Maybe it is because of the spring weather but lately, I have been COMPLETELY hooked on the dewy look. While I do like NARS Sheer Glow Foundation for achieving that, nothing beats a good luminizer like the new Make Up For Ever Uplight Face Luminizer Gel to instantly do the trick.
Uplight comes in 8 shades and 3 finishes to reflect and refract light for exceptional luminosity. The Dewy and Pearly finishes are formulated with Make Up For Ever Star Powder for an iridescent effect on the skin, while the Sparkling finish contains Make Up For Ever Star Diamond Powder for a soft shimmer.
I have #23 Pearly Golden Flesh, a warm, coppery gold a tinge darker than my NC30 skin. The oil-free formula is made of more than 70% water along with nourishing mango butter. It went on very lightweight and dried super fast so you do have to blend quick. Unlike the glittery or shimmery finish you get with certain luminizers, it added a natural, metallic sheen without looking or feeling greasy.
Uplight can also be applied to the skin on its own as a finishing touch or mixed into foundation and cream blush for an all-over radiant glow. I personally like to dab it on the eyelids, on top of the cheekbones, down the nose and right above the lip just like below.
Make Up For Ever Uplight Face Luminizer Gel is available at Sephora for $29.
