Touche Éclat Illuminating Pen
There are a handful of products that even those with the very faintest knowledge of the world of beauty would recognise as legendary - and Touche Éclat is surely one of them. Devised by Terry de Gunzburg, who now helms By Terry, this little golden wand lends glow to the high points of the face and areas of dullness you wish to brighten.
There’s a common, although misconceived, belief that Touche Éclat is a concealer: it’s not, and it’s not designed to provide coverage. Instead, rely on it to illuminate in a wholly natural way that reads as real skin, only glowier.
Apply Touche Éclat after applying your foundation or directly onto bare skin for a luminous, fresh-faced complexion. When using your Touche Éclat for the first time, you will need to click the pen up to 20 times to activate and start product flow.
For direct application on the face, use the tip of the pen to apply product directly onto your skin and blend by gently tapping with clean fingers.
For application using a concealer brush, apply a stripe of Touche Éclat to the back of your hand and then use your concealer brush to apply from hand to face.
EYES: Apply to the inner corner of the eye for a wide-awake look. Apply around the eye area to add light and to help with the appearance of dullness or dark circles for a bright-eyed appearance.
MOUTH: Apply product into smile lines from the base of the nose downwards to bring natural light into dark creases around the mouth
LIPS: Apply a small amount into the middle of the cupid’s bow to add light to the top of the lips, giving the appearance of plumpness & volume to the lips
FACE: Apply product onto the highest point of cheekbones & brow bones to add light to your features for a natural sculpting effect
