There’s a fine line between a natural-looking glow, and a glittery, blinged-out finish. The trick to avoiding the latter is all in the application, which Natalie Portman
got just right at the New York City Spring Ballet Gala. “I swept an iridescent rose gold powder by Dior on the tops of her cheekbones, the brow bone, the bridge of the nose, and the cupid’s bow of the lip,” said her makeup artist Beau Nelson. For a seamless contour, placement of your illuminating powder is key. Make like Portman and lightly dust the product only onto areas that will catch the light, and sweep across your collarbones to give your décolleté a little sparkle. Deeper skin tones should opt for a warm gold illuminator. If you have fair skin like Portman, try out a cool dusty rose, or iridescent beige.
