The Most Underrated Highlighter: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish
What’s the most important step in your makeup routine? Highlighter. Whether you’re trying to achieve a dramatic effect or you’re trying to create the illusion of natural radiance, you definitely don’t want to skimp on the highlighter.
Luminous skin is universally flattering. If you do a good job… you enhance your facial features, you bring more dimension to your facial structure, and you get a gorgeous glow.
If you haven’t already given it a try, you must check out MAC Cosmetics’ Mineralize Skinfinish ($34). Though there are a bunch of great highlighters out there… trust me, this one definitely deserves a spot in your beauty drawer. Can’t decide which is the best out of the 10 gorgeous shades? Go for the cult classic ‘Soft & Gentle’ for a beautiful, warm peach bronze!
Compared to your traditional highlighter, this product features a velvety smooth texture that will instantly brighten up your complexion. With a gentle swipe, this highlighter will give your face a soft, sunkissed glow.
This dome-shaped powder is incredibly versatile. With this formula, you can easily build up your highlight to up the glam!
Without a doubt, this is the best highlighter for everyday wear if you’re looking for a delicate, luminous glow. But if you’re more of an ultra-glam type of girl, you might want to opt for a highlighter that’ll require less effort to build up the drama.
How to apply:
For a radiant finish, use a powder brush to lightly dust the powder all over your face, applying more emphasis in the center of your forehead, your chin, above your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and your cupid’s bow. To make your features more prominent, you could either use a small brush or your finger to directly apply this product onto the bridge of your nose and your cupid’s bow.
