Simple Kind to Skin+ Illuminating Radiance Cream, £8.99
Simply switching your moisturiser for one with light-reflecting particles is a fast-track to fool-everyone radiance. This one blurs imperfections and fine lines too.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Pressed Finishing Powder, £22
This delivers the seemingly impossible – banishing unwanted shine while leaving a luminous, soft-focus finish.

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder, £3
A high street gem, this trumps its luxe rivals and has totally sold out several times! I love the easy-to-blend, iridescent formula. Add it your cheekbones, below your brows, down the bridge of your nose and on your Cupid's bow.

Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator in Pink, £11.99
Just a few drops gives a pearlescent sheen like no other. Make it work harder by mixing with your foundation, moisturiser or body lotion. The bronze version works wonders too.

Gosh CC Cream Illuminating Foundation, £8.99
Combining a lightweight texture with blemish-covering abilities, this makes faking that lit-from-within look easy. Skin is left dewy - not greasy - without a hint of glitter.

Clinique Superprimer Colour Corrects Dullness, £20.
Many radiance-boosting primers are best suited to dry skin types but I've finally found one for oilier girls in the form of this mousse-like choice. It comes in a version for darker skins too.

TOP TIP: Fair girls suit silvery-pink highlighters, olive complexions should go golden while dark skins wow with bronze.
