If you prefer a subtle shimmer, mix a few L’Oréal Paris Glow Mon Amour Highlighting Drops in Champagne, £9.99/999 points (15ml), with your foundation for a dewy sheen. The golden tone gives skin a glossy touch, as well as warming the complexion and helping fight sallowness.

For a stronger, beam-like finish, use a highlighting brush and dust the New Too Faced Love Light in Ray Of Light*, £25/2,500 points, over the tops of cheekbones. It can be teamed with a spritz of make-up setting spray, such as Lancôme Fix It Forget It Makeup Setting Mist*, £28/2,800 points (100ml), for a bold look that lasts.

Smooth water-based NYX Professional Makeup A Bit Jelly Gel Illuminator in Luminous*, £12/1,200 points, on the high points of your face (forehead, cheekbones, length of nose and chin) for a lightweight wash of radiance that glistens, even after it dries. Build it up by layering the gel for a high-voltage highlighter.

We love a creamy stick highlighter on shoulders and collarbones: for a sun-kissed shimmer, try Natural Collection Highlighter Stick in Copper* Boots Exclusive £2.49/249 points. Want luminous legs and arms? A highlighting oil, such as Sanctuary Spa Rose Gold Radiance Precious Glow Body Oil Boots Exclusive £14/1,400 points (125ml), is quick, easy and needs no blending.
