The Only Highlighter Combo You Need: Fall Highlighters8:44:00 PM
So... the weather has finally dropped below 90 here in New Orleans and I am soooo excited for Fall. When it gets cooler, I get excited because I can finally pull out more of my Cream products and don't have to worry about them melting off my face.
A few weeks ago, I did a review of the NYX Bright Idea Illuminating sticks (post) and lately I have been pairing the shade "Pinkie Dust" with two of my favorite powder highlighter and I just had to share these beautiful combinations with you.
Layering a powder highlighter over a cream can do so many things for your highlighter game:
- It intensifies the color payoff
- Increases the longevity of your glow
- Can add extra dimension and intensity to your highlighted areas
- Is still buildable, so can be as intense or subtle as you like (We all don't like to see our highlighter from a mile away)
Let's take a look at some of my favorite Highlighters alone and on top of the Nyx Cream Highlighter:
Tips for ApplicationThe best thing about this highlighting technique is the simplicity of it. I apply the stick highlighter to my face in the areas I like to highlight (directly from the tube) and blend it out with small stippling brush. I then go right over that area with my highlighting fan brush and the powder highlighter making sure to blend out and harsh lines and That's it!
