This beauty is your secret for dewy skin, it has a golden peach hue with warm sheen which is  universal to all skintones, it's a gel cream texture glides effortlessly onto skin , you can either mix it with your foundation/primer or applied alone to light up your complexion.

And the Moment you all have been waiting for. I had the opportunity to interview Gilbert Soliz with three question i have prepared that may interest you!

1. How can I get that healthy glow under eye concealer effect that has been seen on celebrities? 
Gilbert Said he loves mixing coconut dew drops with concealer customizing to your liking and then spread it under the eyes to the temples which adds light and gives illusion of lift.

2. What's your most favourite product out of the coconut collection? And why? 
Coconut Dew drops because of it's versatility, using it before makeup as it becomes like mixing medium and also mixing it with Concealer and foundation.

3.  Beauty tips & tricks that changed your makeup game?
Using certain colors helps achieve certain effects like in summer tanned look are more desireable therefore he opt to use more peachy, coral and orange tones because it automatically makes the skin look darker. Gilbert Said "work smarter and not harder" by using less products.
