How to Perfect Your Highlighter
Using your finger tips or a small soft brush apply the highlighter right underneath your brow bone and blend. Sweep the highlighter down the bridge of your nose with a soft brush. If you’d rather not bring attention to your nose, you can use whatever is left on your brush from the previous step for just a hint of shimmer.
