Don’t get us wrong, we’ve loved our J.Lo moments this season, but right now, we’re all about a dewy, glowing highlight across our cheekbones and lids. Unfortunately — though Labor Day has come and gone — we’re still hot and sweaty as hell, which means that our love for highlighter is resulting in one big, greasy mess.

Shop our favorites, ahead, and get ready for that perfect glow.
