Renew You: the best highlighters for gleaming skin this summer
19th May 2022
It’s never too early for sun-kissed, luminous skin.
Ready to swap your winter grey face for a minimal effort summer glow? Highlighters, strategically placed, are beauty boosters that glide on and wake your face up again, whether you wear them under, over or swirled into your foundation. A lit-from-within gleam is just one smart product away, ready to give your complexion a boost or shoulder a sheen in an instant. Here are some of the best highlighters of the bunch.
Amongst the incredible 28-product Rosie For Inglot collaboration is the clever Afterglow Set And Refresh Mist, €16, which not only gives a glow with just a spritz, but hydrates the skin with good-for-skin ingredients, makes your make-up last longer and settles any foundation that might have smeared out of place in summer’s heat.
For a glowing finish in a flash, blend Sculpted by Aimee Connolly’s Liquid Lights Highlight, €14, all over, from the bridge of your nose and top of your cheekbones to the tips of your shoulders. It’s a subtle champagne gold that looks like a soft candlelit glow on the skin.
For a healthy, sunny radiance, add just a touch of the shimmering 17. Lights On Highlighter Powder, €4.49, to the high points of the face, or dial up the brightness with this buildable formula for golden-hour luminosity.
Sculpted by Aimee Connolly Beauty Base Pearl 50ml, €24.99, is something of a miracle summer must-have. On it’s own, it works as a glowing make-up free base, or gleaming highlighter, under make-up it works as both primer that makes your make-up last longer and SPF30, plus it has hyaluronic acid for hydrated skin and peptides for plumping. A summer must-buy.
The revival of all things Y2K means the return of body glitter, and there’s no better match for your micro mini skirt than the Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil, €38. If you’re skipping out on this decade’s attempt at skinny eyebrows, you still need it – consider this pot your instant all-over body illuminator that leaves your skin glossier in a flash.
