Ever wonder how the fresh-face beauties of the world manage to look impossibly flawless with seemingly no makeup? Well, there may be more than meets the eye. Highlighters are quickly replacing blush and bronzers in the makeup bags of our favorite It girls. These illuminators come in a variety of forms from pearly cream to opalescent powder, but they all essentially do the same thing: accentuate the angles of the face. To use, dap the product down the bridge of your nose, on the highest part of your cheekbones, across the brow bone and finish with a touch on the cupid’s bow (indent above lips). We promise, this no-makeup makeup trick will quickly become a daily ritual.
