Some of them can get kind of pricey so here’s a guide to some multitasking, top rated highlighters that are sure to become your glow go-tos as well as some pro tips on how to optimize your look & increase the wear of your product.
Quick cheat in case you’re wondering where else the glow can go
Pro Tip: A fan brush is a girl’s best friend when it comes to applying powder highlight. Just sweep a bit over your cheekbones, over your Cupid’s bow & down the bridge of your nose. You can go the extra mile by adding a bit to your chin and forehead. Start lightly & build from there. Important: Don’t go crazy with it!

Pro Tip: For this glow formula, your fingertips are all the tools you need. Use 2 fingers (Suggested: Middle finger & ring finger) a circular motion to “melt” the cream Concealer.
