Now that contouring’s out and non-touring is the next big thing, you’re going to want to rock a subtle, glowing skin look all summer long. So, you know what that means? You’ll need highlighter for dayyysss. This one tip will help you get a highlight to really last, and you have none other than makeup guru NikkieTutorials to thank for this helpful hint.
There’s actually a simple way to make sure that the highlight you apply in the morning will stay shining bright all throughout the day. You’ll be able to have your makeup beat the heat and stay glowing by adding this one simple step into your beauty routine. All you have to do is spray your face with a setting spray before you apply your highlighter. Wait for it to become almost dry, but still a little damp and then go in with shine factor. It’ll give you a glow that just won’t quit, as NikkieTutorials so expertly demonstrates.
Do one side of your face at a time so that the setting spray doesn’t dry before you have a chance to go in with your powder. Apply the highlight along the tops of the cheek bones, to the tip of the nose and to the cupid’s bow to get a dewy look just like Nikkie’s.
As she mentions in the video, this look is super wearable (and durable!) which will make it your go-to look all summer long!
Here's what you'll need to make your glow last from dawn 'til dusk. You might as well be the sun at this point because you'll be shining just as bright.
1. The Perfect Brush
The fan brush end will give you a perfect dusting a powder along your cheek bones while the small brush will help you get just the right amount of shine on your cupid's bow.
2. A Shimmering Highlighter
This is the exact same highlighter Nikkie uses to get her summery shimmer.
3. A Setting Spray
A setting spray will keep your highlight in place all day long, and you wouldn't have it any other way, now would you?
Go out there and shine like I know you can!
