Stroke of Light Eye Brightener - null
A must have in your make-up bag!!
I just love the fact that I can look awake and bright eyed after I put this brightener on!!
Quit reading this and go buy it!!
Seriously, this product is amazing. I am only in my early twenties, but I do get some darkness under my eyes (especially when stressed or sleeping less). I normally would just swipe some sheer lightening shadow under my eyes, and that worked somewhat. When I got this brightener with my bare minerals starter kit, I decided to try it out. I was blown away by how much brighter and bigger my eyes looked, immediately and over the course of the day (it seemed to continuously brighten). I did not have any issues with caking (even after twelve hours in the Arizona heat!) and would recommend this to anyone struggling with darkness around the eye area.
Even if I don't wear any other makeup, I will always wear this. It camouflages dark circles, brightens and instantly makes me look better rested! It resists settling into fine lines, and doesn't irritate my skin. Fantastic product!
Can't live without!
This product is amazing! I always would joke about my "racoon eyes" because I have hereditary dark circles & undereye puffiness, regardless of how much sleep I get. This product makes them virtually disappear, and I've noticed an improvement in the look of the skin surrounding my eyes on the days I go sans-makeup. I wear the medium tan original foundation, so I went with Luminous 3 and it works like a dream.
This is the specific order I do things in (only because this is how the make-up artist at the counter told me to LOL):
1) Prime Time Foundation Primer
2) Original Foundation
3) Pure Radiance
4) Eyeshadow and/or Eyeliner
5) Stroke of Light Eye Brightener
6) Mineral Veil
I haven't had one pimple since I started using Bare Minerals, but I don't imagine this product would work well to cover it up. Otherwise, AMAZING product and I cannot live without it :)
The Best BE Product - Hands Down!!
I love the Stroke of Light Eye Brightener by BE. I ordered it in Luminous 1 and it is my go-to makeup item. I carry it with me all the time- every purse, every day, every vacation. It is by no means a concealer (nor does it pretend to be), however it adds just the right hint of shimmer and color coverage that truly enhances and highlights the corner of the eyes. Can wear to work or a night out without it seeming as "too much". As a fair skin girl, I was debating between Luminous 1 and 2, but found that the lighter option made me appear less tired and as an added benefit, actually helps my eyeliner stay in place.
I am kind of pale with a slight tan still hanging on from last summer. I got this product because I needed a solution for the dark circles I always have underneath my eyes. I got it at the store today and had to try it out. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! I used it under my foundation and applied it with the wand then smoothed it out with my finger. Once my foundation was applied, the dark circles were gone and my eyes looked wide and awake. This product will now be a constant part of my makeup routine.
Perfect under eyes
I bought this on the advice of a consultant in the BE boutique. I have used the powder concealer (good for blemishes, but settles into fine lines around the eyes). I have used the other cream concealer (in the pot) but that is far too heavy for the delicate skin around the eyes--also works well for blemishes, though.
This one is finally what I am looking for when I've been up late with the kids and I want to look awake! I apply primer first, then a smidge of this concealer under my eyes and dab with my ring finger to blend. It is so smooth, light, and creamy it goes on well. I follow with my BE foundation and they look seamless around my eyes. Some mineral veil and I'm all set.
This is a great product. Plus, I use such a small amount each time, I think this will last a long time.
helps with tired eyes and makes eyes look younger!
I have struggled with hereditary dark circles all my life. I have tried so many concealers. Some have done a great job covering....but it still looks like I am wearing concealer. I finally found a concealer combo that works so well for me. After I prime my skin, I apply stroke of light (Lum 1) all around my eyes and then use my originaly bisque concealer to set it. Perfect!! And it lasts all day : ) I also apply stroke of light anywhere on my face where I want to "add some light" It blends so well. I typically skip my BE foundation. Stroke of Light and bisque is all I need. Thanks BE!!
I actually use this in harmony with my concealer, I have tried it a few other ways but I found this is what works best for me. Or I use it on days when I don't do a full face in place of my concealer, so I don't look like a zombie. Make no mistake, this is not meant to take place of a concealer, but to add a little oomph. While I love the texture and creaminess of this product, and the fact that it is not glittery, I do wish this was a more "brightening". Other than that, no complaints!
big fan -- well worth it!
I bought this product a couple of weeks ago because it was suggested to me when I stopped by my local boutique to buy more foundation. I am so happy the woman told me about it. It has become part of my every day routine. Sometimes even on light makeup days, I'll just use my BB cream, mineral veil, then brighten my eye area with it. Add mascara, a little swirl of blush and lip balm then I'm out the door and look naturally flawless. On days when I really need it, it works fantastic over a light application of my 'wide awake' concealer powder. I don't know how I managed before b.M. I'm a happy customer.
