Ever wanted that “lit from within” glow all the celebs on red carpet night have? Well now you can – highlighting and bronzing products have been front runners in the makeup game for some time now and the options for these products are sky-high. A little bronze to the skin and a swipe of a highlighting product on the points of your face where the sun hits can elevate your makeup look to give you that ultimate glow up.
We have picked out five of our favourite bronzing and highlighting products that we have tested out and given our seal of approval – so you can shine bright like a diamond this party season.
Best liquid highlighter
Our pick for the best liquid highlighter is the M.A.C Strobe Face Glaze. This product is small but packs a punch. The formula is balmy and creamy but not sticky and sits really well on top of makeup on highlighting points, such as your cheekbones, eyebrows, nose and upper lip. We have this in the shade “Let’s Make Waves” and love it. Snap this product up quick, as it sells out faster than you can say “illuminate”.
Best highlighting kit
Our pick for the best highlighting kit is the Mecca Max Sunrise Skin Off Duty Beauty Trio. This kit features three sticks for contouring, blush and highlighting, with a buttery, creamy formula. Use these products altogether for a full highlighting and contoured look, or separate as needed for a splash of colour or a hint of glow.
Best natural highlighter
Our favourite natural highlighting product is Aleph Beauty Radiance – we have this in shade “sun”. This creamy formula is packed with the powers of nature, with ingredients such as Jojoba Seed Oil, Alaria Esculenta Extract and Totarol. This product is super easy to blend into your cheeks and cheekbones with your fingers or mix it into your foundation for an all-over dewy glow.
You can’t go wrong with a Charlotte Tilbury product and this bronzer is top on our list – the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer is a Hyaluronic Acid infused matte-finish bronzer, that will give you a sun-kissed glow without drying out your skin.
Best bronzing and highlighting body product
Our pick for the best bronzing and highlighting body product is the M.A.C Strobe Body Lotion. This product features bronze pearlescent particles to add a subtle sheen to the skin. Apply it on the chest, legs, arms or any part of your body you want to add an extra glow.
