A powder marker that brightens cheeks, eyes – really your whole face
Back when I was a budding beauty editor there was no such thing as a marker. Okay, there was such a thing. But that was one thing for the stage or the track. It was a tool in every makeup artist's kit. In your home makeup kit? Unlikely.
Take attract Best of Beauty Awards, a barometer of the beauty culture if there ever was one. In 2002, there was no category for markers. Ten years ago: one (Lorac Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder won it). And last year won five different highlights Best of Beauty Awards: a liquid, a gloss, a cream, a stick and a powder. Cursor has now become a makeup base. I know I use it almost every morning – and there are very few makeup items that I can say that about.
My ardent arsenal has grown to include many formats of cheekbone-accentuating, face-lifting, skin-glowing markers. But I always come back to powder – I think they are the easiest to control and they stick. If I go through the trouble, I want to reap the benefits all day. My latest favorite is Wander Beauty & # 39; s Wanderess Glow. The After Hours shade is a silvery gem that shines on my face without looking bold. I'm pretty pale, but several darker skin colleagues have also given this once, and it never goes critical.
Wander Beauty's entire MO is easy to walk and this formula is no exception. On harried mornings (most mornings) I just rub a finger over the creamy powder and then tap it along my cheekbones, curved up and around my temples. There is usually just enough left to squeeze into the inner corners of my eyes and suddenly … good morning! Then I draw the slim little square in my makeup bag for touch-ups. When I have more than 30 seconds, I swirl a tapered highlighter brush over the powder for a more air-brushed finish, then use a shadow brush to buff it over my lids. It's a sure-fire wake-up call – and a highlight of my day.
You will find Wander Beauty & # 39; s Wanderess Glow in After Hours in February 2020 attract Skönhetsbox.
