How to Score Candlelit Skin

Unless you live in Australia, you lost your summer glow a couple of months ago. But that doesn’t mean you can’t look like your skin’s been lit from within throughout the holidays. With the right foundation, illuminator, and technique, you can score the same candlelit glow that Nicole Richie showed off last week. Above, makeup artist Molly R. Stern (she works with Reese Witherspoon, Drew Barrymore, Lily Collins) and Jenn Streicher (Dree Hemingway, Hailee Steinfeld, and Emily Blunt are clients), spill their secrets.

Whichever products you choose, make sure you start with well-hydrated skin. It’s easier to build upon a natural glow than it is to whip up an entirely faux one with makeup.
