Strobing, highlighter, baking—whatever you want to call it, the glowy skin trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Gone are the days when super-matte skin was in and we’ve now transitioned to a time where gorgeous healthy and glowing skin is the main goal. As far as we see it, the glowier the better when it comes to ultra-highlighted skin. Whether you’re a makeup addict (we’re right there with you) or searching for a more subdued look, that is equal parts fresh and dewy and summer goddess (without the harmful UV rays, of course), integrating a highlighter into your routine is easier than ever.
First thing’s first: where to apply highlighter? The beauty about highlighter—particularly liquid highlighter—is how versatile it is. You can use as much or as little of the L’Oréal Paris Lumi Glow Boosting Drops as you want, going from a high-wattage makeup look to a more natural glowy finish. Whether you’re looking to add a touch of highlighter to the high points of your face—think cheekbones, cupid’s bow and the inner corners of your eyes—or want a more all-over glow—think décolleté and shoulders, highlighter can make you feel like you’re a glowing goddess without the sunshine.
Included in your highlight kit arsenal should always be a lightweight alternative to a powder of cream highlighter. L’Oréal Paris Lumi Glow Boosting Drops are easy to blend and adapt to achieve just the right amount of highlighter glow. Whether that is a high-level glow or just a touch of sheen, this can help you transition your look easily from day to night.
Never forget: Highlighter was made to stand out and add the ultimate glow. Whether you’re prepping for a night out, a special event or just want to bring some kilowatt-level drama to your makeup look, in this case, the more highlighter the merrier. You could probably write the book on how to apply highlighter and likely even have a whole highlighter palette to choose a different level for every day of the week (and we applaud that!).
You can appreciate the more-is-more approach to highlighter but are more of a less-is-more user. Even if you’re just hoping for a bit of a perk-up to fake that eight-hours-of-sleep look, you can still add a touch of highlighter and get that low-key, model-off-duty natural glow.
Some days you want lots of drama, some days you want no drama and some days you just want to put your freshest face forward. You may not want your highlighter to be the main attraction, but certainly don’t consider it the understudy either.
