Think about all the times you’ve seen girls whose faces seem to light up in the sun. No, they aren’t some sort of supernatural wonder of magic and power – they’re wearing the right kind of illuminating makeup blends to have just enough sheen without appearing sparkly. This season, when you’re getting ready for a day on the town, why not consider filling out your complexion with just a splash of radiance? Matte is in, but there’s no denying the beauty of a subtle highlight.
If you’ve never used a product for a natural glow, read on for a few beauty tricks that will help you get a level of luster that will dazzle in the sunlight:
Little strokes where it counts
Achieving a little radiance isn’t about heaping on products with reckless abandon. When you’re going for a little bit of glow, try to keep a “less is more” mantra in mind when applying an illuminator. Picture where the sun normally touches your face, and start there: the crest of your cheekbones, the tip of your cupid’s bow and the top of the brow line. If you’re looking for an all-over radiance, extend the illuminator along your jaw line, again remembering that a little bit will go a long way.
Blend it with a bronzer
Use just a brush full of bronzer and highlight the perimeters of your face. Add a dash of powdered illuminator to the mix and you’ll end up with a soft glimmer. Pair this with a knit sweater and the BABY-G BA110-7A3 watch for a look that will keep you warm and glowing all day long.
