Selena Gomez‘s latest post is a great example. “Thought this was cute,” she captioned the photo, which showed her radiant and relaxed outdoors, bathed in golden hour light.

With summer rolling in, here are some tips on how to make the most of golden hour, Selena-style. The first is to take advantage of highlighter, which is the perfect partner for beautiful light. Some of the best to try now include Fenty Beauty’s Liquid Killawatt Fluid Freestyle Highlighter, NARS’s Afterglow Cheek Palette, and Rare Beauty’s Positive Liquid Light Luminizer.
On eyes, look to metallic formulas, like Vieve’s Shimmer Eye Wands or Laura Mercier’s Caviar Eyeshadow Sticks, for a little shimmer and shine that is super easy to apply. Don’t forget lustrous limbs: For those, look no further than Tom Ford’s Soleil Shimmering Body Oil – not only does it make skin look fabulous, it also smells dreamy.
