This beauty product will save you a lot of time
We all love multi-taskers and life just gets easier when one makeup product can help with more than just one aspect. Looking for such a product, we hear? It is none other than your highlighter, which has always been a major player in the world of beauty. It is also a highly underrated tool because it does much more than just accentuating your cheekbones.
We tell you how to get the most out of your beloved makeup product.
*Gives the illusion of fuller lips
Angelina Jolie’s lips, here we come. Take some highlighter on a thin makeup brush — eye shadow makeup brushes work the best — and place a hint of it right above the upper lip or cupid’s bow. This gives you the illusion of fullness.
*Makes the nose appear slimmer
Kiss your chubby cheeks goodbye by using a small brush to apply the highlighter along the bridge of the nose with a matte colour that is a shade darker than your skin tone beside your nose. This will give the illusion of a smaller and thinner nose. However, if you plan on doing this for a daytime look, ensure the highlighter blends well with the rest of your face make-up to achieve a more natural or no-makeup look.Is the highlighter a part of your makeup routine?

*Brightens the inner corner of your eyes
Apply highlighter at the inner corner to help the eyes look more awake and brighter. Or perk up your eyes by gently going over your waterline with a highlighter pencil.
*Can be used as an eye shadow or eyeliner
Who said you cannot use a highlighter as an eye shadow? Ditch your usual black liner by spritzing some makeup fixing spray on your brush, dip your brush in powder highlighter and make a sleek eyeliner. Swipe a bit of it on your eyelids for a shimmery night time eye look. Remember not to overdo it or it is going to make your eye make-up look powdery. Less is more, always, when it comes to makeup.
*Makes your skin glow
Scrape some powder highlighter and mix it with your body lotion. Voilà! You get body highlighter without spending bucks and you get to glow in and out.
Ladies, you’re now all set to seize the day!
