Beauty Tip: a cup of coffee for your face
For those busy days, weeks, months when you can't remember what a good night's sleep actually feels like, let this tip be the light that never goes out.
The general rule of thumb for tired skin is to hydrate, don't overwhelm it with heavy or pigment-soaked products and to bring light to areas where shadows are most prominent. Enter the Shimmer Skin Illuminator.
Formulated with an intensely hydrating base, the Shimmer Skin Illuminator works quietly to soothe and replenish sleep-deprived, dull and dehydrated skin while adding a healthy (and well-rested) radiance. Unlike typical illuminators, we've specifically infused the liquid base with revolutionary microparticles that bounce and reflect light without any traces of glitter or makeup. You can use it as an all over primer, mix it with your foundation, or in this case, apply strategically to different parts of your face to wake-up a tired complexion!

So, once you have applied your moisturiser and LB Cream, give your exhausted skin the shot of espresso it's craving:
1. Squeeze a small amount of the Shimmer Skin Illuminator on the back of your hand and warm it gently with your fingertips.
2. Using a quick dabbing motion, apply it along the top of your cheekbones, stopping in line with your pupil when looking directly into the mirror. This will lift and plump your cheeks without dragging them down.
3. Dab a small amount on your cupids bow, middle of your chin and down the bridge of your nose. This will draw light to the centre of your face and enliven your complexion.
4. Last of all, dark circles around your eyes are always the biggest tell-tale sign of fatigue. Combat them by taking the padded part of your pinkie fingers with a small amount of product and gently dab it into the corner of your eyes where your tear duct and nose meet. This will brighten them by bouncing light out of the darkest part of your face and energising your complexion completely.
