While I'm not a big fan of applying contour unless it is for dramatic effect under low lighting, for photography or for stage etc, I AM a fan of an amazing highlight applied to perfection!
The following image shows the areas where light naturally hits the face. I also calls these areas the "high points" of the face.
These areas are where you would apply your highlight! Please keep in mind that highlight is NOT to be applied this heavily or to look this obvious! This is a dramatic illustration!
Highlight should look so natural that it looks like your skin has an amazing healthy glow and NOT like you have makeup on!
This means BLEND BLEND BLEND and make sure you choose a highlight that is right for your skin tone! If you have warm skin tone, choose a highlight with a golden glow and if you have a cool skin tone, choose a highlight with a more silvery glow!
Highlight products come in various formulations! If your skin is dry, opt for a creamy formula that you can mix into your foundation or apply directly under or over foundation. If you choose a powder, be sure to add it AFTER you have added a setting powder to your foundation. This gives it more slip and makes it easier to blend!
And finally, please PLEASE do not add highlight directly to the middle of the end of your nose! It makes you look as though you have a light bulb on the end of your nose and while this may be flattering for Instagram, it is not flattering in life! Bridge ONLY!
