Do: Brighten your eyes and look instantly more awake by applying powder luminizer like Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Veil Powder ($42) to the inner corner of your eye, but avoid using liquid since it can transfer into the eye socket.
Don't: Apply luminizer around the eyes on mature skin because it can highlight wrinkles.
Do: Give your complexion a dewy, sun-kissed look by using liquid luminizing bronzer on your cheeks, chin, bridge of nose, and top of forehead. One to try is Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Luminous Liquid Bronzer ($29).
Don't: Apply luminizer to the oiliest areas of your skin because it can make those spots look even shinier.
Do: Use luminizer to highlight your Cupid's bow right above your lip.
Don't: Outshine yourself. A little luminizer goes a long way, so try using it in only one or two key spots, not your entire face and body.
Do: Mix a dab of liquid luminizer like Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer ($20) with eye cream to brighten the under-eye area before makeup application.
Don't: Limit yourself to one type of luminizer. Pick up a palette like Ultraflesh Shinebox Highlight and Shimmer Collection ($20), which comes with a powder highlighter, two cream luminizers, and two highlighting pencils that give you an endless amount of options to glow.
