Highlighter Tips for Mature Skin

The Secret to Radiant Skin: Highlighting for Mature Skin

A question I frequently get from our customers is whether applying highlighter will draw more attention to fine lines around the eyes. The truth is, when applied correctly, highlighter simply makes our skin look more healthy and radiant. Our goal, after all, is not to erase and hide our naturally aging skin but to give it the healthiest look it deserves - and nothing provides more glow than a bit of cream highlighter!

Cream Highlighter vs. Powder Highlighter for Mature Skin

For mature skin, opt for a cream or liquid highlighter. These formulas are more forgiving and blend seamlessly into the skin, giving a natural, dewy finish without emphasizing fine lines.

The Right Amount of Shimmer in Highlighters

While a little shimmer can give you a beautiful glow, too much can accentuate skin texture and appear unnatural. Avoid highlighters with large, glittery particles and opt for ones with a subtle sheen. Customers often remark on Minori's cream highlighter for its super glowy effect, with fine pearls that create a radiant look without being overly shimmery.

Highlighting the High Points of Your Face

Focus on areas where light naturally hits your face, such as the tops of your cheekbones, brow bone, and the bridge of your nose. A touch of highlighter on your cupid's bow can also create the illusion of fuller lips.

Blending Your Highlighter for a Seamless Finish

Blending is key to a natural-looking highlight. Use a damp beauty sponge or your fingers to gently tap and blend the highlighter into your skin. A highlighter with a cream-to-powder formula, like Minori's, is much easier to blend and less likely to leave a noticeable "highlighter streak" on your cheekbone.

Prepping Your Skin Before Applying Highlighter

Hydrated, well-moisturized skin provides the perfect canvas for makeup. Before applying highlighter, ensure your skin is hydrated. I love to apply highlighter directly over my still damp skin after applying sunscreen.
