Emily Ratajkowski just revealed her favourite highlighter

And it’s only $14

Digital Beauty Editor / September 14 2020

What do you do when you see a friend rocking a dress, lip colour, et al. that you simply have to have? You slide into their DMs to find out the exact identity of said clothing item, makeup product, right? Right.

That’s exactly what James Charles just did – only his friend was none other than Emily Ratajkowski, AKA the very woman who redefines ‘glow goals’.

Yep, in his latest YouTube video, Charles made a game out of DM’ing all his favourite celeb pals to grab their recommendations for each specific stage of his 'first impressions' face.

And while Gigi Hadid’s foundation pick (Maybelline Dream Radiant Liquid, FYI) and Selena Gomez’s advice around trying her new Rare Beauty blush drops were all well and good, it was Ratajkowski’s highlighter choice that truly took our fancy.

Why, you ask? Well, despite the fact that her glow always looks a million bucks, the illuminating drops she uses to achieve it are actually super affordable – like, 14 bucks-level affordable. “I love a super random one,” she shared, naming Sleek Makeup’s Highlighting Elixir Illuminating Drops as her fave formula.

Interestingly, Charles wasn’t actually able to track down the exact drops she was raving about (luckily us Aussies can order them straight from ASOS), so Ratajkowski shared her brightness-boosting backup option as an alternative for him to try: these hydrating highlighting wands.

But while we love a Charlotte Tilbury moment as much as any makeup lover (and the Beauty Light Wands are worth every penny of their $60 price tag), it’s hard to look past a celeb-approved bargain beauty buy.

After all, a high-shine metallic finish liquid formula set to bless our bone structure with Ratajkowski-esque levels of luminosity (all for less than $15) is something we’re unable to turn down – our cheekbones simply wouldn’t allow it.
