Ask anyone in 2017 what makeup item they couldn't go on without, and the answer would probably be a good highlighter. It's been proven time and time again, an expertly blended cheek or cupid's bow highlight just gives that gorgeously ethereal glow like no other product can! Seriously, people love it so much, they've made tutorials on how to cover your whole face in it. Now, it seems like the rest body is the next new frontier for highlight lovers. The collar bone has already been claimed for the glow, but have you heard of ear highlighting?
It's pretty much what you would expect - apply highlighter all over your ear for a full-on #look, or target specific areas like the top for a subtler sheen. My recommendation? Try an amethyst or lavender toned highlighter for serious mermaid vibes.
Professional makeup artists have been lobe strobing it up for a while, but now beauty influencers on social media are bringing the trick into new trend territory. Instagram icon Bretman Rock was one of the first to show off his ear highlighting abilities.
I won't be shocked if other big names in the beauty community start sporting phosphorescent ears. If companies start coming out with itty-bitty ear highlighters though, I will be thoroughly shook. What do you think, collegiettes? Would you try the lobe strobe?
