#2 Nars Velvet Shadow Stick in Goddess
$44, available at all Nars counters & Sephora ION
While the Nars Velvet Shadow Stick was created for use on the eyes, it has worked perfectly as a highlighting pen for the face. A single swipe of this subtle pink champagne shade on the high points of the cheeks, blended out just by using your fingers, instantly gives the face a lifted appearance. Consider the look much like using a wet brush to apply the brand’s Dual-Intensity Blush in the shade, Jubilation – natural, watercolour-like shimmer without any of the fuss. You can even use it to touch up your eye makeup – perfect for your everyday makeup pouch. If you like more of a golden glow, then opt for the shade Hollywood instead.
