Achieving dewy skin in a humid country is surprisingly easy. All you need is a highlighter, preferrably one with a low-key glow that will make you look like you're glowing from within. When placed on areas where light naturally hits, no one would be able to tell that you just put highlighter on. Here are our picks for creating this naturally glassy look:
1. EB Advance Face Trio
This cheek palette doesn't only have a matte blush and bronzer. It has the most finely-milled highlighter that mimics that glass skin look, too.

2. Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting in Glow
It's technically not a highlighter, but lightly dusting this loose powder on your skin sets your makeup and delivers that all-over luminosity.

3. Ofra Glow Up Highlighter Palette
This palette has a ton of different options that you can mix and match according to your mood. No matter your cocktail though, you'd end up with a glowing cheek.
