Central Telegraph - - YOU - WORDS: AM­BER MACPHER­SON

No longer do we fret about the shine on our nose — we make it even shinier. High­lighter adds a touch of lus­tre to your make-up fin­ish with a dust­ing of glit­ter and gleam.

Char­lotte Til­bury, direc­tor of global cos­metic brand Char­lotte Til­bury, says the prod­uct cre­ates an el­e­ment of ra­di­ance, apt in the lead up to the warmer weather.

“(It’s) per­fect for adding that glow­ing sum­mer god­dess fin­ish to any look,” she says.

“Ever since I started my make-up jour­ney more than 25 years ago, I’ve al­ways un­der­stood and talked about the power of the glow fil­ter.

“A beau­ti­ful can­vas of magic skin that looks lit-from-within is in­stantly more at­trac­tive to oth­ers.”

High­lighter ac­cen­tu­ates an­gles by re­flect­ing light, high­light­ing (get it now?) fea­tures by cre­at­ing an il­lu­sion of height and depth.

Be­cause it’s a prod­uct that com­ple­ments a look af­ter your nor­mal make-up is ap­plied, it matches ba­si­cally all skin tones. High­lighters come in bronze, pink, sil­ver and gold tones, or even rain­bow if you’re feel­ing a lit­tle ex­tra.

Char­lotte Til­bury’s new Bar of Gold Trio uses golden hues in three pow­ders, giv­ing beau­ties the op­tion to brush on lightly for a sub­tle shim­mer, or add more for a just­stepped-off-the-beach ap­pear­ance.

“My gor­geous new Bar of Gold Trio com­bines the most beau­ti­ful tones of one of the world’s most pre­cious min­er­als into one pal­ette so you can dress your skin in gold, any way you choose,” Char­lotte says.

“You can use any shade in­di­vid­u­ally, or wear them all to­gether for a ra­di­ant, glos­sy­look­ing com­plex­ion, cre­ate the ul­ti­mate god­dess eyes, softly sculpted cheek­bones, a sun-kissed dé­col­letage or even press on to your lips for a touch of glam­our.”

The best place to start is to ap­ply a small amount of high­lighter on the cheek­bones, just above where you’d nor­mally ap­ply blush. Sweep in a di­ag­o­nal line from be­neath the eye to­wards the nose.

Once you’re com­fort­able with how that looks, add a lit­tle to the length of your nose.

To ac­cen­tu­ate the eye area, dab some on the cor­ner of your eyes and the cen­tre of your eye­lid, or be­neath the eye­brow for an in­stant browlift.

Over­dos­ing on high­lighter can leave you look­ing overly sparkly, so it’s best to only ap­ply to a cou­ple of ar­eas on the face.

“This year it is all about glow­ing, gor­geous, su­per­star-lit skin,” Char­lotte says.
