Everybody wants to look glowing and bring light to the right area of their faces. No one wants to look so shiny that they physically reflect light, so applying highlighter can be a precarious little tango. One step too far and people might have to wear sunglasses just in case they catch the glare from your face... We kid, but we still want you to know the simplest, most subtle yet effective way to highlight, so all of our MIMI beauties are radiating beauty outwardly as well as inwardly.


Here's the skinny on highlighter:

1. Use a small or medium size brush to apply.

2. Place highlighter on top of cheekbones, center of nose, cupids bow, peak of chin, collar bones

3. Dust very little on forehead
