YOU KNOW how back in the day —without the help of makeup–your face always had a sort of natural glow? Instead of bemoaning that former youthful radiance, though, I now fake it with Westman Atelier’s Lit Up Highlight Stick in the appropriately named shade Lit. (It also comes in golden peach and bronze gold.)
My usual routine had been to apply it over my tinted moisturizer or Chanel CC Cream to add sheen, but a tip on makeup artist Gucci Westman’s site suggested dabbing it on under foundation. I’ve been using this translucent gel for a while, but this tweak produced a better result—a subtle gloss —no stickiness—on my cheekbones. When I need to dash out in the morning, I skip the foundation and dot the highlighter on my cheeks, nose bridge, lips and eyelids to achieve something approaching that lit-from-within look.
The Lit Up Highlight Stick is also available in a mini-size (.09 ounces as opposed to .17 for the full size).
