Instead of making unattainable resolutions this year, you might find it a little less stressful to finally find your perfect {highlighter}, you know, the kind that makes you feel like your {complexion} has been blessed by the Greek gods. Perhaps you’ve just hit pan on your favourite glow-granting {powder} (quelle disaster!) and the time has come to try something new, or maybe your skin is just going through a dull patch. Well if that is the case, there’s no need to panic! We’ve taken on the very trying task *cough cough* of sussing out the best new ways to glow in 2023…


It’s time to step out of the darkness and into the spotlight of the silver screen with Charlotte Tilbury’s latest flawless creation. The {Hollywood Glow Glide Architect Highlighter} takes its inspiration from the glitz and glam of the golden age of cinema, influenced by the old-school camera tricks that created the illusion of a flawless visage. Combining a unique ‘Light Flex Technology’ with smoothing emollients, this hybrid powder reveals a multi-dimensional radiance with just a sweep of your favourite fluffy brush. Housed within a covetable gilded compact, and with seven ethereal hues to choose from, we’re predicting rave reviews for this box office hit.

The brand on everyone’s lips… eyes, cheeks, face (you get the picture), VIEVE was created to empower and inspire with a capsule collection of make up essentials that we now simply can’t be without. {The Essential Eyeshadow Palette} we’re looking at you. If you’ve already graced your face with Jamie Genevieve’s award-winning {Skin Nova} (lucky you), then without further a-dew we’d like to introduce you to the {Skin Nova XL}.

Over double the size of its original release, this jumbo-sized offering brings you an enviable golden hour glow in an impressive 100ml tube. Enriched with beta-glucan, niacinamide and rose water, this hybrid formulation is more than just your average primer (as if we’d expect anything less from VIEVE). Deeply hydrating, balancing and working to improve uneven skin tone, this lightweight marvel hydrates, primes and illuminates… prepare to glow like never before.


No matter how much liquid gold or shimmering {setting spray} you apply, nothing will ever give as much of a glorious glow as perfectly prepped skin will. To make sure you set your routine off on the right footing, make sure you start right at the very beginning… your {cleanser} will make all the difference! Restore luminosity and lustre with Tata Harper’s {Maximalist Regenerating Cleanser}, a supersized release of the bestselling iconic green bottle.

If congested, fatigued and blemish-ridden skin is dulling your inner glow, then this stimulating wash will swiftly restore radiance. Teeming with salicylic acid-rich willow bark, soothing aloe vera and pink clay, this cleansing powerhouse tackles dulling dead skin cells, inflammation and clogged pores in one brightening swoop. Adding to its tempting allure, this 315ml size is combined with a luxurious green towelette to make for a truly indulgent cleansing ritual.


If you’ve tried just about everything, and searched high and low for your elusive glow, we’d like to introduce your complexion to Odacité‘s {Vitamin C & E + Hyaluronic Acid Brightening Serum}. Part of their Clean-ical Formulations range, this brightening tincture was created to regulate your melanin and your microbiome, unveiling radiant skin in the process. The ultimate wake up call for sluggish skin, this all-star formulation features everything from moisture-locking squalane to vitamins C and E and hydrating hyaluronic acid. They say glowing skin comes from within, and this age-defying concentrate works to plump and nourish your skin from within to guarantee a natural glow.
