Though everyone is all about highlighting now, it's actually all about precision. Swipe too much on your cheekbones to have an extra blingy streak of glitter or put too little and look like you even tried. WE have been there, a lot. And no, we do not recommend ditching your illuminator because it’s the holiday season. Since it's party season we all could use magic, glitter and pixie dust in our lives. So, what do we do?
First of all, know that the best illuminators are the ones that blend well and are buildable depending on the glow you’re going for. A good highlighter leaves your skin looking naturally dewy, glowy and luminescent instead of shimmery or glittery. If you don’t already have that, you can pick your favourite from these six highlighters which will give you that super-soft highlight, no tricks needed.
