Makeup trends are changing faster than ever before. Just when we’re getting used to highlighting, a new thing called flare highlihting is taking center stage. Ad it looks fabulous.
An Instagram user who goes by the name @thestudyofmakeup is teaching amateurs how to go big on highlighting and how to make it so extra. You don’t need use a little highlighter, the more you use, the more beautiful it looks. Her Barbie-selfies of Instragram user have been getting a lot of attention online because all of her makeups look gorgeous and her highlights are causing actual lens flare.
Highlighting is the use of luminous makeup to create a very fresh and dewy look.
The glow can really accentuate the best part of the face so you need to know exactly where to apply the highlighter. With the perfect makeup, every picture will look fabulous.
If it literally looks like there’s a diamond on her cheek reflecting the light so sharply it could cut someone, well, that’s because there is. @thestudyofmakeup told Allure that she adds one Swarovski crystal to her cheekbone, and instead of using a fanned brush, she suggests using a wet eyeshadow brush. This way, instead of lightly brushing the powder across the cheekbone, the wetness of the eyeshadow brush sticks the pigment right in place and there is no extra fallout.
Also, she told Allure she only uses white highlighters because white reflects light better and is much brighter than something gold or pink. So there you have it. Now get out there and shine bright like a diamond, like Rihanna said.
