03 Dec Makeup Review, Swatches: Hourlgass Cosmetics Ambient Lighting Palette – How To Get Highlighted Cheekbones
This holiday season, Hourlgass Cosmetics has taken (in my opinion) one of their best products and created a limited-edition trio of face-flattering shades.
You don’t need an actual candle anymore to create your perfect lighting! The Ambient Lighting Palette ($58.00) is all you need!
Three shades to imbibe skin with a multidimensional glow. Two existing shades along with one new limited-edition one include:
(New) Incandescent Light – A pearlescent powder that highlights the cheekbones & brightens
the complexion with a celestial glow
Dim Light – A neutral peachy-beige shade that blurs imperfections & highlights for a radiant
complexion with a balance of warm and cool tones
Radiant Light – A sunkissed golden beige powder that enhances the overall complexion with
Here are some professional tips for highlighting from makeup artist Moani Lee:
“Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette infuses skin with a multidimensional luminescence that’s perfect for the party season.
Using the Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush, dust Dim Light all over the complexion but focus on the center of the face to soften imperfections. Follow by adding Radiant Light as a contour under the cheekbones, on the temples and on either side of the bridge of the nose to add a subtle warmth.
Finish off with a light dusting of Incandescent Light on the tops of the cheekbones, under the brow, on the center of the eyelids, the bridge of the nose and the cupid’s bow to brighten the complexion and create a celestial glow. For deeper skin tones, it’s best to test the product on your skin and make adjustments by mixing Radiant Light to add warmth.”
This product is a must-have for the season! It’s like having a lighting technician of your very own! If being in your best light at all times is of any interest to you, then go and rock the Ambient Lighting Palette.
