Personal Favourite

Marc Jacobs o!mega glaze all-over foil luminizer, £35 from Net a Porter and $49 from Sephora

My personal favourite has to be this one. I love that huge golden packaging.  And if I had to get one for myself – this would be it. The micro-fine, jet-milled powder applies seamlessly and promised to create that get-noticed glow without glitter. The warm, peachy gold highlighter is perfectly sized for both face and all-over body.  Yes!

There are a lot of other different options. So make sure you get the one that calls out your name, and glow.
