Olivia Hawkins may be best known for her villain edit (rude) and matching dress and glove combos (iconic) during Love Island Season 9, but we have loved watching her thrive ever since. From speaking at an Oxford University women's debate and wowing at film premieres to working with huge global brands, Liv is truly glowing, inside and out.

Exhibit A:

We caught up with Olivia during Arabella Chi's gorgeous Say It With launch dinner in Mayfair to ask her what exactly is responsible for the glow (aside from all the thriving, ofc) and it turns out it's the very affordable Elf Halo Glow.

"It gives the most incredible glow," Olivia shares. "I love it, especially for the summer as you don't want anything too heavy as foundation can be too much. The Elf Halo Glow is a good happy medium."

She continues, "It's such a good dupe of the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter, it's literally the same thing at a fraction of the price!"

The Elf Halo Glow is a highly-rated, glowy complexion booster packed with skincare ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and squalane to improve the look of your skin, whilst delivering a soft-focus finish.

It's designed to be worn either as a gleamy primer, mixed in with your usual foundation or worn on its own for a your-skin-but-better radiance.

The Halo Glow normally retails for £15, but it's currently on offer on the Beauty Bay website for just £12.75. Run, don't walk.

One customer loved the 'next level glow' it delivered and wrote, "I love it 😍 it has a light blurring coverage whilst still letting my freckles show through."

Another added, "I wanted something that give me a natural glow on my skin but also a little bit of coverage and this Elf Halo Glow filter is absolutely perfect!"
