The key to every great painting is a great brush and believe it; a good brush can turn a simple swipe of highlighter into something more radiant and magical. But...

Can you apply highlighter with fingers?

Yes, you can, especially with cream highlighters, simply because your fingers can warm the cream down, making it easier for application. However, it's not hygienic to touch your face with your fingertips, as bacteria on them will cause breakouts. Using a brush is still the safest with it comes to blending and applying your foundation, highlight and other makeup. It's cleaner and more comfortable to style your makeup with too.

Have a go with these brushes below that can help make the most out of your glow.
