Shoulder Highlighting Is the Secret Makeup Trick That Makes Them Look Really Good

By ·

When it comes to highlighting and contouring, it seems like every day there’s a new way to do it and a new body part to do it on. The newest one that we just heard of: the shoulders. Yes, you read it right. Highlighting your shoulders so that they gleam and glow just like your cheekbones do is making its way into the beauty world and earning major points.

Chances are you’ve seen someone post a picture on Instagram of the new makeup trend. But you may not have realized that it was makeup that was giving their shoulders all that shimmer. Truth be told, it’s not good lighting or some fancy filter, but instead, layer upon layer of, usually, champagne-colored highlighter.

And, it’s not hard to do it all. Just dust your favorite powder highlighter on your shoulders using a fan brush and voila. You can also use a cream or liquid highlighter, too, but just be mindful of the top you’re wearing so nothing rubs off. Try Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit ($40) or Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection ($38) to get sexy shoulders in seconds.
