THE GLOW-UP

You dew you.

ELLE (Canada) - - BEAUTY - VIC­TO­RIA DIPLACIDO

MAKEUP ARTIST CHAR­LOTTE TIL­BURY is on a mis­sion to il­lu­mi­nate. “Ev­ery­one needs to glow,” the celebrity beauty whis­perer tells me, stand­ing in a soft-pink room ded­i­cated to her new Glow­gasm range of creamy pow­der and liq­uid high­lighters in her of­fice in SoHo, N.Y. “If you think about it, all the times that you glow are: on a hol­i­day, on a beach, af­ter sex...[it’s] hap­pi­ness, laugh­ter, fun. And who doesn’t want that ev­ery sin­gle day?” Beats me! For nat­u­ral-look­ing high­lighter place­ment that tricks the eye into think­ing ev­ery­thing is inches higher than it is, ap­ply di­rectly to the top of the cheek­bones (but not too close to the eyes)—“If you’ve gone off the bone, you know it’s not right,” says Til­bury—along the nose (but not on the tip) and in the in­ner cor­ners of the eyes. Of course, the best base for any makeup is glow­ing skin, and the key to achiev­ing it sans high­lighter is proper sk­in­care. In the morn­ing, use brightening vi­ta­min C prod­ucts; look for L-ascor­bic acid or tetra­hexylde­cyl ascor­bate on the la­bel. At night, ex­fo­li­ate; I find acid-based ex­fo­liants, as op­posed to phys­i­cal scrubs, the most di­rect path to a JLo-es­que glow.
