Get Your Glow On

We’ll let you in on a little secret. The key to all of our favourite beauty looks is a radiant, youthful sheen. Get your glow on with our roundup of the best and brightest highlighters around.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector
A cult beauty classic, and firm favourite of celebrity makeup artist Lisa Eldridge, this iridescent lotion melts into the skin for a seamless, radiant glow.  A range of co-ordinating powders is on the way. €40.53 from Dundalk-based Mise Beauty

Buff Makeup Sheer Glo
A similar product, but much closer to home, is this liquid luminiser from Irish brand Buff. Wear alone or over makeup for a lovely brightening glow. It comes in six shades – we love Movie Star, a pale pink that works on every skin tone. €36, The Make Up Suite at Hessions or Buff Makeup

Benefit Fine-One-One
A great pick for pale complexions, this creamy highlighter stick twists up for easy application on-the-go. The three shades – watermelon, coral and pink champagne – combine for a subtle, pretty sheen€34, Benefit counters nationwide

Armani Fluid Sheer
With seven new shades introduced earlier this year, this iconic range offers something to flatter every skin tone. Use alone or blend with makeup to lift and light the complexion. €42.69, Brown Thomas

Estée Lauder Illuminating Powder Gelée
Prefer a powder? Estée Lauder’s tri-blend gelées are some of the best around. This innovative formula combines the best features of powder, liquid and gel, for a silky smooth, high-polish sheen. The bad news? They tend to be limited edition, but Tease (a pretty pink) and the golden Heat Wave should still be on counter now. €39 at Brown Thomas
