This multitasking powder can be used in a variety of ways to make your skin look extra juicy and luminous. It contains Optical Glow Technology which blurs imperfections, neutralises redness and adds natural-looking radiance to the skin. When dusted all over, it adds a subtle glow to the skin to make it appear more flawless and even. Alternatively, it can be applied to the cheek and brow bones, nose and cupid’s bow to enhance and add a light reflecting shimmer. For lighter skin tones, opt for the shade Immaculate Light and for a deeper tone, Sunny Flash will be your perfect match.
