You might think you have your make-up routine all figured out and you even may be very happy with it, until you try Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette and realise how a single product can make everything so much better.
Basically it’s a kit with three setting powders that use high-tech sorcery to manipulate and filter out harsh light, making skin imperfections, pores and wrinkles disappear in a blink of an eye. The universal palette includes three shades, which are suitable for every skin tone (although in some retail spots you can also configure your customised selection, making it even more flattering for your complexion).
You can also see it as a very light contouring palette, because it’ll help you work your angles, lift the cheekbones, slim the nose and perform any other visual illusion tricks you’re interested in. It’s like a personal light technician, at your disposal any time of the day. And the best part is that it’s so light and highly bendable, you will never be able to fail it!
Here’s what it does: a neutral peach beige powder blurs imperfections and highlights the radiance with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones (apply it all over the face but focus on the centre). A sun-kissed golden beige enhances the overall complexion with believable summer glow (use it as a contour under the cheekbones, on the temples and on either side of the bridge of the nose). Finish off with a light dusting of opalescent pearl shade 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.
There’re thousands of beauty geeks and make-up artists out there who swear by this palette, so join the fan club for the more elevated, natural and glowy look everyday.
