Concealer as highlighter?

on Sep 04, 2016 @ 10:30 pm

So my concealer is just slightly lighter than my foundation and my natural skin tone. My highlighter (i got free, never actually bought my own) is actually darkker than my skin, just sparkly. So I actually prefer using my concealer more for the bridge of my nose, under eye as a highlighter.
hows that for make up look?

Yep it works! It's nothing new though, many have been doing this technique for a while now. Using concealer to "highlight" areas of the face so it gives it a nice brightened affect! From what I understand you're using method to replace your highlight, it works for a nice brightened affect on the face but i'm not sure if you'll have that shimmery glow that highlighter products give-- nonetheless, still a nice look.

What is the brand of the highlighter you got for free?

Yep, I've seen lots of people using a lighter shade of concealer to highlight sections of their face! Usually it's done to brighten under the eyes and highlight down the nose, the centre of the forehead, the cupid's bow, and a little bit on the chin -- or basically anywhere you'd like to appear a bit brighter.

I have a mini Watts Up from a Sephora gift as well. It's definitely darker than my skin (I'm extremely fair), but it looks quite nice on my brow bone or along my cheeks as long as I use a light touch.
