Pat McGrath’s Nine Points Of Light

The latest issue of Allure Magazine featured Makeup Queen Pat McGrath’s look for the Louis Vuitton show for Spring 2011. The look was flawless skin, with nine points of light:
Most of us know about the basic five points of light: Inner corners of the eyes, cheekbones, and cupids bow. But McGrath also added light under the brows, down the center of the nose and on the chin.
To imitate the look, I picked up the much sought after ‘dual illuminator’ from Jemma Kidd Makeup School:

It comes in two colors. This is the Champagne color. The other is called Burnished, and is more of a bronze. It features an iridescent cream on the top portion of the container…

…and an iridescent powder at the bottom. It even comes with a little puff, although I think it works best with your fingers.
Following McGrath’s rules of illlumination, here’s my finished look:
Of course, the key to this look is a flawless base. That means no spots, blemishes or other distractions anywhere else on the face. For that I used:
Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation in Golden
Bobbi Brown Cream Concealer in Honey
MUFE HD Powder
Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara
Guerlain Eye Pencil in Beige
Urban Decay 24/7 Lip Pencil in Heavy
By Terry Or De Rose Lip Balm
