This is the beauty secret behind Amanda Holden’s Britain’s Got Talent glow

Amanda Holden and he co-stars always go all out for the Britain’s Got Talent finale, and this year was no exception.

Of course, much of the focus is on the outfits (with Amanda wowing fans in a black bodysuit and sheer, sparkly skirt), but in recent episodes, viewers had also noticed the judge’s incredible glowing skin – and now her make-up artist, Karin Darnell, has shared the secret to achieving a similar glow at home.


Posting on her Instagram account, Karin revealed that she used Iconic London’s Illuminator, which costs £30 for a 13.5ml bottle, to create Amanda’s luminous look.

‘Everyone’s been asking about @noholdenback hilighter we this week! Here’s the reveal .. it’s illuminator ??⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐,’ she posted, alongside a picture of Amanda having the product applied.

Her followers were quick to agree with her 5 star assesment, with one writing: ‘The BEST highlighter ??’ and another agreeing: ‘Loved her makeup tonight ??’.

Amanda isn’t the only celeb fan of the Iconic product – everyone from Chrissy Teigen to Khloe Kardashian to Jordan Dunn has reportedly used the highlighter to accentuate their cheekbones in the past.

The product also has a whole host of rave reviews on the Iconic website. ‘I literally feel like I have a new glow. It’s lush! A few drops and I’m shining all day! Love it!,’ one happy shopper exclaimed, whilst a second said: ‘Its like silk! Blends perfectly on the foundation and doesnt leave dry patches. Skin looks so dewy and radiant.’

Of course, great skin requires a great base – and luckily for us, Karin has shown us the products she used on Amanda underneath the illuminator too: Caudalie’s Premier Cru Le Serum and Premier Cru Eye Cream.

‘???? amazing!,’ one fan told Karin after seeing the step-by-step snaps of the process. ‘I am saving all your @noholdenback posts on tips and make-up as Amanda looks sensational ❤????.’
