When Moses came down from the mountain in Exodus 34, we are told that his face shone because he had been talking with the Lord. In the new covenant, we now have access to an intimate relationship with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Like Stephen, whose face was described like that of an angel, we are able to be filled with the Spirit, so that we reflect the glory of heaven here on earth. God longs for us to seek His face that we might shine for him.
