How to highlight the high-points of your face.

How to highlight the high-points of your face.

Think of the Skin Illuminator Shimmer and the LB Cream as a team. They work better when they are together.

They've got a lot in common because they are gentle, paraben-free, not tested on animals and good for all skin types - but each one works a little bit differently.

Watch our step-by-step tutorial on how to achieve enviably fresh, dewy skin with makeup artist Victoria Barron's radiance-enhancing tricks.

STEP 1: Moisturise and tint

Apply an amount of The Base LB Cream to your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, forehead and chin. The key is to blend with your fingers or use a large circular brush so the skin and LB Cream become one. This will immediately brighten and lift your complexion.

STEP 2: Accentuate

Using a delicate brush, apply The Base Skin Illuminator shimmer apply to any part of your face you want to accentuate and bring forward. Tops of your cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, across the cupids bow of the lips, inner corners of the eye and eyelids. This will give you that fresh summery skin glow and is one of the best anti-ageing trick in the book.

TIP

Do NOT illuminize your whole face or you will be too shiny. Also try to avoid blemishes (you don't want to highlight them!)
