Exfoliate with a facial scrub
For luminous skin, the key is in the preparation of your complexion, not just the make-up. Gently buffing your face in a circular motion with a facial scrub will help to remove excess dead skin cells on the surface, helping to reveal a brighter complexion.

Apply a BB cream with your fingertips
For a natural finish, fingertips are best to apply a BB cream. Choose a radiance-boosting formula to further enhance your luminous skin and steer clear from anything with a mattifying finish - we want to glow, glow, glow!

Contour under your cheekbones
Add definition and depth to your cheekbones with a slight contour - this will really make your strobing 'pop.' Apply a creamy product sparingly under the cheekbones and blend with a buffing brush.

Apply a cream highlighter
Again, a creamy formula is the key - apply two 'C' shapes from your forehead to your cheekbones, then a line down the centre of your nose. Add a spot to your chin and two lines on either side of your jaw. Blend with your fingertips.
