Unsure what else to do with your trusty shimmery powder? Stuck in a highlighter rut? Fear not, bellas. We’ll get you back on the glow with these handy highlighter hacks, featuring some of our favourite prods from Parisian makeup guru, Manna Kadar.
For cheekbones that pop
If you’re applying your highlighter at the end of your makeup routine, you’re doing it wrong. Using a small-medium fluffy brush, sweep your powder highlighter in a v movement from your temple along your cheeks. THEN apply your blush for a little extra oomph once you’ve rediscovered those cheekbones. Manna Kadar’s Chic Highlighting Powder (in Feb boxes) is a gorgeous pearly peach lightweight powder that gives a lit-from-within glow. Use in all your go-to spots and a few new ones too.
For well-rested eyes
Been burning the candle at both ends? It’s easy to fake wide-awake, well-rested peepers by popping a touch of highlighter in the inner corner of your eyes. Your boss will never know...
Add an extra twinkle
Highlighter isn’t just about accentuating that brow bone, it can also add an elusive twinkle to your eyes. Apply a small dot above your pupil and see the subtle transformation. Right before your very eyes.
For when you want a shortcut
Going away for the weekend and want to lighten up your makeup kit? Opt for a 3-in-1 product. The Fantasy 3-in-1 Blush Eyeshadow Highlighter from Manna Kadar is a serious triple threat. With a champagne pink undertone that’s universally flattering, and a light, velvety texture, it’s perfect for adding a glow to the cheeks or highlighting the cupid’s bow, brow bone or inner tear duct. For a deeper, foiled eyeshadow effect, it can also be applied wet to your eyelids.
For a mini facelift
A sheer, shimmery powder highlighter is great for lifting an otherwise flat face of makeup. If you’ve been going to town with the bronzer, a wash of highlighter below the hairline will quickly balance things up and throw some light on your lovely face.
For date night
If you really want to dazzle, go and brush your shoulders off. Apply your powder highlighter to your shoulders with a fan brush for a sexy, I-dare- you-to- touch-me shimmer.
