Three of the best new glow products for shining summer skin

by Holly O'Neill
15th May 2019

Shine on and rely on these for the ultimate glass-skin, yoga glow and dewy complexion this summer.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dewy Set Setting Spray, €31.50

Following it’s online success, Anastasia Beverly Hills is settling in for good in the Brown Thomas Beauty Hall, with the full selection of Instagram’s favourite cult brow products, hyperpigmented eyeshadows and highlighting heroes. One of the newest products from the brand, the Dewy Set Setting Spray, €31.50, deserves a home in your make-up bag this summer. The light spray smoothes over your make-up, blending everything and settling any harsh lines, while setting your make-up for the day and adding a dewy glow to the skin. Bonus points for the coconut-vanilla fragrance too. 

Chanel Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick in Transparent, €42

Before I saw this moisturising balm stick in action on a shoot, I wasn’t convinced but having seen glossy glow given by the Transparent shade, I’m sold. This adds a touch of liquid light to everywhere it goes. Melting into the skin, it gives a glass-skin wet look when used on the high points of the face, whether you swipe it on the cheekbones, down the nose or into the Cupid’s bow, plus it has the power to turn any eyeshadow into a grungy glossy eye. The effect is completely natural, just a yoga-glow or wet-look sheen, never oily or shimmery. Lucia Pica has set the bar on highlighting.

Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Lightwand in Goldgasm, €35

Nobody does glow like Charlotte Tilbury, and she’s added to her already gold-standard line-up of highlighting and bronzing heroes with the Glowgasm range. There’s two new summery must-have highlighting palettes, new shades of Collagen Lip Bath and three new Hollywood Beauty Light Wands. If you don’t know her Light Wands, they glide on the skin thanks to a velvety applicator that gives a soft, candlelight glow to the face for lit-from-within luminosity. The new shades are golden, peachy and punchy pink, designed to be swept onto the high points of the face or blended into the apples of the cheeks for a gilded, creamy glow.
