You Should Be Wearing Highlighter Outside The Ordinary For The Sultriest Glow

Highlighter is a gorgeous (some would say necessary) addition to any makeup look. If you're tired of dull-looking skin, this shimmery product instantly gives it that sultry glow and a healthier appearance overall. But did you know you don't have to limit it to the usual spots on your face? We all know about applying highlighter to the tops of the cheekbones, the bridge and tip of the nose, as well as the cupid's bow, but there are several other areas you should be wearing it too.

Applying highlighter to areas outside the ordinary really enhances the look of your skin. Of course, wearing it anywhere on the face does just that, but why not kick things up a notch? If you're interested in trying something new and really want to glow up your skin, consider placing the product in these areas as well. We promise you'll be shocked at what a difference it makes.


Want to draw attention to those gorgeous eyes of yours? Swap out your typical eyeshadow with your favorite highlighter. Apply it all over the lid or on its own or create an entire eye look around the highlighter — the choice is up to you. Don't forget to use an eyeshadow primer to ensure the product stays in place all day and night.


Want a gorgeous all-over glow? Use a liquid highlighter on your shoulders. If you don't mind getting a little messy, simply apply it with your hands for an even application. Otherwise, feel free to use a damp beauty blender. Why stop there? Add some highlighter to your collar bones and at the base of your neck for the appearance of glowy, healthy skin.

Above the eyebrows

By wearing highlighter on this part of your face, you're giving your skin the appearance of a natural glow. Because you aren't focusing it on one specific area, it looks like you're glowing from within. Don't forget to apply your highlighter to the usual places as well to achieve this dewy skin.


Yep, you can absolutely wear highlighter on your lips. Not only does it draw attention to your lips, but it gives the illusion of a big and juicy pout. The key is to focus the product on the center of your top and bottom lip. After applying your lipstick, use your finger or a flat shader brush to pack on the pigment. With your finger, lightly dab the highlighter to evenly distribute the product so it doesn't look as intense.


This one is probably the most uncommon out of the other application methods on this list, but it's beautiful nonetheless. Plus, it's a great hack if you don't have a shimmer polish on hand. To apply, add two coats of nail polish as your base, then pack on the highlighter using a flat shader brush. Finish off the look with a no-chip top coat and you're done!
