Stroke of Light Eye Brightener - null
I use on a daily basis, it is the last thing I put on. I form an upside down triangle under my lower lids, careful not to disturb my mascara/liner on the lower lid. I use a small brush to blend n then the larger brush to totally blend everything in. I use the excess on the 1st brush to cover pink cheeks n a red nose. After applying to the top of the nose/cheek area blend well with wide brush. then I apply all night finishing spray,to my whole face to set everything. that holds on all your faceup thru sweat, running , dancing and normal wear. You look like you just put your makeup on 30 minutes ago. I now have about 20 people who complete their face with Bare Minerals "Stoke of Light". Keep it coming
Love this product
This product is the only eye brightener that actually brightens my eyes. I've tried everything. I always look tired and this product makes me look well rested without having a cakey look under my eyes.
Great as a concealer
I know that this is supposed to be used as a highlighter, it worked fabulously as a concealer as well. Love its versatility.
I finally found a great concealer!
In years and years of wearing makeup, I've never found an undereye concealer that wasn't (either) cakey or too thin to address my undereye shadows.
This brightener has great color saturation for impressive coverage, applies smoothly and does not require any pulling at the skin under the eye. The color seems to lock in for a fresh look, and there's no running or fading.
I ordered shade 2, which is perfect for my undereyes, and could probably also use shade 1 to highlight the lid and brow bone.
Having struggled with disappointing concealers for years, I'm thrilled!
Amazing, wish there were more of it
It is absolutely the best concealer I've ever used, but unfortunately, it runs out fast. And there's often a lot left that I cannot use, because of the shape of the case. But I don't see anyone else with this problem, so maybe it's just that I apply to much. Still, if I had to choose just one makeup product to use for the rest of my life, this would be it.
Good product, horrible packaging
This product was suggested to me last summer for covering under eye darkness and general face highlighting. While I love the product, the tube that it comes in and the applicator are subpar at best. The product gets stuck in the bottom and top of the tube, meaning that at least half the product is being wasted because you just cant get it out of the tube. You can see through my tube in the middle, the only part where you can angle the applicator wand enough to scrape product off the sides.
In addition, either the product doesn't have that great of coverage, or the applicator wand just doesn't get enough product on it the first time. I find myself constantly double or triple dipping to get enough product. This could also be because of the tube problem though. I think a shorter, fatter, package with a wider opening would be better. With a more tapered and angled, cone shaped wand tip as well, to allow for more diverse application.
Brightens my dark circles and corners around my eyes!
I love this product. I have dark Asian skin and I use a shade lighter than my medium tan foundation. It stays on all day. Several people have commented that "you look really today" or "are you doing something different". Without the dark circles I look more energetic and younger than my 56 years.
Pretty Solid Luminizer
I have been using this product for a couple of months, and I have to say it's a pretty good luminzer. I use this on the high points of my face (top of my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose) after I apply my foundation. The tube also lasts a long time so you get your money's worth. I would recommend trying this product out!
If I could only choose one cosmetic, THIS would be it!
I have fairly dark circles and reddish discoloration on my eye and undereye area, as well as the Celtic curse of red blotchy cheeks. This brightener works beautifully to conceal these flaws without ever getting cakey and it's super easy to blend out. It's wonderful to take away that "tired and stressed" look and makes me look more rested and refreshed. I've been using this for about 3 years now and can't live without it!
I could wear this and some moisturizer alone, but if I need a little more evening out, I add the original powder foundation and blend well. I never get raccoon eyes where it looks like I've obviously used concealer. I love that feature.
My normal routine includes moisturizing then using a little bit of the primer under and on my eyes and nose to even texture, then I use the Stroke of Light in Luminous 2 and blend it over and under my eyes, down the center of my nose and on the red areas near my cheeks. I blend quickly with my fingers then use the full coverage brush to apply the Fairly Medium original foundation to blend to a flawless but un-made up look. I get compliments on my skin all the time. For a 46 year old, that's pretty cool!
I could technically use the Fairly Light and Luminous 1 tones, but I like the coverage of the Fairly Medium/Luminous 2 combo because it blends my freckles better. The joys of being a Ginger with pink undertones!
I love it!
This covers my dark circles beautifully! Since it is a brightener, I use it one shade down from what I wear in my concealer, and it works so great. Love it!
