Pro Tips for a Flattering Highlighter Placement

Highlighter has become a staple in many makeup bags and for good reason. While bronzer adds warmth to the face and blush adds color, highlighter provides a beautiful lit-from-within glow and adds dimension to the face by drawing attention to areas you want to pop such as the cheekbones, brow bone and the inner corner of the eyes. And, they come in various different formulas and textures (think creams, powders and liquids) and shades (champagne, pearl and bronze). In addition to the right tools and technique, a flawless highlighter application also requires proper placement to achieve the desired effect. 

Below, Dominique Lerma, a MODA Brush executive makeup artist, walks us through a winning combination of highlighter, bronzer and blush and shares her favorite and most creative ways to achieve both a subtle glow or a shimmer-inducing effect. 

5 Places To Apply Highlighter For A Glowing Complexion
