I know I keep banging on about the colder weather and duller skin, but being prepared and using the right products can really see you through the worst of times with ease. Although bronzers are my best friends come Summer, in Winter I thoroughly rely on highlighters to brighten my complexion and catch the light. A little touch of radiance can help you look healthy, even when you’re dosed up with Lemsip and have a loo roll in your bag to help with the sniffles. Although I’m a massive fan of powder highlighters, using them sparingly to create a subtle shimmer, this highlighter stick from No7 is a truly nifty addition to my makeup bag. The chunky ‘Chubby Stick’ style bullet provides just the right amount of product for each cheek, allowing you to carefully blend it into cheekbones to create a natural result. The formula isn’t sticky or greasy, nor does the shimmer create a ‘gritty’ feeling so often the case with similar textures. This is perfect for when you’re in a hurry or are rocking a minimal makeup look, as well as applying on-the-go or touching up throughout the day – especially as the universal shade suits all complexions. Although the staying power isn’t great, the lightness of the formula means you can re-apply without worrying you’ll end up as shiny as a fairy light.
The No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter is available from Boots and online priced £9.95
