What it is, what it is: he’s the little secret (not so secret) of the best experts in beauty, required in the backstage of the walkways, makes to the difference in any makeup. Skin alive and outline well done are some of the benefits of an illuminator well applied.
Despite unanimous on the best beauty kits, not all illuminators are created equal: before the minor slip, turn into a misstep on the make. We talked to the Benefit in Brazil’s official makeup artist, Mariana Ishizaka, to save his skin (literally) and we give the path of the stones to choose and apply the illuminator. The task of raze’s on his own, ok?
On the Texture
According to ehuacom, there are three types of illuminators: liquid, cream and powder. The usual is that girls from dry skin to avoid powder products, while those who have oily skin dispense cream versions. Maham approves liquid formulas that work with any type of skin and yet can be mixed to the base or to the moisturizer.
When applying liquid or creamy illuminators, you have a free pass to use the fingertip of the middle and/or ring with Pat. Order a powder brush product equal to the blush.
Sparkling or opaque – those who come usually in pen format and are very pale? Note: the opaque are great to complement skin correction: “Can use them before the correction, helping to use less product in the hour of coverage,” he explains. But no illuminators very clear, we explain really cute how to choose the right one for your skin tone right now! Nobody wants that panda effect inverted.
Oh, and it’s ok to use two illuminators in the same make, see? Corrected with the opaque, stain you Dick in cintilância (temperate, please!) in zone C, Cupid’s bow, bridge of the nose.
What Color of Illuminator Should I Use for My Skin Tone?
The rule is clear: colder tones married best with white skin and hottest nuances, who have darker skin. Just imagine: an illuminator gold would be more for a blush to Marina Ruy Barbosa, whereas for someone like Lupita Nyong’o would be the final shot for a make-up light. With the help of Mariana, esmiuçamos:
Clear Skins: the white can use illuminators with silver background (colder) without fear of being whitish
Midtone skins the Brunettes: is the most democratic of all tone and a little uneasy with any product color.Mariana Trump: illuminator champagne.
Black Skins: pass away from the Pearly pink or they may end up greyish the skin. Beyoncé Lupita Nyong’o, the best color of illuminator is pulled to the brass or gold.
How to Use the Illuminator to Give Dimension to the Face?
The illuminator does not live from his solo career. As any fan of Kim Kardashian knows, the product comes always married to an outline of face or bronzer. When the two are used at strategic points creates an effect of light and shadow, redrawing the face (read, tapering nose, cheekbones, etc). Explain:
Tune up Your Nose
To create this illusion, light the bridge of the nose (the straight part and the central bone). Trace a line of illuminator from the top of the bridge (just below the eyebrows) until a little before the tip of the nose. The extra load of light will make this area “jump” of the face, giving the impression of a thinner nose. The trick works so well that we have a dossier of how thin the nose with makeup, run there!
The same idea to decrease the nose also applies to the face. Light the central area: between the eyebrows, nose bridge, “v” on top of the upper lips (called the bow of Cupid) and Chin. Tune the apples using a contour of face faded in just below the bone of apples, the ear until half of the face (to identify this region make a pout.Where there is more “bottom” is the place where the contour).
Highlight the Look
To highlight the look, the ideal is to light below the eyebrows, especially below the arch. Try also to use a little bit of the illuminator at the inside corner of the eye to give a touch on the eye black smudges.
Give more life to the skin
Recipe for that skin “woke up beautiful”: mix a little of the liquid illuminator and liquid foundation that you use normally. Increase the load by applying illuminator especially on temples and cheekbones. Those who have oily skin should avoid passing the product on the whole face. In this case, apply the mixture of illuminator base only in zone C (temples and top of the apples).
