3 / A HIGHLIGHT, OR EVEN A PRIMER TO ACHIEVE NATURALLY GLOWING SKIN
Forget your typical powder highlight, gently dab a little bit of Bio-Oil on the tops of cheek bones for a subtle glow sans the usual shimmer chunks. If that's not enough - glow all out and pop the oil on beneath your foundation as a primer, to boost your natural radiance and achieve a foundation finish.
