Makeup Artist Shares Highlighter Technique That Gives You That “Glass Skin” Look

One of the best parts about doing makeup is putting highlighter on. However, it is difficult to find that one highlighter that just highlights the highest points of your face and doesn’t look like a white cast on top of your cheekbones. You might buy the most expensive products out there and it still might not look good.

Having clear skin is a struggle for some, being genetically blessed with it can only happen to few people.

Makeup artists nowadays have provided us with so many techniques you can use. It all depends on finding what works best for you. A British makeup artist has come up with a highlighter technique that will give you the poreless glow you see all over Instagram. Nikki Wolff, a global makeup ambassador for Becca, has shared her method on her Instagram. She literally uses only two products: the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in Moonstone.

Here is how she does it:

She first starts of the glass skin highlight technique by moisturizing. Wolff says that even though highlighter is supposed to give you that skin glass skin, the most important factor is skin care. Secondly, she lays down a base of an illuminating foundation. She uses the Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation which will give the skin a natural within glow.

Then she combines a little bit of the Shimmering Skin Perfector liquid with a little bit of a beauty balm in your hand. Wolff prefers using the Cocunat Divine Balm because it amplifies the highlighter’s “glossy glow.” Next, sweep the concoction onto that places where you notice your skin glows most. The highest points of your face. The top of your cheekbones, brow bones, temples, the inner corners of your eyes, and cupid’s bow. Make sure you avoid the sides of your nose and the center of your forehead. The brush she uses for this look is The Fenty Beauty Cheek-Hugging Highlight Brush 120.
