    that comes all the way onto the apple of the cheek. Why all these gurus and ig models put glowy/shimmery highlighter so far down.
    I never put it past the corner of the eye or else I find it drags the whole look down and looks weird idk

    highlighter has been in my essentials drawer for as long as I have been wearing makeup, but the trend right now is to get as close to reflective safety tape as possible.

    My goal is rarely to trick anyone into thinking my makeup is natural, but I think the huge white blinding highlighter looks so stark and fakey.

    Maybe I'm the problem :imslow: When I do crazy makeup it's sf gore. For day to day I like matte shadows, matte foundation, matte contour and matte lips

    I don't like they way my skin looks with matte everything, I like a bit of glow. You gotta know your face.
    even worse than highlighter that is way down on the cheek, a big circle of highlight on the tip of the nose.

    I think only really specific nose shapes should bother with it, or else is just makes your nose look like a big greasy mess lol

    Highlighter, mascara, and eyeliner are the three things I always wore even before I knew what Sephora was. But yeah the trend atm is trash. I also hate when the foundation covers up everything. I like to be able to slightly see the flaws on the skin so I don't look like a doll.

    me too, probably because mommy bought us the same things. But sometimes I would use my little eyeshadow duos or quads. Even then I can remember blending in my crease and cleaning the edge.. sometimes Id go a bit raccoon with liner but only because it was the trend. Oh and my sheer berry coloured lipstick.
