ADD OPALESCENCE TO CREATE A SHEEN THAT’S A TAD MORE HIGH-BEAM THAN GLOSS.
HIGHLIGHT RIGHT “Choose a highlighter shade that enhances your skin tone,” says Derek, who prefers silver or champagne for fairer skin and bronze, gold or copper for medium to dark complexions. Then apply it strategically: “I like to tap highlighter onto the tops of cheekbones, at the temples, and on the eyelids for what I call the surprise effect; you catch a glimpse of glimmer when you blink.”
Derek also suggests dotting highlighting cream under and over the brow to create the illusion of a lift, at the inner corners of the eyes to wake them up, and on the centre of the lips to give some fullness. BEDECK YOUR BODY “Mix a few drops of highlighting liquid into a generous squirt of body lotion, then apply anywhere skin will be visible, like your legs, shoulders, or decolletage,” Derek says. DIY BLING RING Paint eight fingertips with a pastel cream colour, then paint just your ring fingers with a shimmery version of the same shade (think pale pink with a rosegold accent).
