How to apply Highlighter on Bare Skin without using Foundation

Author: mvd

Description: Wearing a bit of highlighter on your bare skin without applying foundation or any other base product is possible and easy to do. It is helpful to bring out a bit of glow without putting in too much effort.

Tools you will need:

- Moisturiser
- Highlighter
- Fluffy Face Brush

Step 1: Moisturise your face well!

After you have washed/cleansed your face, apply a good moisturiser that suits your skin type and needs.

You can use your fingers to apply your favourite moisturiser to your face using gentle circular motions.

Once you have moisturised your skin well, you are ready for the next step.

Step 2: Apply Highlighter on your Bare Skin without Foundation

Here, the focus is on the powder highlighter, which doesn’t have to be from a highlighting palette or compact but could be from an eyeshadow palette or a single shadow. However, just make sure that it has a soft shimmer finish and is not too intense. Then, pick the closest shimmery eyeshadow/highlighter that suits your skin tone.

This way, you’ll be able to add a subtle glow that suits your skin tone and one that won’t look too much.

Use a bigger brush and swirl the brush into the highlighting shadow that you’ve chosen and a little bit to the top of your cheeks or/and q-bits bow.

The bigger the face brush, the softer your glow will be.

A bit of the highlighter can give you the soft glow you need; you really don’t have to use a lot!
