Highlighter is a great beauty product that can make your face look more radiant, fresh, and sculpted. It helps to visually adjust the shape of your face and make it more prominent.

However, most people don't know how to apply it correctly, which is why they spend a lot of time on makeup but are ultimately dissatisfied with the result. Lisa Eldridge, a professional makeup artist who has worked with many Western stars, shared a life hack on TikTok that will help you apply highlighter evenly and quickly.

Excessive use of highlighter can make the skin look oily and make the shine appear unnatural. To avoid this problem, there are many different techniques for applying this cosmetic product, but one of the easiest and most effective is the "butterfly method."

The butterfly method

"Honestly, I think the hands are often the best makeup tool," Eldridge says in her video tutorial. So when she has just a few seconds on set to touch up a star's makeup, she uses her revolutionary method.

  1. First, apply a little liquid highlighter to the side of your hand (pinky side);
  2. Rub your hands together to warm up the product. This way it will go on more evenly;
  3. Bend your hands slightly and press their sides to your temples;
  4. To set the shimmer, you can pat the product lightly into the skin with your fingertips.

Some people may have a fair question about how to use this method on themselves, because Eldridge works with a model. TikTok users thought the same thing and asked about it in the comments.

The makeup artist answered that in order to use this method on yourself, you need to do the same thing, but apply the highlighter not near the little finger, but on the side of the palm near the thumb.
