Occasionally, I oversee photo shoots for work and there’s been a handful of occasions where I’ve stepped in and helped position the light reflector disc just so. I’m always amazed at the difference it makes and often joke that I need a crew to follow-me around to ensure I’m always seen in the best light. This is exactly the idea behind Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. Cue major excitement! The collection is designed to create your most flattering light — making you look younger, skin softer and lit-from-within. The shades are universal and you choose based on effect you want. They differ from what comes to mind when you think of powder and instead have tiny illuminating particles that Hourglass developed to manipulate and filter out harsh light.
Your personal Hourglass lighting crew is available in Ethereal, Dim, Diffused, Mood, Luminous and Radiant. Depending on the season or occasion, you might consider any one of these. I’ve hired on Luminous, myself. It’s nearly colorless on skin but does give quite the glow. I use it on all the areas I normally highlight, but don’t mind using it all over either. The latter requires a bit of a lighter hand because this does have a sheen.
You can shop for your own personal Hourglass lighting crew here. Come the summer months, I’m thinking Radiant may be my preferred lighting!
