Every girl desires that 'pregnancy glow' that moms-to-be get in their second trimester. The American Pregnancy Association explains that pregnancy glow is caused by an increase in hormones and oilier skin.
But, it turns out, you don't actually need to get knocked up to get the glow. All that's needed is a littler highlighter.
You might be wondering: What is highlighter?
Highlighter is a powder or liquid makeup applied to the face to give your skin a shimmered glow. It basically draws light to areas on your face making you look like a dewy goddess. When highlighter is placed on your eyebrow arches, it can make you look younger. And, when applied on your cupids bow, it can make your lips look extra full. Highlighters can be found in liquid, powder, stick, or pot form. They also vary from sheer to shimmery finishes, gold to peachy tones, and more afforable options to designer brands.
The secret to getting that perfect dewy glow is not just about having the right highlighter, it's knowing how to appy it as well. We love the tutorial by beauty vlogger, Desi Perkins. She demonstrates exactly how to apply it, flawlessly. To take it off, all you need is a good makeup remover.
