DO avoid look­ing like a disco ball

You want to look like you’re glow­ing from the in­side, not like one of the Twi­light vam­pires. “If the bronzer is shim­mery, brush it lightly onto the in­ner cor­ner of your eyes, your cheek­bones, the bridge of your nose and the Cu­pid’s bow. A lit­tle goes a long way,” says Lu­coh. 

DO go for glit­ter

Add a touch of the Las Ve­gas show­girl to your look, but only a touch! “Makeup should make you look and feel beau­ti­ful, but not over­whelm. If you choose some­thing as bold as glit­ter, pick just one fea­ture to ac­cen­tu­ate, such as your eyelids.”

DO con­sider the tex­ture

The play be­tween matte and shim­mer makes a dif­fer­ence. “Matte de­flects light while sheens at­tract it,” says Lu­coh. If you have more ma­ture skin, stay away from high shine, which em­pha­sises lines. To get the ef­fect you want, use a matte shade as a base, then add a dab of glit­ter or me­tal­lic.
