Contouring may be the makeup trend of 2015 so far, working its way into the red carpet routines of some of our favorite celebs, but it definitely has its pros and cons! It can be hard to achieve a perfect complexion under the heat of the summer sun while layered makeup looks can quickly take their toll on sensitive or grease-prone skin.
Thankfully, there's a new alternative: introducing the lightweight Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator by L'Oréal Paris, a quick and easy all-in-one solution to all of your contouring and highlighting needs! The quad includes four easy application powder shades to give your skin a gorgeous glow without any heaviness while being so simple to apply!
Give the glow a go with our step by step guide...
Get the glow
Make sure you always moisturize your skin thoroughly: healthy skin is the perfect base for any makeup look! Next, apply an illuminating primer to even out your skin tone and provide a light-reflecting layer to your complexion.
Allow the primer to fully absorb into your skin, then smooth on a hydrating BB Cream in place of your regular foundation: this will nourish and even the skin tone whilst letting your skin continue to breath. Again, leave the cream to sink into your skin to help the powder glide on more easily.
Use a clean, soft application brush to dust one of the lighter shades from the Powder Glow quad along the high points of your face: the bridge of your nose, your forehead and along your cheekbones.
Change brushes and dust one of the darker shades into the hollows of your cheeks, on either side of your nose, and below the jawline. Then use one of the medium shades in the quad - or your usual face powder - to blend the powders gently together for a soft, luminous complexion.
Now that you've got your glow down to perfection, team it with natural daytime makeup for a summer perfect beauty look!
