Subtle shine, a faint hint of shimmer, both make a woman look more beautiful. Highlighter is a must-have product for so many women because it creates an illusion of brightness. Whether you’re in candlelight or sunlight you appear to be lit from within. Highlighter illuminates to make eyes look bigger and your face look slimmer and more youthful.
When shopping for a highlighter, think about what metal looks best against your skin. If you love the look of silver, platinum or white gold at your ears and neck, choose highlighter with shimmering silver or pale pink like Neo-Limelight Highlighter. If gold complements your complexion, opt for warm bronze or copper tones like Kevyn Aucoin’s Neo-Bronzer.
Take the guesswork out of application with Kevyn Aucoin’s Neo-Trio Palette. The three-in-one lets you set, bronze, then highlight for impeccable results. Magnetic pans keep the three products together. The dual-fiber Neo Powder brush hugs facial contours to complete all three steps and give the skin a smooth, polished finish.
Sephora’s Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter is available in shades that flatter every skin tone. It’s enriched with a luminescence that refracts light and adjusts to your skin’s natural pigmentation. Laura Mercier’s Face Illuminator is another favorite with powder for face and décolletage. It applies evenly and feels creamy so you can choose your level of illumination from subtle to intense.
