Michelle Williams shows us how to make our boob area glow
Tue, 11 October 2011 1:16PM
Michelle Williams does not have a big rack. I’m not trying to be cruel, Primps; I’m just being honest. But having a smaller sized chest is not a bad thing, especially when you know how to make it look glowy and defined in a low-cut frock. And Michelle Williams certainly knows how to make her chest look a little perkier than it really is.
Do you see it? That bright and glowy line down the centre of her boobs fooling us all into thinking she actually has a HUGE rack and the massive cleavage that goes along with said large breasts? Yes? Well, that’s simply the result of well-applied illuminator. True story.
Now, does your chest sit on the smaller side of the boob fence, Primps? Do you want it to look bigger and glowier than it really is like Michelle’s? Then…
HERE’S THE TYPE OF PRODUCT YOU NEED TO OWN:
Clockwise from top left: Prestige Cosmetics Sun Baked Mineral Highlighter, $29.95, The Nude by Nature Soft Focus Illuminator, $22.95, Benefit Finding Mr. Bright, $45, CLINIQUE Up-Lighting Liquid Illuminator, $48 and Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Illuminating Pearls, $14.95.
AND HERE’S WHAT TO DO WITH IT: Because you want to create the illusion of a fuller cup, don’t apply illuminating products all over your chest. This will only make the entire area glow and not that faux cleavage of yours. Instead, apply the product in a thin line down the middle of your boobs . Then, and this is something you MUST do, blend the outer edges of the product slightly. You don’t want it to look obvious, so it’s important the product mingles with your skin. Oh, and if you’re sporting a neckline as low as Michelle Williams, you can also take the product slightly underneath your boobs to help ‘lift’ them. Sneaky, huh?
TIP: If you’re using a liquid highlighter, you can heighten the glowy effect by dusting a powder illuminiser over the top.
Do you highlight your boob area?
If so, what products do you use?
Or, will you be making your chest area glowy like Michelle Williams’ from now on?
