It may seem counterintuitive, but Compton also loves layering highlighting drops over (gasp) highlighter. By combining a liquid and cream formula, she says you can really achieve that “glossy, reflective ‘dolphin skin’ look.” Or you can always use the glow drops on their own, tapping it onto your cheekbones, eyelids, brow bone, and cupid’s bow for some allover sheen.
Bronzing drops have a much more intense payoff when used directly on the skin, so you might want to use those sparingly. However, they’re A+ layered over a mineral sunscreen, especially if the formula leaves you with a ghostly cast. Apply a few drops to the back of your hand, blend with your fingertips, and swirl it into any chalky areas—your glow should come right back.
