With light-reflecting pigments that minimise the appearance of blemishes on skin, and a pearlescent powder to highlight facial features, this both brightens skin and conceals imperfections. The effects reportedly last for up to eight hours. To illuminate eyes, draw two “C” shapes on the inner and outer corners of eyes and blend it with fingertips.
