Highlighter, illuminator, sheen – whatever you prefer to call it, we’re always seeking that ‘lit from within’ glow. It can fake the look of a few more hours of sleep, an extra litre of water a day, or simply give our faces that special something that others can’t quite put their finger on.
If you’ve been tempted to test out an illuminating product recently, you can now navigate the cosmetic counters in record time – so get those cheekbones ready!
We’ve narrowed it down to a list of our top ten favourite illuminating products, from bargain buys to indulgent splurges and everything in between.
#1 ILIA Illuminator in ‘Polka Dots Moonbeams’ (RRP $45.00)
In a convenient twist-up stick form, this highlighter is filled with micro-sized pearlescent shimmers and a soft gold undertone, which works for multiple skin shades. It’s also laced with Cocoa Butter, Rosehip Oil and Vitamin E to help hydrate your skin.
#2 Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminiser in ‘Rose Gold Shimmer’ (RRP $26.00)
In the sought-after rose gold shade, this sleek illuminating liquid can be added to your primer or foundation and worn all over the face as a radiant base shade, and it also looks incredible blended from the tops of your cheekbones out to your temples.
