So - let's talk illuminators. They come in a variety of forms such as powder (pressed or loose), cream or liquid and are designed to add luminosity and radiance to the skin.
The most common way to use a liquid illuminator to highlight those parts of the face that need to be given an instant 'lift'. But make sure you remember to apply sparingly and blend well to avoid looking like a shiny disco ball! Glitter is good, sure - but in moderation...
After you apply foundation and powder, dab some illuminator under the arch of the eyebrows in order to lift the appearance of your brow bones. To make the cheeks appear more youthful, add a dash of to the top of the cheekbones (just above where you apply blush). For fuller lips? At the top of our cupid's bow. It can also be applied on the bridge of your nose, forehead and chin - wherever you need an instant fix.
Illuminator also gives your skin an overall dewy glow. Lightly dust a powder illuminator all over the face, or take a cream or liquid illuminiser and mix it with your liquid foundation. You will look lovely and shimmery - not shiny! - Lucy
