7 Glow-Boosting Beauty Products For Spring

The Drops

Beautiful Skin Island Glow Easy Tanning Drops, £38 | Charlotte Tilbury

New to Charlotte Tilbury’s ever-growing range, these silky drops are so easy to work with – just a few pipettes applied directly to your skin or mixed with your moisturiser, mask or facial oil are all you need to build a warm glow. Hyaluronic acid gives skin a juicy, plump glow, while also sealing in an extra dose of hydration – unlike some self-tan, these drops don’t leave your skin feeling dry or tight. We like to mix a little with our foundation, too – the colour then develops underneath and continues to build throughout the day.

The Liquid

Elevated Glow Highlighter, £27 | Lisa Eldridge

If you’re looking to bring instant light to your face, this is the highlighter to try. ‘Cosmic Rose’ is our favourite shade thanks to its pearly, champagne tone that gets rid of dullness and breathes life back into skin. It has tiny shimmery particles, but they’re only visible as your face catches the light – even then, it’s a subtle sheen that looks almost glossy rather than sparkly. You can apply it underneath foundation or use it to pinpoint the areas you want to enhance – think eyelids, tops of the cheekbones and the cupid’s bow.

The Jelly

Bronze Goddess Shimmering Gelée, £38 | Estée Lauder

This is a better option for your body. Subtle shimmer combined with a bronze gel give limbs a glossy glow that’s unrivalled. It washes off easily, so it’s perfect for this time of year. The texture deserves a mention, too. Lightweight and buildable, it’s easy to massage in and it dries down quickly, so it doesn’t leave behind any sticky residue.

The On-The-Go Stick

Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick, £36 | Chanel

Fans of Chanel will already be familiar with its Essentiel Multi-Use Stick, but now it’s available in this ‘Mermaid’ shade – a soft, pinkish tone that maintains the balm-like, luminous quality of the original. Wherever you choose to apply it, you’ll find it enhances your bone structure, lifts your features and gives skin a healthy refresh. The stick format makes it great for beginners. Try using it as a subtle wash over the lips, too.

The Hybrid

Paradise Lumi Glotion, £11.99 | L’Oréal

For an affordable glow, you can’t beat L'Oréal’s new Lumi Glotion. A bestseller in the US, you can use it as a primer under foundation, as a highlighter over make-up, or mixed in with other formulas for a bit of radiance. It has a sheer, creamy texture that feels nourishing on the skin – thanks to shea butter and glycerine – while fine illuminating particles give skin the kind of dewy luminosity we love. It is quite pigmented, so bear in mind a little goes a long way.

The Pencil

Maracuja Juicy Glow Highlighter, £29 | Tarte 

This new launch from Tarte is ideal for those wanting to pinpoint the placement of their highlighter. Whether you’re looking to enhance your cheeks, collarbone, eyes or the perimeters of your face, you can scribble this on and blend it out easily with fingers. It’s creamy and easy to work with, while the shimmer levels are just enough to catch the light. It’s versatile and there are a number of suits-all shades on offer. We also love that it contains vitamin E and maracuja oil to keep skin hydrated and smooth.

The Versatile Serum

Great Skin Instant Glow Serum, £40 | Merit Beauty

This Instant Glow Serum might be one of our favourite launches from MERIT. Shake the formula to see the bronzy texture combine with the silky serum to produce a product that’s unlike anything we’ve tried before. As you apply it, it feels almost matte, absorbing fast but with a nourishing feel that leaves skin feeling soft and supple – that’s thanks to four types of hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. Once it dries down, the healthy radiance it lends skin is second to none.
