That highlighter is a mainstay in every makeup lovers kit isn't breaking news. Ever since the trend swept the world at the end of the decade, glowing skin has been serious business. Any makeup addict worth her lipstick has not only has a single highlighter but multiples of it in various forms. One of them should be liquid highlighter. Trust me, I don't use the word 'should' liberally but this instance asked for it. Unlike pressed powder highlighters that sparkle in flat pans, liquid highlighter is of liquid consistency and comes in a bottle. It is more pigmented than its powder counterpart and can be blended even more seamlessly into the skin without the use of any tools if necessary. Liquid highlighter is also extremely versatile and can be used in more ways than just to highlight the high points of your face.

If your matte foundation is making you look like that, add 2-3 drops of liquid highlighter to it, blend both components together and apply. It will add a dewy glint to your skin and lend more depth to the look of it.
Want your body lotion to do more than moisturise and scent the body?
