My favorite tool for intense highlighters is not to use them.
Most times none, since I avoid intense highlighters; BUT if I were faced with that, say like my Fenty Kilowatt Foil Highlighters (which I rarely use because they are intense), I tend to use a light tap on Sonia G’s Face Two or Wayne Goss’s n°2 (black discounted series) brushes.
Highlighter can’t be too intense. LOL I like the e. l. f Highlighting Brush.
Rachel, the elf highlighting brush has got to be an HG of makeup brushes, affordable, perfect for powders!
I agree! I own a few.
Thankfully, I own 2 fan brushes: one standard for most highlighters, the other more wispy for my high intensity highlighters, because I have zero desire to be “seen from space”! I really only need that one for my 2 Ofra highlighters, though.
Rephr fan brush
I, too use a fan brush, but it’s a bigger one and really disperses the color. Or I will use my ELF small stipple brush, highlighter brush, or my fingers.
A sponge but not dampened. 🤷🏻♀️
As I don’t wear highlighters, I can’t really say – but I guess I would use a fan brush – perhaps one with a bit of an angle to it.
Sonia Kushuk #148 highlighter brush. Discontinued. The Bdellium Tools Studio #941 tapered is similar in shape. A brush that is densely packed to start, tapered thin, and wispy at the end.
I use a fan brush.
