The key ingredient in the beauty look at the Phillip Lim show? Highlighter.

For whatever reason, I’m a bit highlighter challenged. I try to achieve a soft and glowy look (makeup artist Francelle Daly best described this as “at the beach without the tan”) but usually end up getting a little too close to Queen Frostine territory (Candyland, anyone?). Seeing this look has given me the courage to give it another go.

The trick is to apply it to the areas where light naturally hits your face (easier said than done for some of us), which means your cheekbones, lips and chin. If I start practicing now, I should have it down pat by spring.

PS: The highlighter used above is the Luxor Multiple from NARS.
