Finding the right highlighter, and the right way to use it, might be the holy grail of the winter makeup maven.  If winter’s dry air and cold wind leaves you feeling dull and uninspired, you’ll definitely want to learn about how to get glowing skin using a face highlighter.

There are so many face highlighters on the market nowadays that can alter the shape of your face, downplay a wide nose and accent high cheekbones.  There are three key areas to apply highlighter: the cheekbones and temples, the eyes, and the cupid’s bow.

Have you been using the techniques of highlight and contour?
