I is for ... Illuminator

  1. Apply your favorite moisturizer. All good beauty routines start with hydrated skin!
  2. Dip a medium-sized makeup brush into the illuminator of your choice.
  3. Brush it onto the apples of your cheeks. Pro tip: Start at the roundest part of your cheek and move the brush upwards in a diagonal motion.
  4. Now you want to highlight your eyes. Dip a smaller makeup brush into the illuminator and swipe under your brow, start at the middle of the eyebrow and working outwards. Pro tip: Avoid the T-zone area so that you look highlighted — not shiny.
