Cream illuminator is a versatile cosmetic that will add instant glam. Select a product like Giella Highlight in Beaming. This creamy, high-shine product looks beautiful when applied to the cheekbones. For a quick application, simply tap your finger into the cream and softly swipe onto the high planes of your cheeks, blending upward toward your temples. You can also mix a dab with your lip gloss for some extra oomph. For some extreme glam action, you can use this as a primer for your eye shadow. Anything you layer on top of it will have an enhanced iridescent effect.
Shimmer eye shadow
Shimmer eye shadow is not just for tweens anymore. When used properly, it can create an elegant evening look. Opt for a subtle cream-colored shadow with some shimmer in it like B-Dazzle by Giella. The loose shimmer powder looks beautiful when applied to the inner corner of the eye and the upper part of the brow bone. This will help you look more awake and lifted, too.
To really amplify the glam factor, dust on a powder highlighter like Giella’s Eye M Glam. It’s a coppery highlighter that is universally flattering. It was actually a formula that was created by Mario Dedivanovic, Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist. Sweep this on down the bridge of your nose, across the cheekbones, and on your cupid’s bow to achieve that Kardashian style glow.
