Recapture your summer glow with a little luminiser
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.”
