OK, are you glistening?
Good. Because if I could, I would open all of the highlighters in the world above my head and just pour ’em all over me, LOL! All I wanna do is glisten, and I wanna do it all day long.
To say that I’m a little highlighter cray-cray at the moment would be a bit of an understatement, and I’ve been playing with some different techniques, like this one that I recently learned from a makeup artist buddy of mine named Candace. (HI, CANDACE! If you have time, check out her YouTube channel.)
This trick is simple but totally intensifies the glistening effect in a way that doesn’t leave my skin looking frosty.
All you need is a bottle of MAC Fix+ and a synthetic fiber face brush — synthetic because you’ll be wetting it, and synthetic fibers generally aren’t as absorbent as brushes with natural fibers, which in this case is good. I like the Real Techniques Contour Brush because it’s tapered and sits nicely on my cheekbones.
Just put your face on, do your eyes, cheeks, lips and whatever else you plan to do, and after you’ve applied your face powder products, including your highlighter — for me it’s usually bronzer, blush and highlighter — mist your brush with a couple spritzes of MAC Fix+. Then take that brush and lightly tap the damp brush head onto the tops of your upper cheekbones.
That’s it. Voila. When the Fix+ dries, you’ll be left with a soft, glistening sheen and more glowing highlights. 🙂
