The prospect of adding even more shimmer to already slick-prone skin can be daunting, but worry not, because even those with oily tendencies can cop that coveted luminescent look. Below, three tips and tricks for getting—and keeping—your glow on.
1. Instead of using the usual fan-shaped brush, apply your powder highlighter with a damp beauty sponge. The moisture will help the product sink into your skin.

2. Create your own oil-controlling strobe cream by mixing your favorite matte foundation with a bit of liquid luminizer.

3. Swipe a streak of sheer, slightly shimmery lustre lipstick just above your cheekbones, then dust highlighter on top. Think of it this way: You're actually using your highlighter as a setting powder!
