Use a lighter shade of concealer
A lighter concealer is a makeup faux pas but not when it’s used as a highlighter. So if you have that concealer that was far too light for your complexion, you can totally use it as a highlighter on the high points of your face. Just use a stick concealer and take some product on a brush. Apply it below your brow bone, on your cheekbones, under your eyes, in the corners of your eyes and lightly, on top of your cupid’s bow to ensure that your face looks dewy.

Use a pale-coloured shimmery eye shadow
Can’t seem to find the right highlighter? No worries! Instead, just use a pearl coloured or ivory-toned eye shadow to strobe your face. These work well, especially if they’re pigmented enough and also come with a hint of shimmer in them. We told you—makeup was all about playing it smart.

Use a light-toned blush
Want to know what’s another way of using a blush? As a highlighter! If you happen to have a pale pink blush with champagne undertones, it might just work perfectly as a highlighter. Sure, it’ll be more of an evening look but this one’s just what you need for a no—makeup makeup kinda strobed look.
