Get the look: Pharaoh's lit-from-within glow

Highlight your skin and hair with luminosity-boosting formulas that let your unique beauty shine through.

A dewy, radiant complexion is always trending, so step into the light with an all-over polished effect that will illuminate your natural beauty, just like Pharaoh. Take your glow to new levels in six steps with these hydrating and defining picks guaranteed to flatter all your features.

Max out your radiance
The key to a convincingly natural glow? A visibly refreshed complexion. Start by applying your favourite moisturizer and follow by patting Darphin STIMULSKIN PLUS Absolute Renewal Serum all over. Combining a special Deep-Infusion Oil Technology with collagen-boosting Sea Emerald algae, the fast-absorbing formula loads skin with high-impact active ingredients for a lifted, energized look.

Smooth and blur
For a soft-focus finish, prep your skin with a skincare-meets-makeup primer, like Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch Oil Free. Made with skin-smoothing acacia, pore-refining micro pearls and nourishing vitamin E, this dreamy cream allows makeup to glide onto the skin effortlessly. Full face of makeup not your thing? You can use this gem alone for a barely-there blur or mix a drop into your foundation for long-lasting smoothness.

Bring out your bone structure
Add dimension to your face with Uoma Double Take Contour Stick — Sculpt and Strobe, which takes all the guesswork out of contouring and highlighting. The double-ended stick features a lovely cream formula that melts into the skin and is remarkably easy to blend. Use the “sculpt” end in the hollows of your cheeks and along the jawline to give your face depth and dimension, then apply the “strobe” end on the tops of cheekbones, down your nose and on the inner corners of eyes for subtle shimmer.

Turn up the glow
For radiance that lasts all day and night, you need to double up on the highlighter. Lightly dust BareMinerals Endless Glow Highlighter over the high points of your face to amp up the glow factor. By applying a cream highlighter and adding a powder formula overtop, you can achieve a high-wattage (but still natural-looking) glow while also setting your makeup in place. Double win.

Sculpt those brows
You’ve added definition to your face, but don’t forget about your brows. Try a tinted gel, like Florence By Mills Tint N Tame Brow Gel, to subtly boost sparse brows while keeping stray hairs in place. The fine-tipped brush allows for exceptional control, so you can achieve a variety of looks: go smooth and precise or full and fluffy, the choice is yours.

Add shine to your hair
The best way to frame illuminated skin? Soft, shiny hair, of course! Infused with nine plant extracts and smoothing macadamia nut oil, Phyto Paris 9 Nourishing Day Cream is a silicone-free leave-in conditioner designed to smooth split ends and reduce frizz without weighing the hair down. Apply generously to towel-dried hair for a glassy shine — the perfect finishing touch to this lit-from-within look.
