Q: How do you use Vital Skin and Lit Up together for the most beautiful effect?

There are no rules to pairing Westman Atelier's clean beauty staples together—but two stick formulations, in particular, make the perfect combo for skin that "glows from within." Enter Vital Skin, a creamy foundation that calms and soothes while it corrects, and Lit Up, a translucent gel highlighter that delivers just-had-a-facial radiance in one swipe.

When using them together, Gucci has a two-step trick to supercharge the skin. How much you dial it up or down just depends on the order of application. "If you try Lit Up under foundation, you'll create a subtle, ethereal glow," Gucci notes, "And if you layer it over makeup, it's the perfect pick-me-up for a [glassier, more pronounced] effect."

Whichever you prefer, choose the Lit Up shade—in Nectar, Lit, or Brûlée—that suits you best and glide it over light-catching areas like the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, or cupid's bow. Here, watch the full video for Gucci's shade selection tips, plus how to master your perfect luminosity.
