‘Touched Shine’ | Touche Éclat

Like a golden magic wand possessing the power to wipe away a 60- hour work week just in time for Friday night; the perfect fix for the five o’clock makeup meltdown, or to simply add the glow of a Cinderella- inspired twinkle in your eye, YSL Touche Éclat allows you to discreetly erase imperfections caused by lining, and life…

Terry de Gunzburg, of byTerry, is the mastermind behind Touche Éclat, created over 20 years ago and is one of the beauty industries most coveted products.  In spite of its worldwide cult fame amongst makeup artists and the faces they paint, there are still beauty enthusiasts who find the click of the golden tube a bit of a conundrum.

Touche Éclat is perfect product for the ‘I’m not a makeup person,’ to the full on ‘Paris is Burning’ beat. It is glow, a highlighter, can sometimes double down as a concealer, and simply described, Touche is the equivalent of a Chantelle Lace Chemise; it covers, but the skin still peeks through.

 

Touche Éclat Tricks:

•Less is more; one of the few times you will hear me say this!

•If you are purchasing for the first time, ask for help getting matched. YSL Beauté extended the shade range, so ovations for 12, yes 12, options!!!

•Blend out by tapping with your ring finger; or try using a blending brush for a super sheer effect.

•Below I posted a few of my favorite places for Touche Éclat touch-up tricks.
