Not all of us are blessed with defined cheekbones but luckily there are plenty of great highlighting products that can help you achieve the glow and definition in one easy sweep.

Highlighters have reflective properties that lift your features and focus the eye on the parts of your face that you wish to enhance. I have used a number of different products including creamy ones that are great for applying throughout the day and give a subtle shine, while more recently I have been loving Bobbi Brown brick powder that blends several shades that give an natural healthy flush but with more oomph than creamy ones.

I have always been advised to use a fan brush like this Laura Mercier one (I’ve had this one for about 4 years) and once picking up the powder and shaking excess off, glide it around the eye area in a shape of a letter C. So trace just above the eyebrow from the inner side all the way round the eye socket to the top of the cheek bone. I also sometimes dab it just under the eyebrow line and on cuspids bow. They key is not to go overboard and end up looking plastic and shiny, highlighters are there to enhance and not to take over.
