But now, the brand has added to its range with this easy-to-use contouring product. Simply buff the silky and blendable formula onto skin using a fluffy brush for a more diffused finish.

Bronze Glowlighter, £38 | Rodial

This make-up/skincare hybrid is perfect for reviving dull winter skin. Designed with the same impressive formula as the brand’s cult banana lowlighter, the difference here is the shade – a warm bronze with a cool undertone perfect for both bronzing. Plus, it has a hint of luminosity, so your skin never looks too flat or matte.

Laguna Liquid Bronzer, £27 | Nars

The chestnut-coloured tone of this bronzer instantly blends out into a universally flattering golden shade. We love how silky it is, and you can mix it into foundation if you want something that looks a little more subtle. Don’t be put off by the first pump – it looks dark at first, but quickly sheers out. One thin coat is all for you need for an even, believable glow.

Bionic Glow, £26 | Milk Makeup

Formulated as a highlighter, but available in a bronzy shade that will instantly warm up the skin – we love this product for an easy, everyday pick-me-up. Plus, the blend of snow mushroom, reishi mushroom and hydrating hyaluronic acid keeps the skin feeling fresh, nourished and supple.

Shimmer Face Oil, £34 | Jones Road

If you’re after summer skin in a bottle – look no further. This oil-based formula is perfect for mixing into your make-up for an all-over glow. If you’re on the oilier side, this might not be for you, but normal-to-dry skin types will love this nourishing, shimmer-packed hero. Plus, it’s brimming with good-for-you ingredients, including nine nourishing oils.

Liquid Killawatt Fluid Freestyle Highlighter, £24 | Fenty Beauty

This Fenty product works as both a bronzer, but the formula contains an ultrafine shimmer that never looks too dramatic. In fact, if you’re after a natural dose of both colour and glow, you can’t go wrong with this blend of clary sage extract and soft illuminating pearls.
