A few helpful tips for using a light colored, shimmery illuminator on the face is to apply it in areas that give your face a rested, brightened appearance. These makeup trick work by complimenting the other colors you use on your face and by placing it in just the right areas to provide highlights.
To perk up your eyes, place the illuminator on your brow bone after applying eyebrow color and eye shadow. To give your cheek bones a boost, try brushing it around the corner of your eyes and up towards your temples. Another neat trick for using an illuminator around your eyes is to place a white, shimmery eye shadow in the corners. This provides a pretty effect that will make your eyes appear wider and larger.
