A touch of shimmer can do great things - on cheekbones, highlighter lends a 3D gleam that breathes life into languid skin and subtly defines your contours. On the brow bones it instantly lifts while, nudged above the Cupid's bow, a dewy glow creates the illusion of a plumper mouth with a more prominent shape.
The question is, what highlighter should you use? It all comes down to your base makeup, and whether you're using a cream, liquid or powder foundation. Treat like with like by dusting powder highlighters over powder makeup, and tap a cream or liquid shimmer over a base with a similar texture.
So, are you ready to make your skin looked nourished and dewy with a luminous highlighter? We've rounded up the very best for your glow-seeking perusal...
Illamasqua Radiance Veil, £32
Now, isn't this a pot of joy? Illamasqua has encased the most velvety priming crème in the Radiance Veil, and we almost want to bathe in it. Pinky pearlescent pigments impart a micro fine shimmer that bathe languid cheeks in light, and its plush texture means it easy to buff into your skin. Dab a small, fluffy brush into the pot and gently whip it over your face before makeup, for an almost ethereal effect that flatters everyone.
