Beauty tips : How to apply eye highlighter

July 21, 2012

I have noticed recently that highlighting specific parts in the eye area makes a huge difference to the look! It makes you look more illuminated!
Sometimes I don’t enjoy highlighting my inner corner and think that it looks ridiculous on me. But I have discovered that it looks amazing during the summer! There’s a thing in winter that makes highlighters for inner corners look weird… Well, that’s what I think when I see it on myself. However, I don’t mind highlighting my brow bone. I love doing that actually!
Few of my friends asked me how do it and what do I use, so I decided to share it with all of you!

Highlighting is all about accentuating features, we probably all know that already. But you have to know which features you want to accentuate.

In the eye area, you can highlight the tear duct area to make your eyes look open and make you look more awake (as seen in the picture above).

I like using two brushes to do this trick:
1) A pencil brush like this one. This type on application is good for a dramatic look. Of course, the edges have to be blended out to avoid harsh lines.
2) A tapered blending brush to have a softer look. With a brush like this one you just have to dab it a few times or swirl it over the area. You don’t have to worry about blending it out. I think this is great for more natural looks or daily looks.

You can also highlight the brow bone. I love doing this! It looks great for all types of looks!
A few months ago I found out that an angled brush does the job perfectly for brow highlighting. Check it out here. You just sweep the brush under half of the outer end of your brow. Easy peasy!

You can also dab a bit of highlighter on the center of your lid, over your eyeshadow, it gives a lovely effect!

Do you enjoy highlighting your eye area? Tell me in the comments bellow!
