NYX "Ritualistic" Illuminator

The thought of leaving my place without highlighting and contouring is just senseless. I am a complete sucker for cosmetics under $10. Especially if it is well known brand at a drugstore price and I have the cash to fork it out right then and there, I will buy it. This NYX Cosmetics illuminator is gorgeous. From first glance it looks pretty damn white but once you swatch it there is a gold-ish undertone that looks beautiful on any skin tone. And guess what? Well you already know that it is only $10 but it's almost up there with MAC mineralized skin finish bronzers. The formula is very similar to Bobbi Brown's brick blushes and bronzers. It is really great. Trust me.

Now I recommend all makeup enthusiasts and artists to swatch a product twice if you are in the store. I say twice because you have to take a tissue to rub off everyone's fingerprint then you swatch it onto your skin first without a primer and then again with a primer. Primers are always available to test out as well.

Application Method  
  1. Prep face by applying base aka moisturizer, primer and foundation
  2. *Optional: Contour face with color 2 shades. Use darker shade on hairline, chin and bridge of nose. Use lighter shade under eyes and down the the bridge of the nose
  3. Apply bronzer into hollows of cheekbones brushing upward slightly blending into cheeks and around hairline
  4. Apply a peach or shallow pink blush to apples of cheek blending up and outward
  5. Apply NYX Cosmetics Illuminator to the highest part of cheekbones, bridge of nose, forehead and cupid's bow.
  6. *Optional: Apply eye makeup and lashes
  7. Mist face with makeup setting spray and look is complete

As I said, this is a great product and I am highly allergic to the majority of NYX products.
