: Along your cheekbones or right above them if you want to sculpt out your cheeks. Just blend well so you don't look like you have a weirdly shiny line across your face.
Spot 2: Down the center of your nose to visually slim it slightly.
Spot 3: On your browbone (AKA under your eyebrows) and/or in the inner corners of your eyes to make your peepers look bigger.
Spot 4: Right in the dip of your cupid's bow. Very sexy, this spot.
Spot 5: Along the high point of your collarbone to look sexier in a strapless dress.
Try 'em all or just one or two next time you go all out with your makeup for a little extra something. A few to give a try:
