Highlighting powder is the preferred medium of choice for more subtle, natural highlights. The less-present colors and matte shades achievable with highlighting powder makes it a great choice for those who want a more natural look. Here are some ideas on getting the most out of your highlighting powder.
Consult color charts. Different makeup manufacturers and beauty specialists have their own recommendations on what color palettes go well together. While we encourage you to go your own way when it comes to your beauty choices, these recommendations will provide you a good starting point as your travel down the road to a more beautiful you.
Get a good set of makeup brushes. While it might seem a significant investment at first, having a good set of brushes allows you to do so much more with less. This doesn’t just apply to cases when you choose a highlighter powder either. We can almost guarantee you’ll be forever finding new uses for different brushes several years down the road.
Know your skin type. If you have oily skin, a highlighting powder might work for you better than a cream. Powders tend to have just enough in them to knock off that bit of shine that ruins the balance of a look. Using powder on dry skin, on the other hand, can accentuate that dryness a bit more. However, there are no rules, and plenty of products will offer good results along with a wide range of skin types.
