If you thought highlighting was a makeup tactic reserved for your face, then think again. In reality, it's also a great way to lend the rest of your body a truly luminescent faux glow. Yara Shahidi, Kate Upton, Lily Aldridge, Scarlett Johansson and Tiffany Haddish can all credit their lit-from-within-looking skin to Sol de Janeiro's limited-edition Glow Oils, which are designed to subtly bronze, highlight and moisturise skin in one go. It's the latest from the brand behind our favourite cellulite cream and body-hair enhancer.

(Yes, it's a thing.)

The Glow Oil is available in two shades, which both carry their own addictive fragrances as well. Copacabana, the bronzer, has the brand's signature pistachio and salted caramel scent, while Ipanema, a champagne shimmer, is scented with pomelo, wild fig and gardenia. From fragrance to beach-worthy shimmer, it's basically the closest thing you'll find to a vacation in a bottle.

And while the A-list may have reserved it for the biggest red carpet of the year, we plan on copying the look all summer long.
