You guys we have made it to the last step in a Maskcara HAC Pack. We have gone over the concepts of highlighting, contouring and why blush makes a difference. But, lets talk about the benefits of illuminator and why to use it.
When applying illuminator take a look at your face in natural light. Everywhere you see it hit your face at the highest point, that’s where you apply it. I like to focus on 3 main areas when applying illuminator:
- Above your cheekbone – take your finger and dip it into the illuminator and simply apply it to the top of your cheekbone, focusing on the top part, nearest your eye.
- Center of your nose – dabbing just a touch of illuminator here brings the focus to just the center, allowing the contouring you did in the previous step take affect.
- Cupid’s Bow – add just a little bit of illuminator right at the part of your lip that is directly under your nose, the bow.
- Other spots to place some illuminator are: below your brow, just above the brow near the center and in the center of your lips after applying your lip color.
