SHINE BRIGHT: 5 Tips to Get Your Skin Glowing with Root Illuminators

Bright eyes, flawless finish, youthful glow... sound appealing? Using a Root illuminator can be a game changer for your daily routine. We LOVE a product that can pull double duty (or more!) without breaking the bank. When applied strategically, a Root illuminator can wake you up and show off your natural beauty! Our illuminators are meant to catch the light and accentuate certain features to create that “glowing from within” dreamy look.
Here’s our top 5 tips to master your glow:


Cheekbones - The "Go-To Glow" Look

Cheekbones - The “Go-To Glow” Look

 Want definition? This is our GO-TO tip for creating a stunning glow. Glide the #20 Set and Illuminate brush with your favorite Root illuminator in a diagonal line across your cheek bone, from just below the center of your eye, finishing right before your hairline.

Inner Eye - the "Sparkle with Every Blink" look

Inner Eye - the “Sparkle with Every Blink” look

    Start with our loose or pressed eyeshadow on your lids, then finish with a Root illuminator applied into the inner corners of your eyes. This will finish your look and immediately brighten and open your eyes.

    Brow Bone - The "I Woke Up Like This" Look

    Brow Bone - the “I Woke Up Like This” look

      Struggling to get going on a Monday or dealing with the mid-week blues? Applying a gentle sweep of any Root illuminator just beneath your brow bone gives your eyes height for an instant wide awake look.

      Bridge of Nose - The "Flaunt What You've Got" look

      Bridge of Nose - the “Flaunt What You’ve Got” look

        A light dusting of a Root illuminator across the bridge of your nose can elongate your face and create a slimming effect, especially when paired with an Original Bronze Powder contour along both sides.

        Work into Moisturizer - the "Your Skin is LIT" look

        Work Into Moisturizer - the “Your Skin is LIT” look

          Mix a small amount of your favorite Root illuminator into your moisturizer, such as our Pomegranate Antioxidant Moisturizer, and you’ll get an all-over youthful glow that creates the perfect everyday base to your look!


          We’ve got many Root illuminators to choose from, so mix and match or start with a sample to find your favorite! Need help?
