Glowy Skin is a Highlighter Away!

27 Aug

There is almost nothing I love more than glowy skin! It emanates health, vitality, and well-being! Besides honoring the all-important hydration quotient and diligent sun-blocking, a great highlighter can be your skin’s best friend! The light will catch those highlighted points beautifully,  imparting dimension to the skin and a luminous sheen!

A subtle but effective highlighter is the iconic YSL Touche Éclat. You can use it to emphasize favorite features or conceal shadows. Skin goes from looking tired and sallow to radiant and energized.

Key Highlighting points:
Draw a line down the bridge of your nose (but not the tip), brow bone (eye lift illusion), tear ducts (bigger brighter, more-wellrested eyes), underneath the eye (banish those dark circles), across the top of your cheekbones (cheekbone enhancement, face lift illusion), and around the center of the outer top lip and the outer bottom lip (for a fuller pout). Then gently pat pat pat until they are well-blended. The line down the bridge of the nose is also a great trick to make your nose look straighter and more narrow. Highlighter is best saved as the last part of your makeup regiment, except for the under-eyes, which should be done before your concealer.
