Power of Highlighter at the 2015 Oscars – GET THE LOOK

Highlighter is a product that can completely change your beauty look and at Gia Minerals we got you covered to create that perfect luminous glowing Oscar look like Chrissy Teigen, Jennifer AnistonJennifer Lopez, Zoe Saldana.

When highlighter is applied correctly it can perk up your complexion, accentuate the features you love, and even camouflage aging skin. I love highlighters and think they are the secret to a healthy youthful glow. Highlighters can help minimize dark circles, decrease the look of wrinkles, and mimic a facelift with appropriate placement. The key is choosing a proper highlighter and knowing how to use it. You want to choose a highlighter that gives skin a slight glowing sheen whether it’s a pink or golden tone with light-reflecting particles to enhance your favorite features. . Highlighter should be applies after your foundation. I like to apply it after my bronzer and my blush. It’s usually the last step of my makeup routine

There are five main areas to apply highlighter:

Cheekbones: On your cheeks blend the highlighter on the highest point of your cheekbone and up towards your temple. Banish under-eye circles by applying a bit of bronzer on the cheekbones, where light naturally hits the face. My favorite is to also layer a glimmering product with your blush to create a rosy glow on the apples of your cheeks.

  • Forehead: Mimic a sun-touched look by applying highlighter in the center of your forehead. Then lightly brush outward in a star pattern to diffuse the product. To avoid a shiny look, use a foundation that is one shade lighter than your skin tone instead of a shimmering product.
  • Underneath the Eye Brow: Blend it underneath the eyebrow on the brow bone and into the inner crease. Disguise grown-out brows with a touch of highlighter underneath your arches. This emphasizes the shape and detracts from any stray hairs.
  • Inner Eyes: Erase tired eyes by dabbing a highlighter eye shadow in the inner corners of your eyes. You'll look wide awake, even if you're partying until dawn. Great for day look and evening look.

    Cupid's bow: Dab highlighter just above your lips in the cupid's bow area to give your lips a fuller and a pouty appearance.

    Highlighters, and illuminators are made to emphasize the areas the sun naturally spotlights you face or where the light would hit your face naturally.
