The Unexpected Place Taraji P. Henson, Mandy Moore, and More Celebs Wear Highlighter
When Taraji P. Henson walked the 2019 Golden Globes red carpet in a plunging green Vera Wang gown, we couldn’t help but stare at her incredibly sparkly cleavage beaming through the low-cut silhouette. The way the makeup accentuated the contours of her neck and chest immediately made us want to put highlighter on our décolleté. If you want to follow suit (because why wouldn’t you), keep scrolling for the Empire actress’s detailed look, plus three more celebs that have made neck and chest highlighter part of their red carpet routine.
