These versatile products are designed to add a luminous sheen to your complexion, effortlessly accentuating the high points of your face and imparting a natural radiance that catches the sunlight in all the right ways.

Whether you’re aiming for a subtle daytime shimmer or a more intense evening glow, liquid highlighters offer the perfect solution for enhancing your natural beauty and elevating your makeup game to new heights.

During the summer months, when the sun is shining bright and the days are long, incorporating liquid highlighters into your makeup routine becomes even more essential.

Pairing liquid highlighters with lightweight, dewy foundations and minimal makeup allows for a breathable, effortless glow that’s perfect for the sweltering season.

Using liquid highlighter in your summer makeup routine can help you achieve a radiant, dewy glow that’s perfect for the season. Here are some tips to make the most of your liquid highlighter:

Prep Your Skin

Start with a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated without feeling heavy.

Apply a mattifying primer to control excess oil and ensure your makeup stays in place.

Choose the Right Shade

Select a liquid highlighter that complements your skin tone. Fair skin, go for pearlescent or champagne shades. Medium skin, opt for gold or rose gold. Deep skin tones, bronze or copper shades work beautifully.

Mix with Foundation

If you’re looking for an all-over glow, mix a few drops of liquid highlighter with your foundation or tinted moisturizer. This creates a luminous finish without looking too shiny.

Strategic Application

Apply liquid highlighter to the high points of your face where the light naturally hits: the tops of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, the brow bone, and the cupid’s bow.

Use a damp makeup sponge or your fingertips to blend it seamlessly into your skin for a natural look.

Layer for Intensity

Start with a small amount and build up if you want more intensity. It’s easier to add more product than to take it away if you apply too much.

Combine with Powder Highlighter

Want a more pronounced glow? Layer a powder highlighter over the liquid highlighter. This combination helps set the liquid highlighter and enhances the shine.

By following these tips, you can achieve a fresh, luminous look that’s perfect for summer while keeping your makeup routine light and breathable.
