Confession time: I’m an illuminator junkie. A huge one.
I just love the stuff. On my temples, the top of my cheekbones, the tip on my nose and cupid’s bow, I basically bathe myself in that glowy goodness whenever I get the chance.
Sadly, there’s one glaring problem with my new addiction – the price. You see, the decent illuminators don’t come cheap. The really good ones cost more than one or two doubloons, and every time I try to make myself look like a human Tinkerbell, my heart sinks at the thought of my depressed bank account.
Do you also love your brightening makeup? Carla can show you how to nail it every single time (post continues after video).
That was until I stumbled upon this lil’ beauty in Priceline, and read the sweet, low price $16.95. Ayup! A three-in-one palette so cheap it’ll cost you less than that cafe burger you ate on the weekend. Bless your cotton socks, Rimmel.
Here’s how I applied it, what order I went in and what it’ll look like on your skin.
People, I give you the Rimmel Sculpting Palette by Kate Moss. (Take. My. Money.)
Here’s what you get for less than 20 bucks: A shimmery, goddessy illuminator (or illuminer for the swish readers), a seriously pigmented bronze contour powder and a coral blush.
Each of the three compartments have a sheen to them. In non-makeup-talk, that means they give your face some light reflectin' dimension and won't make you look flat and chalky.
The order I recommend is contour first, blush second and then illuminator to finish. This is so any harsh lines of your contour are softened with blush, and that the glowy goodness of your illuminator is sitting pretty on top like frosting when you set foot out the door.
