B.Barnett is the local authority on women’s fashion, clothing, accessories and cosmetics. The experts recommend the following techniques to contour and highlight your face for that added glow.
Center of the Forehead – Highlighting the center of your forehead prevents your face from looking too flat and brightens up the entire face. Application should be very sheer – a fan brush with shimmering powder achieves this look.
Above the eyebrow arch – Highlight above the highest point of the arch to give yourself a mini brow-lift. Use a cream formula to achieve this look.
Center of the eyelid – a small dot of highlighter right in the center of your eyelid opens up the eyes. A light colored eyeshadow containing a hint of shimmer will help to achieve this look.
Below the eyelid – Instead of just placing concealer below your eye, take it down farther into an ‘upside down triangle’ so that it achieves more of an uplifting effect. A liquid concealer contained in a tube works best to achieve this look
Center of the ‘cupid’s bow’ – Add just the tiniest amount of the highlighter to the top of the bow to give the illusion of fuller lips. A highlighting stick works best.
