In case you thought that professional makeup artists had secrets up their sleeves that the rest of us could barely fathom, think again – sometimes, the most amazing beauty solutions are so simple, it’s hard to believe we didn’t think of them ourselves.
In terms of getting Kate Moss’s skin looking ultra-luminous, makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury told Elle.com that “even mere mortal complexions can be perfected.” Tilbury layers foundation on first and then adds a couple light dabs of moisturizer along the cheekbones.
“The extra layer gives a beautiful sheen to the skin,” Tilbury told the news source. “I use this trick on models just before they go on the catwalk.”
If you’re looking for an alternative to this sort of skin-illuminating trick, pick up a cream highlighter and see what kind of magic ensues. Dab a small amount on your cheekbones, temples, browbones and your cupid’s bow for a glossy, polished-looking sheen.
