Hooked on highlighter? The time is NOW to stock up on your favourites or indulge in THAT cheekbone-enhancing icon you've been eyeing. Whether you're besotted with pressed powders or prefer a light-refracting liquid, we're honouring the heroes of your cosmetic collection with our dedicated highlighting boutique. A focus on glow-givers in their many different guises, there's something to tempt every make up maven: from whisper-weight shimmers to high-impact strobe sticks, we've catered to your every radiance requirement...

Like things understated? BY TERRY's stunning {Compact-Expert Dual Expert} stars not one but two powders to mattify and maximise your assets. In an exquisite compact, the outer ring will swiftly control shine and fix your base or concealer in place, while the glimmering core grants a gorgeous, ethereal gleam to 'high points' of your face.

Boasting all four of RMS Beauty's best-loved luminisers in one slimline {Quad}, this perfect palette is the secret to a fresh-faced dewy lustre. Great if you like to look 'lit from within', the smooth, 'sheeny' creams have a 'real skin' effect to enhance cupid's bows and the bridge of your nose.

Prefer a strobelit look that's visible from space? Look no further than ICONIC London's celestial {Illuminators} - four shades of gorgeous, molten metals that can be layered up to maximise your rocket-stopping luminosity. Brilliantly multi-functional, just add a drop to foundation to counteract dull, sallow tones, then use 'neat' on your cheekbones for a tractor beam-esque magnetism.

You'd sooner keep things cool? Our holographic highlighters are great for those who favour frosty tones. Cover FX's {Custom Enhancer Drops} in 'Halo' have an otherworldly, opalescent lustre that looks breathtaking on brow bones, collar bones... anywhere you deem deserving of attention.
