1. For the optical illusion of a lifted face, apply along your cheekbones (moving up toward your temples) and along your browbone.
2. Counteract dark shadows: With your ring finger, dab a cream formula on the inner corners of your eyes, blending so it looks subtle.
3. For allover radiance, mix a pea-size drop of liquid luminizer into your foundation. It gives skin a dewy finish without too much shimmer.
