The 8 Places You *Should* Be Wearing Highlighter

Nothing says healthy-looking skin like a gorgeous glow, but instead of overloading your complexion with shimmer, it’s time to get smart when applying highlighter. There are certain areas of the face that you want to draw attention too (and areas that you don’t), adding a spotlight to these points will flatter your bone structure and instantly brighten up your skin.

So here are those all-important points…
