Beauty | NARS Copacabana Illuminator

May 12, 2014

You know those products that you take a bit of a risk on, but then fall in love with after first use? Yep, this is the one for me! Despite the price tag (which isn’t too bad at £22) I took the splurge on my second NARS product. Whilst watching a video from Hannah Maggs, she said that she loves the NARS Copacabana Illuminator and after a bit of research around the ol’ blogger-sphere, I figured out that this could be used in more ways than one. That is a good enough reason to buy it, isn’t it?

As Hannah mentioned in her video, she loves to mix this in with her foundation and that is definitely what I have found a love for too. I just either apply the product mixed in with my Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum or I simply work it in afterwards – either way you still get a beautiful result. Once the pearlescent liquid is buffed in, it completely ‘illuminates’ the complexion and leaves me feeling and looking glowing – something that I love. People have even commented on how glowing my skin looks – which must mean that it’s working! However, if you don’t want to revamp your entire complexion, a couple of dots of this worked into the highest points of the face and it works amazing as a highlight. Or perhaps a light coat of it across the lids to brighten the eyes?

This is now a staple in my makeup routine and I notice a difference to my skin when I don’t use it – I feel as if it completely brightens up your face. Have your tried to mix a highlighter into your foundation? Would you like to give this a try? Let me know in the comments below, thanks for reading!
