Bollywood actors are adept at creating a signature look for themselves. Winged liner makes you think immediately of Sonakshi Sinha, sculpted cheeks makes you think of Kareena Kapoor Khan and dewy makeup instantly conjures up images of Aditi Rao Hydari.

When we spotted the beautiful Tamannaah Bhatia, we could not help but marvel at her astute sense in wearing highlighter. She knows just where to dab a little shimmer to make her features look multi-dimensional.

A dab of highlighter at the top of your cheekbones that you extend to the area below your brow gives you an instant face lift and adds a youthful look. We love the finely milled formula of the Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter and suggest you use this one to get the look.

A hint of shimmer on the inner corner of your eyes will make them pop, and you don’t need much eye makeup. A few sweeps of mascara and you’re set!

You could also add a few drops of oil or liquid highlighter to your foundation to get an overall dewy glow. Girls with oily skin, beware! Make sure you use this tip after you have experimented with what works for your skin.

Highlighter that is applied in a thin line along the bridge of the nose will give the illusion of a straighter nose.

Don’t let your lips feel left out of the shimmer party! Apply your lipstick as usual and dab a smidge of highlighter on the fullest part of your lower lip and below you Cupid’s bow on your upper lips. Two things happen by doing this: your lips will look fuller and you will instantly achieve a shimmery lip colour with your regular lipstick!
