If I had to choose between bronzer, contour, or highlighter, I would for sure choose highlighter. There is no single product in the universe that has the ability to make such a notable difference in how awake you look, how healthy you look, and how darn gorgeous you are. Needless to say, I don't think I have a monogamous bone in my body when it comes to getting my glow on. But every once in a while, a product comes along that is just so lovely I think maybe I could be exclusive for a little bit. Meet the Laura Mercier Face Illuminator, and read on for more on why it will make you want to commit to your glow from Jerry Johnson, Global Makeup Artist for Laura Mercier.

What the Experts Are Saying:

When asked what makes this product just so fantastic, here's what Jerry Johnson, Global Makeup Artist for Laura Mercier, had to say.

"If you want something that looks natural, completely weightless, and offers the look of a truly natural glow, then this is the product for you. That's what makes this product cool. It never leaves the skin looking like you've been sweating—just a hint of light. But also, there are lots of shimmer products that are just too shimmery, making your skin look like you are wearing tons of highlight. The beauty about this product is less is truly more. Remember, it’s always easier to add than to take off, so slowly build until you've achieved your desired look. Make up should be fun. Let's keep it that way!"
