This look uses a highlighter to give you a healthy glow where you want it (i.e. cheekbones) and a mattifier to take down shine where you don’t (i.e. the T-zone).

1. Apply a few drops of Drunk Elephant B-Hydra serum across the face to hydrate the skin.

2. Use Omorovicza Complexion Perfection all over the face to even out the skin tone.

3. Take RMS Beauty Rose Luminizer across cheekbones for a subtle, healthy glow.

4. Using a brush, apply Rae Morris Mattifier down the t-zone to mattify the skin and take down shine.
