While the advice of friends and family when it comes to makeup is great, there's nothing like an expert. Thankfully, I was able to take a moment to chat with celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles for some inside scoop. So what's the one product celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles swears by? The choice makes perfect sense when you look at latest trends and upcoming styles in the makeup industry, and I've got the scoop on what Stiles loves and what she'd love for people to embrace more.
If you've been paying attention to the cosmetics industry or if you've giving basically any YouTube guru a watch lately, you'll know that glowing skin is totally in, and it's that gorgeous, fresh glow that Stiles loves. It makes sense, then, that the one product she recommends in luminizer. Stiles explains that while some may feel they can't use the product, it's one of the best on the market. She states, "Even oily skinned women can benefit from a little application of highlighter. It truly brings light and life to the face. Just pick the formula (liquid, cream or powder) that works best for your skin type."
Stiles doesn't stop there, though. She goes on to explain that she's got another beauty product in her areseanl that everyone needs. This one is truly a necessity. Stiles recommends sunscreen. "Never leave the house without sunscreen," she says. That's definitely one product nearly everyone can get behind — celebrities and their makeup artists love sunscreen.
The fact that Stiles recommends luminzier shouldn't come as a shock. With collaborations like Jaclyn Hill x BECCA featuring highlighters in all formulations and the strobing trend not dying down any time soon, getting that glowy look is definitely on trend. The best way to achieve that healthy skin look, though? To take care of it. That's where the sunscreen comes into play.
Here are some luminizers to consider if you want to steal Stiles' secret:
This product from Charlotte Tillbury is technically a primer, but it's got magical light diffusers in it that leaves your skin looking hydrated and luminous.
CoverFX's Custom Enhancer Drops are getting rave reviews for good reason — they are so pigmented, but leave your face with a natural, sun-kissed glow. It doesn't get any more illuminating than these.
This affordable luminizer from L'Oreal is perfect for a hot summer day when foundation just won't do.
