Enhancing or adding shadows to the right facial features will liven up your face and provide an even greater 3D effect. By enhancing you can for example highlight the bone structure of the face or shape different facial areas, like cheekbones, nose or lips.
For enhancing use light-coloured products that are a couple of shades lighter than your skin tone or use pearly products. Highlighting products are generally applied to the higher facial areas: cheekbones, the bridge of the nose and the tip of the chin. A light colour can also be applied to the brow bones and the Cupid’s bow. You could use highlighting facial features in daily makeup, as it adds a lovely glow and freshness to the face.
You should use shadows sparingly to prevent the makeup looking dirty. In summer you could use Sun Powder for creating shadows. It will add a lovely sun-kissed complexion to the face. Apply a touch of powder to the temples, below cheekbones and on the chin.
Faces have different shapes and that is why it is a good idea to test how light and shadow will work best on your face. When applying different colours on the face, it is important to blend the edges carefully to make the result look natural.
It takes some time and practice to use light and shadows in makeup, so that you could use the easiest and fastest option in daily makeup. Our new product Multi Pencil is a great tool for that.
