I’m a big fan of creating points of light on my face. Not only does it make you look more alive, but it adds subtle contour without going too crazy on products like bronzers and highlighters. Sometimes the placement is wrong, or it’s too dark—and depending on your skin tone, you may wish to create those points of light in less obvious ways. That’s what makes products like the new Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer a real gem. It’s a very forgiving product that adds a little luminosity to the skin, but it’s so whisper soft, only you will know the secret. Everyone else will just compliment how radiant your skin looks!
These don’t really offer a lot of coverage, so if you have dark circles, it likely won’t conceal them. But what it will do, is bounce light out of shallow areas like the corners on your eyes and on the bow of your top lip. There are very soft light-diffusing pigments suspended in a lightweight gel that sheers out, like it’s creating a blanket of light bulbs on your skin.
Swatches and more details…
Top to bottom: honey, buff, beige, nude, ivory, radiant
Dream Lumi is available in six shades; five of which you can pick according to your skin tone, and one universal shade (Radiant). I know the pink in the Radiant shade looks a little intimidating, but once it’s blended it, the pink tones itself down and just makes the skin look bright. I like applying it to my brow bones and inside the corners of my eyes for brighter peepers.
