How I Highlight – An answer in pictures to ‘Anonymous’

Two (or three?) posts ago, I received a comment from Anonymous:

i love this look and teals are so perfect for your skintone!

re: nars albatross, can i ask how you are applying it and with what type of brush? i have albatross and i’m using an angled contour brush to apply it after my blush, however it looks very white and distorts the colour of my blush.

on you however, it just looks great and glowy. perhaps the density of my brush is too great? argh!

The highlighter used in these pictures isn’t NARS Albatross – sorry! It’s Bourjois Highlighting Powder but you get the idea. I use a brush from Flirt! simply called the ‘Blush’ brush. It’s pretty fluffy and dense which is why I only lightly swirl my brush onto the highlighting powder. I highlight my cheeks after applying blush. It goes on top of my cheekbones 🙂

Please note that this is just how I apply my powder highlighter.

PS It looks dusty but it’s not, lol 😦

I hope this helps!
