It's quite simple, just add a few drops and massage into skin after cleansing morning and evening.

Apply a cream or liquid highlighter to the face first in areas like cheekbones and anywhere you want to add a glow, apply foundation, then add some more highlight as a finishing touch. This really helps your complexion to start glowing in an instant, making you look all the more radiant.
