Beauty Q&A: How Do I Highlight My Nose?May 14, 2021
Choose the Right Highlighter Shade“Choosing a highlighter share is a bit different than choosing other makeup shades,” says Garcia. “Look for one a couple of shades lighter than your skin with a golden undertone to ensure you get the look of light reflecting on your face.” He recommends the YSL Beauty Touche Éclat All-Over Brightening Pen.
How to Highlight the Nose
Take the Touche Éclat brush tip applicator and draw a solid upside-down triangle between your eyebrows. Next, extend it straight down the bridge of your nose to the tip. “Warm your fingers and lightly press in the color,” says Garcia.“This will soften the look without displacing the highlighter.”
Garcia’s biggest tip for achieving a natural finish is to avoid making the line down the bridge of your nose too wide. “This may make the nose look wider rather than more defined,” he says.
Once complete, set the highlighter with just a touch of translucent powder to keep it in place. Garcia loves the YSL Beauty All Hours Powder in Universal for this. If you want to take it to the next level, add a touch of shimmering highlighter powder like the brand’s Touche Éclat 3D All Over Glow Powder on top.
