Ask any makeup artist what their glow-to is for getting makeup lit, and the answer will always be a luminosity-building liquid highlighter. It boosts a dull complexion, helps you slay your angles and even makes eyes appear more awake (no matter how many late nights you’ve had...) Basically, it’s got you covered for every makeup eventuality. To find out how to make liquid highlighter your ultimate beauty saviour, follow these five glow-giving hacks that will transform your makeup...
1. Give Dull Skin a Glow-Up
If your skin is looking more grey than glowing, add a dot of Insta Strobing Highlighter in Gold Glow to your Lasting Radiance Foundation and mix together, creating an illuminating formula that will boost even the dullest complexions. Blend over clean, moisturised skin using a slightly damp makeup sponge to leave a sheer, radiant finish to your base that lights up your skin. You glow, girl.
2. Slay Those Angles
To get your angles on point, liquid highlighter has got your back. Dot Insta Strobing Highlighter onto cheekbones, temples and centre of the nose, lightly tapping with fingertips to diffuse the formula over your base with a soft-focus finish. To really lift and sculpt your brows, dot liquid highlighter under the highest point of the arch, tapping to blend without disrupting your base underneath.
3. Fake a Good Night’s Sleep
Feeling the effects of a late night? Create the illusion of wide-awake eyes (even when you’re feeling more than a little delicate from last night...) by adding a dot of liquid jelly highlighter into the inner corners of each eye. Who needs sleep when you have Jelly Highlighter in Poppin’ Bottles in your makeup bag?
4. Contour Your Curves
Not just for your face; liquid highlighter is perfect for sculpting and contouring your body, too. Be your own glam squad by smoothing Insta Strobing Highlighter in Bronze Glow down the centre of legs and arms, using a tanning mitt to gently blend outwards. Next, warm a little liquid highlighter between fingertips before patting onto tops of shoulders and your décolletage to highlight and define. Wear with your best off-the-shoulder mini for flawless night out glam.
5. Create Fuller Lips
Kiss hello to pillow-y soft, full and flawless lips with a touch of strategically placed liquid highlighter. Use fingertips to pat Insta Strobing Highlighter in Pink Glow onto your cupid’s bow, reflecting the light to soften and plump around your lip curves. Then, once you’ve applied your fave shade of lipstick, dot liquid highlighter in the centre of lips, blending outwards to create the look of a full, plump pout.
