What is a Highlighter, Illuminator & Luminizer?
Highlighter enhances the cheekbones, forehead, nose and under the eyebrow to sculpt and soften the face, while brightening your complexion.
Considered to be an all-over product, such as a primer, foundation, cream, powder, or serum, intended to bring a soft, natural glow to your skin. Illuminators can be tricky for people with oily skin as it can make the skin seem even oilier.
Similar to an illuminator, Luminizers bring a somewhat more obvious shine to your face. With these similarities, these products can be used interchangeably to achieve an all-over effect for your face.
How Do I Choose the Right Designer Highlighter for Me?The first thing to consider when choosing your highlighter is what colours will compliment your skin tone. The best highlighter makeup will work to enhance the natural glow that already exists in your skin. Knowing your undertone will make it easier for you to find the right products for you to help you achieve your highlighter glow goals.
The best highlighter face palettes are made up of different shades of highlighter that complement one another, blush and bronzer to achieve an all-over, natural glow. This provides you with a handy compact to meet multiple makeup needs & achieve your highlighter makeup style.
Highlighter sticks are an effective, simple way to boost your natural glow. They can be used on their own or over foundation to intensify and add to your look. Being small and easy to use, highlighter sticks are a simple alternative to carrying liquid foundation or powder to make sure you have the perfect makeup look all day long.
Cream & Liquid Highlighters
With the concentrated formula of cream and liquid highlighters, they are great to use for the bolder statement looks. Use your fingers or a blending sponge to gradually add the cream highlighter to your face until you reach the coverage you want. Using other illuminators in combination with cream highlighters will give you that extra radiance for a polished look.
Loose highlighters are shimmery, reflective powders that add some sparkle to your face. These allow for buildable coverage to suit everything from subtle looks to dramatic, glamorous looks. To add some extra intensity, try adding some setting spray to your brush before applying.
Powder highlighters are great for any kind of skin to give your face a shimmery finish. The simplest of all highlighters to use, they can be applied over foundation to achieve a visible glow.
