1. Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter And Glow liquid eyeshadows
Stila managed to balance pigment pay-off with consistency with these bad boys. They’re fluid enough that they can used as eyeliner, but pack enough of a colour punch for an eyeshadow look. Choose form rose gold, to sheer gold, to a molten sparkling black.
2. Jeanette Cronin glitters
Jeanette’s made quite the name for herself in Cork and beyond, as one of the most talented and experiemental makeup artists in the country. She’s not one to shy away from sparkle, so it was a natural move for her to drop her own line. ‘Fancy’ is a fan favourite shade of baby pink.

3. Collection Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner
Makeup artist and YouTuber Wayne Goss swears by these (though he does also admit that the brush that comes with it is shite). They’re super cheap and multi-purpose – great for festival styles too!
4. Sleek Highlighting kit in ‘Solstice’
If you’ve been lusting after Glow Kits, but can’t justify the price tag? The Sleek offerings are a good middleground. Layer the cream highlight with the powder for extra impact.
5. Inglot Sparkle Dust
This is highlighter on crack. You can also mix this with Duraline or any mixing medium to make pretty much any product you can think of. Lip gloss? Sure! Nail polish? Go wild! This is definitely not a product for the faint-hearted.
6. Makeup Geek foiled eyeshadows
The holy grail of metallic eyeshadows, these come in a wide variety of shades, depending on your mood or look. They’re sure to catch the eye of a makeup magpie!
7. Laura Geller Hi-Def Illuminator Duo
Laura Geller’s highlighters are out of this world, in terms of quality and in terms of just how bloody gorge they look in their packaging. This is perfect for someone who feels naked without highlighter, but still needs some level of glow for day-time.
8. Ofra Glow Baby Glow! highlighter in ‘Glazed Donut’
NikkieTutorials does be lashing this on, and if it’s good enough for Nikkie, it’s good enough for us. It’s a bit pricey, but the pan-size is huge, so you should get a while out of the product.
9. Jouer Cosmetics Limited Edition Lip Topper in ‘Funfetti’
You can wear this on its own, or layered over another colour to jazz it up. Anyway, who wouldn’t want to own a product that’s literally called ‘Funfetti’? Amazing.
