Lets have a quick look at the products.
So the Illuminator can be used however you like really, dotted onto placed you want to highlight, or under your foundation, or even mixed in with your foundation. It comes in four shades, there's the nude, which I have, a pink, a peach and a bronze if I recall correctly. I have several highlighters, what I wanted was a product that I could use all over to add a general brightness to my face.
It's £18.95 btw and it's a large amount given how little you use and will probably last me a long time.
The Almost Make Up is incredibly sheer, but that's what I wanted, I just want to even out skintone. I would absolutely expect to be using the concealer generously with my face! As I say, I've never tried a sheer face product before, I've never been brave enough. This comes in six shades ranging from Fair to Deep and I have 02 which is Light. It's £20 so time will tell if it's value for money!
Anyway, here's my face with no concealer, but all other make up, including the illuminator and foundation, no powder either.
In terms of wear, it's actually fairly long wearing, I got about 6 hours out of it, and with a light dusting of powder I'd guess it'd go a lot longer.
So that's my summer face sorted! What do you think? What do you go for in the hot weather? Could you cope with sheer coverage?
