7 Amazing Illuminators To Help You Get Your Glow On

Anushka Mulchandani

Because what’s life without a bit of shine?

For years, our only options when it came to the finishing touches on your makeup were concealer, powder and foundation – and you depended on humidity for the shine. Fast forward to current day, where our makeup kits now feel incomplete without at least one contour and / or highlight product (thanks, Kardashians!)

For the still uninitiated, when applied to the highest points of your face – the bridge of your nose, cheekbones, centre of your forehead and chin – highlighter or illuminator can enhance your features and give the appearance of a more anguler face. And who doesn’t love that?

Here are a few of our favourite products to help you get your modelesque cheekbones on point.


M.A.C. Strobe Cream in Redlite

Mix this baby in with your foundation or BB Cream and use it all over your face for a healthy, everyday glow.


NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator

A subtle sun kissed glow can be yours in minutes using NYX’s liquid illuminator. You can use this as a base to your foundation or even just use a tiny bit on the parts you need to highlight.


Maybelline V Face Studio Duo Stick

If you’re looking for some dual contour and highlight action, try Maybelline’s duo stick. It’s easy to use and guarantees a sharper look in seconds!


Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight
