Two application techniques:
- With the brush (rigid and supple), the result is light, natural and translucent. Ideal for touch-ups during the day. Sweep over the skin, from the middle of the face outwards.

Use Vitalumière Éclat compact on its own, or after Vitalumière Fluid for a more sophisticated result.”
