First of all you want that killer shine be shown in a subtle way, to avoid the frosted, unnatural look, make sure the highlighter that you’re using complements your skin tone for an understated sheen.

Use highlighter in spots that catch light, that means only use it on your cheekbones, along your temples, down the bridge of your nose, below your brow bone, in the corners of your eyes, and above your cupid’s bow. These are the spots that help enhance your natural features. If you have oily skin, you would like to skip areas like forehead or chin, as too much shine will worsen the oily condition. Remember not to spread the highlight product all over your face, or else your glow will turn into a greasy mess.

Another tip for those who have oily skin is that try to use matte bronzer, blush, or other facial products, shimmery highlighter will be your only choice. If you have breakout on your face, avoid highlighting those areas as you wouldn’t want to spotlight your blemish.

After applying the highlighter, you can blend it out with your fingers, a fan brush, or a damp makeup sponge. Make sure you blend harsh edges of highlighter well so it fades naturally and won’t leave obvious makeup lines.
