Beauty How To's

by BY JAHNAVI PRASAD for ELLE.IN

Wondering how the pin-up girls seem to have perfectly porcelain skin that reflects light? One of the many reasons may just be the trick of an illuminator. When applied correctly, it gives the skin that gorgeous glow and reflects light flawlessly. Here’s how to do it right.

STEP ONE: Begin on a clean face prepped with foundation and concealer. Ensure you’ve covered your dark circles well before you begin applying the illuminator.

Wondering how the pin-up girls seem to have perfectly porcelain skin that reflects light? One of the many reasons may just be the trick of an illuminator. When applied correctly, it gives the skin that gorgeous glow and reflects light flawlessly. Here’s how to do it right.

STEP ONE: Begin on a clean face prepped with foundation and concealer. Ensure you’ve covered your dark circles well before you begin applying the illuminator.

STEP THREE: The most essential step of applying an illuminator is blending. Make sure you do not blend it out too far; this will cause the light to diffuse and make the face look shiny, instead of giving it those dewy highlights we’re looking for. Blend following the curve of the ‘C’ by lightly tapping with fingertips.

Done! Follow with the rest of your make-up, or just leave it for a clean, dewy look.
