Diwali is nearly here! Now that we’ve covered all the hairstyles you can try out, why don’t we talk about the makeup you can wear during the festival? Since Diwali is all about bright lights and pretty diyas, I thought that highlighters are the perfect products to play around with it. Here are 7 incredible formulas that you can try out this season.

1. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter

Becca’s pressed highlighters are bestsellers for a reason. The silky powder formula delivers a soft, lit-from-within glow that is unbeatable. Personally, I’m fond of the shades ‘Champagne Gold’ and ‘Rose Gold’.

2. L’Oreal True Match Lumi Liquid Illuminator

If you prefer liquid highlighters, then this one is definitely for you! Although it’s available in only 2 shades, both hues complement a wide variety of skin tones. Whether you mix in a little bit in with your foundation or use it alone, you will be left with a diffused, flattering glow.

3. Fenty Beauty Killawatt Foil

Fenty Beauty’s metallic highlighters are ideal for those who want to experiment with colour. The cream-powder hybrid duos glide on like butter to give a super-shiny, reflective finish. I’m most intrigued with the shade, ‘Mimosa Sunrise/ Sangria Sunset’, which is a gorgeous pairing of tangerine and magenta.

4. Benefit High Beam

Benefit’s pearlescent pink highlighter ticks all the boxes. Not only does it feel weightless on skin, but also provides a dewy finish that I can’t get enough of. Try adding a bit on your brow bones – you will be amazed at the difference it makes.

5. Milk Holographic Stick

Aren’t stick formulas the best? These ones from Milk are so easy to use and give off a cool, holographic effect when applied. Plus, they are packed with incredibly hydrating ingredients such as mango butter, coconut oil and avocado oil.

6. Farsali Jelly Beam

I’m obsessed with the sound of this highlighter. It promises to have a gel-like, wet texture that dries down and sets like a powder. Use a small amount to get a candlelit glow or layer on more for a blinding sheen.

7. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact

This iconic compact is known for its ability to deliver sun-kissed radiance. Since it’s made up of 5 shades of fine powder, it sweeps on evenly and blends in to give a natural-looking finish.
