A lot of you have been asking me about highlighting, so what exactly is the deal? Basically, when you highlight a feature, you try to make it more prominent.

How To Do It
Highlighting different areas give different effects. For instance, highlighting the bridge of your nose will make it look taller while dabbing a shimmery gloss in the center of your lips will create an illusion of thicker lips. Other areas you can highlight are:

* Under the eyes
* Cheekbones
* T-zone (skip this if you have oily skin)
