- Can I use NightLite Bronzing Powder for contouring?
Yes! Use a densely packed brush to intensify the bronzer's payoff and get a more defined application. This powder's buttery texture makes it easy to build and blend the formula to your desired depth and intensity.
- Is NightLite Bronzing Powder glittery or sparkly?
We use a unique Matte Mica, so there’s no glitter, shimmer or sparkle. Some may notice a subtly hydrated appearance due to the Jojoba, which enables the matte powder a more natural appearance.
- What do you use instead of Talc?
This formula uses ethically sourced Mica as a safe replacement for Talc.
- How is your Mica sourced?
We work closely with our sources to ensure our clean and ethical standards are upheld. Most of the Mica we use comes from India, and we ask each of our manufacturers for certificates from their suppliers to ensure ethical practices are in place.
- What is Zinc Stearate used for?
Zinc Stearate is a fatty acid that’s used as a clean base. This lightweight white powder helps to deliver super blendable and rich pigment.
- Which shade should I use?
- Can you mix the DayLite Highlighting Powders and NightLite Bronzing Powder?
Yes. Try adding DayLite Highlighting Powder to NightLite to add luminosity, or NightLite to DayLite for some extra warmth.
- Which order should I apply products if I’m also using a cream blush and the DayLite Highlighting Powder?
We always invite you to “make up the rest” and play around to find which order feels right to you, but here’s what we suggest:
- Why should I use ILIA bronzing powder?
ILIA bronzing powder adds natural-looking warmth to skin without looking streaky, muddy, or harsh. Pair it with ILIA Multi-Stick for an effortless sunkissed look.

“I love using NightLite as a way to give my face a more sculpted appearance while still looking natural. Use a densely packed contouring brush to define your angles with a bolder payoff, then blend the formula outward. For some extra depth and intensity, use a sweep of our Illuminator in Summertime as a base just below your cheekbones. It really helps take your contour to the next level.”
