Our “Better Together” series highlights surprising ways two products become — you guessed it — even better when you use them together.

Everyone needs a glow-up, and while we’ve already delved into the best highlighters that will transform your high points into a glazed doughnut, it’s time to give your foundation some glowing love. Cue: the new Lancôme Custom Strobing Drops to come to your foundation’s rescue. These brand new highlighter drops come in four shades — champagne, rose gold, gold, and bronze — and are meant to be mixed with foundation (or other products!) to create a super glowy finish. The benefits of using the drops come into play as a nice base for your actual powdered highlight, adding another layer of glow.

Simply mix the strobing drops with Lancôme Teint Idole (aside: we love this foundation because it’s buildable, long wearing, won’t transfer onto your favorite white top and comes in 40 shades) and warm the products on the back of your hand or a palette. Apply your foundation as you would normally, and the glow of the drops will shine through your makeup in Kira Kira-esque style.
