How to Score a Bright, Illuminated Complexion

Brightening Makeup
Brightening makeup is all the rage for the summertrends/makeup/article/summer-2010-makeup-trends/TNRjA71PmEllmhIGltNCpOo7xbmPs39q.html. Light-reflecting pigments infuse dreamy foundations, liquid highlighters light up lips and cheeks and the latest primers aim to perk up a bare complexion in a pinch. The look is ethereal, no matter your skin tone. This means that even if you choose not to tan this summer, you can still achieve a radiant glow that turns heads. Try on brightening makeup for an illuminated look in our virtual makeover studio.

For skin that looks as if it's glowing from within (even when you're short on sleep or high on stress), choose a skin primer with a slight pearlescent sheen. Apply it sparingly all over your complexion with a foundation brush and follow with light reflecting foundation and concealer, such as YSL Touché Eclat.

A sheer liquid blush offers your best fresh faced summer glow instead of powder, which can look cakey and settle into fine lines. Add a touch of liquid highlighter to the high points of your face, such as the brow bones, cheekbones, cupid's bow and center of the nose.  The goal is to make skin look dewy and glowing....avoid looking shiny or radioactive by using a light touch and applying brightening makeup with care.

Thanks for the tutorial! I have a question though: should I apply the liquid highlighter with a brush? This comment has been removed.

^I think it's better to apply liquid highlighter with your fingers. The heat helps melt the product and better absorb onto the skin. with highlighters, a little goes a long way. just my 2 cents. This comment has been removed.
