7 Tinted Illuminators For An Autumn Glow

7 Tinted Illuminators For An Autumn Glow

From radiant skin elixirs to glossy highlighting balms, the latest illuminators are designed to help you achieve that on-trend dewy look, while also extending your summer glow. Here are our current favourites.


BECCA Ignite Liquid Light Highlighter In Creativity, £32

When you first pump this onto skin, it looks very pigmented, but as you start brushing it in you’ll see it breaks down into a beautiful illuminator that never looks greasy or metallic. You can use your fingers, but you’ll get the best results if you apply it with a brush. Buff the formula into skin pre-foundation for a radiant base, or mix it with your make-up for a subtle glow – it can be used all over your body, as well. You’ll love the holiday-like fragrance.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Fluid In Sunkissed, £34.20 (was £38)

One of our favourite launches of 2020, Chanel’s drops originally launched in a rosy, champagne tint, but now come in a bronzed tone. Providing skin with a glossy hint of colour, just a few drops will catch the light beautifully. Unlike other illuminators, there’s minimal shimmer, so it never looks theatrical or over the top. It’s versatile too: use it on your cheekbones, brow bone, cupid’s bow and eyelids for an ethereal glow. Even better, the soft veil of colour is an ideal middle-of-the-road tone that looks natural on everyone.

Iconic London Illuminator In Gold, £30

Dubbed ‘the god of all highlighters’ this silky elixir goes a long way, with only a few drops needed to create a natural, believable glow. Mix it with your primer, foundation or skincare to bring both warmth and luminosity to your complexion and, if you have any excess left on your brush, sweep it over your neck and chest to even out tone and add definition. It’s available in five suits-all shades, too, so there’s something for everyone. We recommend ‘Gold’ for those looking to extend their summer tan.

Patrick Ta Major Glow All Over Glow Balm, £46

Patrick Ta is known for the covetable glow he creates for his A-list clients, so we were thrilled to see the launch of his new radiance-boosting balm. Its decadent texture keeps skin hydrated with jojoba oil and shea butter, while the sheer illumination it lends both the face and limbs, is unbeatable. Expect an almost ‘wet-look’ effect, thanks to rice bran emollient and micro-fine pearls – both of which provide a glossy veil over the skin.

MAC Strobe Face Glaze Illuminator, £21

More of a balm than an iridescent highlighter, a few drops of this smooth glaze mixed into your foundation will give skin an unbeatable glow. Use a damp beautyblender to press it into skin for more of a high-shine finish.

Victoria Beckham Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturiser In Golden, £140 

Victoria Beckham’s original Priming Moisturiser was a bestseller, and now, it’s available with a bronzy tint to give skin a healthy-looking glow. Think of it as a moisturiser/primer hybrid that works to boost and renew skin over time by using Augustinus Bader’s cult TFC8 technology. In short, it works to activate the skin’s own regenerative process for visibly plumper results in as little as six weeks. Not to be missed.

NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator, £8

If you’re looking to sculpt or just want to give your skin a little something extra, NYX’s illuminator is designed to work with all your other products. A little goes a long way (so use it sparingly), while a pea-sized amount mixed with your foundation will help bring any complexion to life. Another bonus? Its staying power is second to none – you’ll find this is still gleaming at the end of each day or after a heavy night out.
