If you ask us, highlighter is the ultimate beauty multi-tasker. A touch of perfectly placed highlighter can help instantly make your eyes look bigger, define your face, and create visual symmetry. With the right illuminating makeup, the world really is your oyster.

Part of why we love L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer—and why it’s gone viral on TikTok—is because it works even harder than your average highlighter. Yes, it illuminates and provides a soft hint of color for the perfect lit-from-within glow. But that’s far from all it does: Lumi Glotion is highlighter, primer, contour product, and body makeup all in one. Here, we’ll give you the rundown on this must-have and teach you how to use it for the ultimate glowy makeup look.

How Do I Make My Makeup Look Glowy?

With the introduction of the “clean girl” aesthetic in 2023, glowy face makeup became more popular than ever (case in point: searching for the term “natural glowy makeup” yields more than 42 million hits on TikTok alone).

To recreate this viral look, which is characterized by fresh, radiant-looking skin, you need both the right products and the know-how to apply them properly. If you’re not quite sure where to start, that’s okay—we’re breaking it all down below. Keep reading to learn how to get your glow on.

Step 1: Cleanse and moisturize

For a seamless makeup application, you’ll want to start with clean, hydrated skin. After washing your face with your go-to cleanser, replenish moisture with L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Micro Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramides Line-Plumping Water Cream. It contains hyaluronic acid and ceramides and absorbs quickly, leaving the skin feeling plump and deeply hydrated.

Step 2: Apply a glowy primer

Next, prime your skin with a thin, even layer of L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer. The illuminizing formula hydrates and luminizes while giving your skin a soft hint of color. For this step, we recommend choosing the shade that most closely matches your natural skin tone—we’ll get into brightening a little bit later.

Step 3: Smooth on foundation

Lumi Glotion can certainly be worn on its own for a hint of color. But if you want more coverage, then you’ll need foundation as well. We love L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Foundation because it offers a medium-coverage, skin-like finish—perfect for a natural-looking glowy makeup look.

Step 4: Add concealer as needed

Next, brighten your under-eye area with L’Oréal Paris True Match Radiant Serum Concealer. The caffeine-infused formula de-puffs under-eye bags and neutralizes dark circles with a medium-coverage, crease-free finish. You can also use the hydrating concealer to camouflage dark spots and blemishes—just tap it on where it’s needed and blend it out with a small brush or makeup sponge.

Step 5: Highlight for a natural glow

While you’ll get a subtle, all-over glow when you layer Lumi Glotion under your foundation, you can also layer some on top of your foundation to highlight. For this step, we suggest reaching for a shade slightly lighter than your skin tone. Apply the luminous lotion to any area where the sun would naturally hit your face, including the tops of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, browbones, and cupid’s bow.

Step 6: Add a hint of color with blush

Glowy skin and flushed skin go hand-in-hand—the combination feels very beachy and effortless. Pick out a natural-looking shade from the L’Oréal Paris True Match Blush lineup and swipe it onto the apples of your cheeks. Then, lightly buff it up towards your temples for a natural-looking flush of color.

Step 7: Finish your look as desired

Once your skin is glowing, you can complete your look with a few coats of mascara or a swipe of nude lip gloss. Don’t forget to lock your illuminating makeup in place with setting spray when all is said and done.

What Is the Best Makeup to Get Glowing Skin?

If glowy skin is what you’re after, look for lightweight, radiant-finish products with hydrating ingredients—the more hydrated your skin is, the better your makeup products will apply. Lumi Glotion, for example. is formulated with glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and shea butter.

Another thing to consider is how glowy you want to go. In general, we recommend opting for formulas with a pearlescent (rather than glittery) finish. The finer the shimmer, the more natural-looking your makeup will appear.

Lastly, consider how well your products layer with skincare. Ideally, you’ll want something that applies evenly and smoothly for a seamless, your skin-but-better finish.

Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer

Reach for a highlighter-lotion hybrid, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer, which is available in four shades for all skin tones. To glow all over, apply the highlighter under or over your foundation. To highlight, apply a shade that’s lighter than your skin tone above your cheekbones and on your forehead, cupid’s bow, and chin. To contour, apply a shade that’s darker than your skin tone to the hollows of your cheeks. Learn more about the different ways to use Lumi Glotion below.

Do You Use Lumi Glotion Before or After Foundation?

You can use Lumi Glotion before or after your foundation—the choice is yours. Putting it on prior to your foundation and concealer makeup will illuminate your complexion, hydrate your skin, and add a hint of color to even out your skin tone. Using it after foundation, meanwhile, results in a more noticeable glow, perfect for highlighting or contouring (or both).

Is Lumi Glotion a Skin Tint?

While Lumi Glotion is a tinted lotion, it’s not considered a skin tint. Traditional skin tints have a serum-like texture and offer the sheerest amount of coverage. They’re a perfect hybrid product for anyone who wants the skincare benefits of a moisturizer while wearing very little makeup.

Think of Lumi Glotion as a step up from classic skin tints. It offers skincare benefits but with slightly more coverage (and luminosity) than a super-sheer tint.

What Do You Mix Lumi Glotion With?

You don’t need to mix Lumi Glotion with anything—it can be applied directly onto bare skin or on top of foundation. If you want a more subtle glow, however, you can mix a few drops into your moisturizer or liquid foundation. Try warming the combination on the back of your hand and applying it with a flat makeup brush. This simple technique is perfect for achieving a soft, dewy finish.

You can also mix Lumi Glotion with your body moisturizer or lotion—it’s an easy (and sun-damage-free way) to achieve a beachy, sunkissed look. Apply your DIY bronzer wherever you’d like a bit of color and luminosity, and prepare to glow.
