New in Stores: How to Make Skin Glow

Contouring and highlighting remain trendy techniques this season, with the latest products allowing subtler—and more strategic—face sculpting

Givenchy Prisme Visage

A revamp of the 27-year-old staple, Prisme Visage now incorporates a silk protein that acts as a second skin to smooth and soften. Available in seven shade combos, including one universal correcting palette, each quad can be used in one of three ways: the lightest shade can be applied solo to highlight and brighten; the three darker shades to strategically sculpt; or all four shades, swirled together, to even and mattify the entire face. $57 each, at Sephora

Rodial Instaglam Compact Banana Powder

In online beauty circles, rumour had it Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist would set her sculpted look with “banana powder,” a theatre staple so named because of its yellow tint. Less messy than a loose format, Rodial’s pressed version acts like a mattifying highlight, brightening while cancelling out red/pink undertones, and neutralizing blue under-eye circles. $75, at Murale


M.A.C In The Spotlight Collection

Long before “strobing” became a beauty buzzword, there was M.A.C Strobe Cream, an illuminating moisturizer with pink pearl particles launched in 2000. This fall adds four more sheerly tinted versions for an enhanced glow: rosy red, silver, peach, silver, red and gold. For extra radiance, the new Extra Dimension Skinfinish accentuates the high points of the face with an iridescent touch; each of the four shades subtly shifts tone when applied, like Soft Frost, a white that appears a gentle violet on skin. $38–$40 each, at select M.A.C counters
