Chella, You (Hi)light Up My Life...

Press Sample.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

Contouring.  Kim Kardashian made it a household name, but it's been around forever.  Basically, it's about using light and shadow to create illusion.  Light brings things to the forefront and makes them appear bigger.  Dark moves things to the background and makes them appear smaller.  Even if you don't want to create dramatic changes to your face, there are places on your face where the light naturally hits, and you can accentuate or change them with some highlight, like the Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter.

This highlighter is so convenient because it's in a pencil form - so easy to place exactly where you want it.  Yet, it's very creamy and easy to blend.

Now that I've been trying to pay a little more attention to my brows, I find that I like a little bit of highlighter under the arch of my brow, and sometimes above the arch of my brow.  This creates the illusion of lift in the eye - something my aging eyes can use!
I also like to apply a little highlight on the bridge of my nose and on my cupid's bow.  Sometimes, I'll put some in the middle of my forehead and chin, or the top of my cheeks, though a powder is easier for me to use in larger areas.

If you wear glasses like I do, a highlight can help bring your eyes out from hiding behind them.
