This week’s video comes a comment on my Youtube video “Silver Sparkling Smokey Eyes“.
“Can I use this as a higlighter for under my eyes? I have been searching high and low for something for my face and can’t seem to find anything.Makeup forever has a contour and highlight duo,but when I went to sephora they were all out…Please help“
The first thing people usually run to in concealer. This is completely fine, try to use one that is warm toned. If you use cool toned concealers, this will make any dark circles and imperfections stand out a bit more. Remember, darker/warmer recedes and lighter/cooler brings forward! Use a brush or your ring finger, and remember to set with a powder so it doesn’t crease!
Try using a lighter dusting of powder under the eye. I’ve learned by my favorite make up artists to use a lighter loose or pressed powder under the eye. This is just another alternative. Billy B. uses Studio fix with a brush and Sam Fine uses MAC Loose Powder with a sponge. I tried the loose powder in NW35 (the same color he used on the NW50 model he was working on) and it works great!
Also, there are many liquid illuminators that do this exact thing. One of the most praised in the industry is the Touche Eclat by YSL. Just use the pen in the appropriate area, and blend with your ring finger or a brush. Bobbi Brown also has one, the Tinted Eye Brightener. I would do this before applying foundation.
