Why You Should Mix Highlighter With FoundationSeptember 24, 2020
The search for perfect-looking skin has our constant attention — we invest in fancy foundations, skin-smoothing primers and magical blending sponges. But little did we know that creating a flawless makeup base has less to do with these products and a whole lot more to do with what we mix with our foundation. Ahead, we break down exactly how to achieve the look by mixing highlighter with our favorite foundation formulas, and we guarantee that the results are better than any other method out there.
STEP 1: Pick the Right Liquid-Based Highlighter
Picking the right illuminating product is key to making this makeup cocktail a success. First and foremost, choose a highlighter that has more of a sheer finish, as opposed to a glittery, shimmery one (save your Urban Decay Moondust Glitter Liquid for another occasion, or add it on top after for more glow!). You’ll need a lightweight formula like the NYX Professional Makeup Born To Glow! Liquid Illuminator that will blend seamlessly with your foundation and leave a natural, subtle glow.
