4. Use Non-Matte Cream Based Products

Luminous makeup doesn't need any matte products. Matte makeup products can look cakey at times. So, make sure that your foundation and concealer are either a natural finish or a dewy finish. Your blush, bronzer and contour need to be cream based as well. Remember to not set your makeup yet.
