Let’s Get Glowy

So, you’ve decided to give using a luminizer a try, and now you need to know exactly how to do it, right?  No worries!  These tips will get you “glowing” on your way for the perfect warm weather look!

  • First, choose the type of luminzer you want to use:
    • Pressed powder – dry finish
    • Cream to powder stick – dewy finish
    • Cream – dewy finish
  • Next, you’ll need the correct tools:
    • If you’re using a pressed powder type, you’ll want a fan brush
    • If you’re using a cream or cream to powder stick, you’ll want a dampened blending bud
  • Lastly, how and where to apply it:
    • Apply the luminizer to the top of your cheekbone, starting at the outer corner of your eye and work your way towards your temple a few inches
      • If using the fan brush:
        • Dust it through the pressed powder
        • Hold the back of handle for a lighter touch
        • Softly dust along the top of your cheekbone
        • Blend around the edges as needed
      • If using the damp blending bud:
        • Add a small amount of luminzer to the bud
        • Gently press the color onto the top of your cheekbone
        • Blend around the edges as needed
    • Don’t apply too close to your nose as you tend to have larger pores in that area, and the shimmer will make them more noticeable
    • Remember to apply the luminizer to the top of your cheekbone, not the front
      • Blush and bronzer goes on the front
      • Luminzer goes on top of the cheekbone to accentuate the highlight
      • Below is an example where to apply the luminzer, blush/bronzer, and contour color
