When used right, illuminator is a very powerful makeup product. You know those bright-looking glowy people? They (probably) use illuminator. You can apply this face-saving liquid on its own before your finishing powder — as a second last step — or you can mix it with your foundation. Either way, it will change your life and your complexion. When applying alone, take half a pea size on your ring finger tip and dab along the top of your cheekbone, and up around the eye and below the brow. Easy! Just remember, illuminator is not highlighter (technically), because most products labelled as an illuminator will have a pearlescent element to them.
