“Pre-Highlighting” Is The Secret To Truly Glowing Skin

In the Morning of Life

by Thomas Moore

In the morning of life, when its cares are unknown,
And its pleasures in all their new lustre begin,
When we live in a bright-beaming world of our own,
And the light that surrounds us is all from within;
Oh 'tis not, believe me, in that happy time
We can love, as in hours of less transport we may; —
Of our smiles, of our hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime,
But affection is truest when these fade away.

When we see the first glory of youth pass us by,
Like a leaf on the stream that will never return,
When our cup, which had sparkled with pleasure so high,
First tastes of the other, the dark-flowing urn;
Then, then in the time when affection holds sway
With a depth and a tenderness joy never knew;
Love, nursed among pleasures, is faithless as they,
But the love born of Sorrow, like Sorrow, is true.

In climes full of sunshine, though splendid the flowers,
Their sighs have no freshness, their odour no worth;
\‘Tis the cloud and the mist of our own Isle of showers
That call the rich spirit of fragrancy forth.
So it is not \‘mid splendour, prosperity, mirth,
That the depth of Love's generous spirit appears;
To the sunshine of smiles it may first owe its birth,
But the soul of its sweetness is drawn out by tears.

The Weeknd Dropped A New Album
Abel Tesfaye’s fourth album has officially dropped and two things are automatically clear: it’s a total banger and the majority of it is all about ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid. After Hours sings forlornly about his ex diving headfirst into the regret he’s experienced since their breakup. Fans are already directing all the lyrics, but it’s pretty obvious […]

Like all makeup users know, it’s rather difficult keeping a natural highlighter on. Why you makeup-free people ask? Because all that natural highlighter pretty much melts away after you’ve finished your makeup. Then you’re forced to re-apply it to your skin with a cream illuminator or shine stick. And even that might disappear by lunchtime.

 

As it turns out, there’s a clever makeup hack to achieve a natural-looking glow that radiates through foundation, concealer, and setting powder. According to Nikki DeRoest, a celebrity makeup artist, the trick is called pre-highlighting. It’s even a major skincare secret among her star-studded clientele.

 

“The single technique that makes skin look naturally radiant, both in person through an iPhone camera, is implementing the pre-highlight,” she told Refinery29 of her now-signature glowy aesthetic (as seen on celebs and supermodels like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hailey Bieber, and Shanina Shaik).

DeRoest told Refinery29 the technique is straightforward: you simply highlight the skin before makeup. “After I apply a priming moisturizer to the skin— the Bobbi Brown Vitamin-Enriched Face Base is my go-to — I’ll rub liquid highlighter all over the cheekbones, up on the forehead, down the nose, and a little bit on the chin,” she explains. “I’ll either use the Chantecaille Lumiere highlighter or By Terry’s Brightening CC serum, which are both illuminating liquids that coat the skin with light-reflecting pigments. Next, I’ll move onto foundation and concealer.”
