Instead of using a bright highlighter under your eyebrow, Shira advises using a softer colour, which she claims is much more flatteringCredit: TikTokfirstname.lastname@example.org
Beauty fan Shira explained that women often make a big mistake when applying highlighter, and not only is it not very flattering, but it will make you look dated too.
Sharing her advice on social media, Shira shared a clip with the caption ‘If you were born in the 80’s and early 90’s you were probably taught to highlight your brow bone with a bright white frosty shadow.’
The beauty whizz sarcastically added: ‘The whiter and more frosty the eyeshadow the better.’
She then continued: ‘This eyeshadow look definitely had its moment but using a warm champagne toned eyeshadow to highlight your brow bone is way more flattering and less dated.
‘Cool toned eyeshadows can also look sallow on the skin while a warmer time blends cohesively.’
Demonstrating her advice, Shira used a bright highlighter under one eyebrow, as she explained: “Make-up mistakes to avoid if you’re over 35.
“Instead of highlighting your brow bone with the super white and bright shade, yikes, use a warmer tone shadow to only highlight the arch of your brow bone.”
Under the other eyebrow, she then used a warmer eyeshadow colour, as she added: “Your brows will look lifted and snatched, without looking so dated.”
Showing off the different highlighters on her skin, Shira revealed that the simple trick can make a big difference to your face.
The TikTok clip, which was posted under the username @simply.shira, has clearly left many open-mouthed, as it has quickly amassed 26,100 views.
Social media users were thankful for the advice, with many beauty fans taking to the comments to express this.
One person said: “Thank you for teaching me how to do makeup on my now 32 year old face.
“Lately the stuff I used to do throughout my 20s just doesn’t look right anymore.”
Another added: “Ohhh this is a great tip!
“I use a warmer tone but I don’t focus it right at the arch.”
A third commented: “Great demo!”
Whilst someone else shared: “Love this!!”
