To make sure that your skin looks glowing and beautiful and not garish, go through our guide that will be explaining to you about all different types of highlighters.

Powder highlighter

Powder highlighters might just be the right choice for no-makeup makeup look but if not applied the right way then it can look stark because the glitters in this highlighter can be chunky sometimes which can get a little hard to blend on your skin. However, if you are pro at applying a powder highlighter then it can give your face a very beautiful and subtle glow that can be worn on an everyday basis. By taking a fan brush, you can apply the highlighter on your cheekbones and other high points of your face. Just make sure to stroke the brush very lightly so that you don’t go overboard with the highlighter. You can always apply a bit more if you aren’t satisfied with the way it looks. 

Cream highlighters

For all those dressy and fancy occasions where you want to look your glamorous best, this highlighter can be your safest bet. Its creamy formula is very pigmented which gives your face a very bold and flawless glow that is just the right way to work up that glam and fancy look of yours. The best way to apply this highlighter is by using your fingers as it will help in giving you an incredibly seamless and flawless finish. 

Stick highlighters

These highlighters are the most convenient to carry in your bags which can come to your ultimate use when your face feels too tired, dull and lackluster.

Liquid highlighters

Much like cream highlighters, liquid highlighters are also used particularly on days when you are looking to create a full glam face. To intensifies things a bit and add more drama to your look, you can safely rely on liquid highlighters to do the job for you.
