How celebrities get their beautiful luminous skin

When you flip through magazines or look at the Hollywood stars of the silver screen, they all have a magnificent healthy, luminous complexion. Obviously these people are normal human beings that don’t all have perfect skin. Here are their secret techniques so that you too can get the same results.

1. Exfoliate
Do this once a week to get rid of dead skin cells which give your skin a dull appearance.

Suggestion: Chanel Gommage Microperlé Éclat – Maximum Radiance Exfoliating Gel.

2. Moisturize sufficiently
Dry or dehydrated skin can’t reflect light because it looks dull and lifeless. Get a good moisturizer adapted to your skin type and apply it twice a day.

3. Use skin-care products that give radiance
Suggestions: Chanel Éclat Originel (for dry skin), Aveeno Positively Radiant range (several products), Clarins Crème Capital Lumière and Baume beauté éclair.

4. Use a lightweight foundation that reflects light
This type of foundation gives a natural look because it’s light and contains light-reflecting particles for a healthy luminous glow.
Suggestions: Lancôme Teint Miracle, Clarins Skin Illusion, Dior Capture Totale, L’Oréal Magic Lumi.

5. Hide your imperfections with a light-reflecting concealer
As well as giving you a radiant look, it conceals imperfections better.
Suggestion: the famous Touche éclat by Yves St-Laurent, L’Oréal True Match Touche Magique.

6. Sweep on a light coating of illuminating powder
This also contains light-reflecting pigments like mica which create a healthy glow. Apply in small amounts on certain areas for subtle effects or all over the face for total radiance (I prefer in certain areas).
Suggestions: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact, Make-Up Forever Shine On Powder.

7. Accentuate the look with a touch of highlighter
This highlights your features if you apply it on cheeks, temple, ridge of the nose, point of the chin, centre of the forehead, in the Cupids bow (M shape) and in the centre of the lower lip.
Suggestions: Benefit High Beam, Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer.
