Today's question is how to apply luminous powder . Well, this is a great question because right now luminizing powders are popping up all over the beauty market and there's great reason too. They add a soft focused glow to the face, can help to minimize pores and help to liven up an uneven skin tone or a dull complexion. The tip that you need to know though is not apply it all over the face. This can sometimes lead to a shiny look or just too much glow. You want to make sure that you apply it only in certain areas.

I prefer to use a loose powder because it gives me more control. Now you need to keep the powder an illuminizing powder on the top of the cheekbones, right here on the top of the eyebrow. You can do it on top of the Cupid's Bow and even on top of the eyebrow bone right here. Now as you can see it comes off very, very intensely, so you want to make sure that you blend it in. I like to use small tiny circular strokes.

Now you can see the difference of how that instantly brightened up her face and gave a really beautiful soft look and a last tip that really helps is you can use these luminizing powders to enhance the decolletage area. It's perfect for Summer when you are wearing beautiful strapless Summer dresses. And that's it, easy and simple ways of how to apply luminous powder .

Benefit Benetint Lip Balm Spf 15

 I think I have about 4 different lip balms in my purse, and yet I have never quite gotten into the tinted lip balm craze.  Don’t get me wrong, I keep an assortment of stunning tinted lip balms in my professional kit, and use them often. Yet, I’ve never used them personally…..until now.

While on a photo shoot this weekend, I applied a natural, rosy lip to a 15 year old model and enjoyed the look so much that I decided to replicate it on myself (I was feeling quite blah, and wanted a perk-me-up!).  I dabbed on Benefit Benetint Lip Balm Spf 15, and I was shocked at how pretty it looked.  The color is a sheer wash of rose loveliness, and instantly lit up my face.  Even my cheeks looked rosier.  This lip balm is a creamy, emollient version of Benefit cosmetics famous Benetint cheek and lip stain, and not only lives up to its predecessor, but in my opinion, trumps it.  The color left a soft stain on my lips, and gave a subtle sheen.   

I am going to have to buy another jar for my kit, because my current jar is now permanently in my purse.
