Amanda Holden always nails it in the style department - especially on Britain’s Got Talent. Her dresses constantly receive rave reviews (and a little controversy!). As well as her flawless style, we’re also super impressed with her makeup. With dramatic eyes and nude lips, her look is always full-on glam - and her glow is always spot on. On each live show, her cheeks were illuminated to perfection and now we finally know what product was used.

The big reveal on Karina's Instagram

Amanda’s makeup artist Karin Darnell once took to Instagram with the big reveal, writing: “Everyone’s been asking about Amanda Holden’s highlighter we used this week! Here’s the reveal… it’s Iconic London Illuminator.” If her rave review wasn’t enough, she followed with five gold star emojis.

Beauty fans will know Iconic London is a fave - and Meghan Markle is also a fan! As well as the Duchess of Sussex, Khloe Kardashian also belongs in the Iconic London Glow Gang. So what is it about this product that makes people go 'wow'? The concentrated liquid shimmer can be added to your foundation, primer or moisturiser, or simply used on its own for a super highlighted glow. It is available in four shades, and it costs £30.
