A good highlighter is a foolproof way to give your complexion a healthy glow, but when mid-summer humidity leaves you sweaty, your highlight gets so shiny, that it looks like you just finished a workout. Perspiration and shine don't mix because you're battling two different textures that, in essence, will accidentally create the same finish on the skin. Make-up experts suggest if it’s warm out, skip highlighting all together during the day and cheat the light in the evening. If you’re going to experience separation anxiety from skipping highlighter, here are a few tricks to get the product to stay on and enhance your complexion’s glow, rather than just make you look sweatier.
To avoid a ‘tin man effect’, pros recommend not using metallic highlighters because it will look too heavy during the day, especially during the early afternoon when the sun is at its peak. Instead, use cream-based highlighters, that include multiple cream formulas and flatter a number of skin tones, to add a touch of radiance.
When it comes to actually applying the product, it is recommended to use a medium-sized, dual-fiber brush on the highest part of your cheek. This picks up enough product to give a glow around the cheek rather than a strip of light on top. But, if your skin runs on the oily side, keep highlighting minimal, and save it for evening.
For extra reassurance, you can spritz on a setting spray to help your make-up hold up in the humidity; it will set the product in place and add radiance without the weight of a powder highlighter. Setting sprays hold make-up pretty well in the heat for smudge proof wear.
