very simple pick-me-up trick for any makeup look is to add a highlight.
A highlight can come in any form or consistency, and is that product
that is used simply to draw attention to the planes of the face on which
light naturally lands. Typical placement areas include the tops of the
cheek bones, under the brow-bone, at the inner corners of the eyes, down
the center of the nose, and at the Cupid's bow - very top of the upper
lip. We have found that a highlight shade may be applied to each of
these areas using the same fluffy-type brush; an eyeshadow blending
brush, or a small face-brush. Highlights are most flattering and are
best seen when they are slightly shimmery (glitter is a bit too 13-going-on-30) - this effect lends a
glow to those areas of the skin. Why yes, yes I am this naturally luminescent!
