Gigi Hadid, 21, has her summer glow set. The model and Maybelline spokesmodel showed us all the importance of a good highlighter when she attended the beauty brand’s event with shimmering cheekbones that enhanced her bone structure and gave her the kind of glow even Kim Kardashian would be jealous of. To get the look without going broke, we found the best drugstore highlighters to shop — all under $12.

Naturally, for her light-reflecting glow, Gigi's makeup artist Erin Parsons used the new Maybelline Strobing Stick along Gigi's cheekbones, brow bones, bridge of the nose, chin and eyelids.
