Since Kylie Jenner lips and HD brows made a huge impact over the past couple of years, highlight wasn't that far behind. Pretty much every girl in full makeup has added highlight to their routine, making sure their skin is glowy and their cheekbones poppin'.
So it makes sense that brands have now been expanding their range of highlights and giving us products that we can highlight our whole bodies in...
And let me tell you... these products are the only things you need to be adding to your skincare and makeup collection this summer!
There seems to be a new shimmer spray or glowy balm launching every week and they all look SO dreamy! I need them all in my life!
Here are my fave 4 bottles of shimmer (at the moment) to keep your skin glowy af this summer.
1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Shimmer Oil
This product hasn’t even been released yet but you know it’s gonna be incred. ABH are the pro's when it comes to shimmer and sparkle so they know exactly how to give our skin that glow we all want.
It's due to be released this month and ABH brand ambassador, Norvina gave us a sneak peek of the product on Instagram before it’s release and she shared her thoughts on Instagram saying “I can’t take waiting anymore. coming this May! It smells delicious”
All we know about this product so far is that it is a lightweight oil... and it looks like a bottle of pure gold dust!
2. Huda Beauty N.Y.M.P.H Body Highlighter
N.Y.M.P.H (Not Your Mama’s Panty Hose) all over body shimmer by Huda Beauty comes in 3 shades - Luna, Aphrodite and Aurora. Huda explains in a Youtube video that this product was inspired by Beyonce and it contains over 30% light reflecting pearls… I mean, can we get any more glow? I don’t think so.
This product was actually teased a whole year ago when Huda was showing us her new shimmer products… do you remember the post?
shimmer to give you the dreamiest summer skin.
NYMPH shimmer is a water based formula to keep skin hydrated whilst whilst giving you the dreamiest summer skin. The water base means there are no harsh streaky lines, just shimmery perfect skin.
And you don’t need to worry about the shimmer highlighting any dry areas with its hydrating formula it blurs and blends for that all over even look.
And… it’s also water resistant so you can get all the Insta photos you want by the pool or on the beach.
Those who have tried this product already have recommended mixing it with your foundation or even using it as a primer to give that subtle glowy look everyday.
3. Fenty Beauty Body Lava
If you want that signature Rihanna glow then look no further than Trophy Wife. It’s a limited edition shade in the Body Lava line and has all the gold you need to shine brighter than a diamond all summer long.
Rather than being an oil based shimmer, Body lava is a gel based body luminiser which creates that flawless look on any skin type.
All the original shades of the Body Lava are still available so you can carry that glowy look right through the summer again.
4. Patrick Ta Beauty 'Major Glow' Body Oil
The brand new beauty brand Patrick Ta Beauty only launched this year when celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta decided to share his first cosmetic line ‘Major Glow’ with his fans.
His 4 piece collection is made up of a lip shine, highlighting mist, body oil and and a setting fan (which looks amazing!). The body oil is SCENTED too and has the perfect amount of shimmer to keep the skin glowing whilst also hydrated - win win!
5. Iconic London Illuminator
I couldn’t leave out my fave highlight of all time now could I?
The Iconic illuminator has been around for a long time now but it’s still my go to highlight for those cheek bones.
The bottle is pretty small so it's not ideal if you're looking for an all over body shimmer but it definitely does the job on those smaller areas!
