Although face masks and serums work well to deliver luminous skin, there’s no quicker fix than swiping on a highlighter. Since I’ve tried a fair share out of highlighters over the past few years, I thought that it was time to list out my current favourite formulas.
This highlighter has won several awards and praises for a reason. The finely milled powder glides on to skin, without caking, to deliver a lit-from-within complexion. I’m a huge fan of this pinkish-golden hue and love the way it makes my cheekbones pop.
I’ve been obsessed with this formula all throughout the summer. The golden-bronze shade blends in seamlessly to play up tanned skin and provides a sun kissed glow like no other. Since it has a very natural finish, I use it all over my body – from my cheekbones and forehead, right to my collarbones and shoulders. I’ve even mixed a tiny bit in with my body lotion to add a little gleam to my legs.
Aren’t makeup sticks just the best? Creamy, shimmery and easy to use, this highlighting stick is the one I always travel with. This apricot shade goes on smoothly to give my cheeks a pop of colour and a whole lot of radiance. Plus, the formula stays put for quite a few hours which makes it ideal for vacation days when I don’t want to touch-up my face. What more could I possibly ask for?
I had honestly picked up this compact as a gift for my mother, but unfortunately for her, I fell in love with it! The array of hues go together beautifully to deliver a soft-focus and candlelit glow that I just can’t get enough of. Since it is quite pigmented, I use only a light dusting to get the results I want.
Don’t underestimate the powers of a drugstore highlighter! This liquid formula literally melts into skin, without emphasising any problem areas. The pretty golden shade complements my complexion and leaves behind a subtle, pearlescent finish that makes my skin glisten in the sunlight.
Have you tried any of these highlighters out before? I would love to hear your thoughts on them!
