I have just been using the Hourglass ambient lighting powders on my model and think they make the skin look amazing and would be suitable for many different skin types.
My model had a few open pores on her nose and chin and I was concerned that the powder would draw attention to this but I was pleasantly surprised, it softened any small imperfections. I used Dim light on the centre of the face, I then went on to use incandescent light on the brow and cheek bones to give definition,to complete the look I softly polished all three tones into the skin to give a gorgeous glow.
This is a great and flexible product, amazing for day, evening and wedding looks. Just be aware that if you have a prominent nose to use a more matt powder in this area, especially for photos.This is not the product for someone who likes a matt flat look. The single packs come in six shades and i found that they adjusted well to different skin tones.
Available in 6 shades:
ETHEREAL LIGHT: An opalescent sheer, cool white powder that mimics a moonlit glow—even in broad daylight.
DIFFUSED LIGHT: A soft, warm, pale yellow powder that conceals redness and gives skin clarity—like a soft ray of morning light.
DIM LIGHT: A neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.
MOOD LIGHT: A soft, sheer lavender pink powder that mimics the softest, most forgiving light and brightens the complexion.
LUMINOUS LIGHT: A champagne pearl powder that creates a soft, incandescent candlelit glow—day or night.
RADIANT LIGHT: A sun-kissed golden beige that enhances overall complexion with believable, subtle warmth, and also extends a summer glow.
