Re­cap­ture your sum­mer glow with a lit­tle lu­miniser

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Stellar - - Contents -

Keep your glow post-sum­mer with lu­miniser.

Ara­di­ant, dewy com­plex­ion con­veys good health – and here’s the good news: it’s rel­a­tively easy to fake. First, pick a prod­uct. “Pressed pow­ders are the eas­i­est to use as you can build the in­ten­sity and eas­ily blend them,” ex­plains Noni Smith, make-up di­rec­tor for L’oréal Paris Aus­tralia.

“Liq­uids and creams can be mixed with foun­da­tion or used un­der pow­der high­lighters for ex­tra stay­ing power, while crayons, sticks and pens of­fer pr pre­ci­sion ap­pli­ca­tion.”

Now, get glow­ing. Ap­ply where the lig light hits the face: the bridge of the nose, to tops of cheek­bones, above eye­brow arches, th the Cupid’s bow, and the in­ner cor­ner of the eye to help open and brighten the ar area. Smith ad­vises adding lu­miniser to th three of­ten-missed spots: the sides of the fa face just above the jaw­line, the sides of the h neck and your clav­i­cles.

“Un­less your skin is su­per dry, don’t use liq­uid high­lighter in the T-zone,” Smith says. In­stead, she sug­gests us­ing a small brush and translu­cent pow­der to blot ei­ther side of the nose, in­clud­ing where your cheek meets your nose, the mid­dle of your fore­head and chin. “Keep­ing those ar­eas more matte,” she says, “will give the high­lighter more im­pact and stop you from look­ing too shiny.”
