Highlight sporting is an intense highlighter that has been a major trend for a while and things have gotten only extreme since then, and the world loves it. Highlighters are not just used for a subtle glow anymore, instead, make-up artists and influencers prefer to sport a set of glazed doughnut cheekbones and nose tips that would blind the daylights out of you! But wait! You think that is OTT? Cheekbones glow now in different colours. Be it unicorn rainbow highlighters or icy iridescent blue and dusky pink highlighters or yellow trophy wife! Highlighters range from the most common pressed/baked powder highlighters to loose powder, to cream stick to liquid to even the wobbly jelly highlighters. Layer up two different texture highlighters for that “extra” glow and glow up the cheekbones, the nose tips, the chin, inner corners of the eyes, and the cupid’s bow.

How to get the look

 

  • Start by applying foundation and concealer.     
  • Apply highlighter to the top of your cheekbones.                    
  • Dab a little highlighter on the tip of your nose.                                             
  • Brush some highlighter down the centre of your forehead.                                                          
  • To accentuate the centre of your forehead, you can sweep some highlighter down the center of your forehead towards the bridge of your nose.
