The Best Highlighters For Glowing Skin

Highlighter makes a world of difference to a face, and there’s a reason the highlighter obsession is here to stay. Whether its on the cheekbones, brow bone, the inner corner of the eye or on the bridge of the nose, highlighters are a quick fix to glowing skin and enhanced features. With so many on the market, we’ve put together a list of the best highlighters for 2016. Trust us, they’re worth the hype!

Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops: These have taken over the highlighting world recently, and for a good reason! Insanely pigmented, these drops can be mixed into foundation or moisturiser or used alone for an intense highlight.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector: This creamy, luminising powder highlighter gives skin a beautiful glow with a lustrous finish. Enriched with ultra-fine pearls that absorb, reflect and refract light.

TheBalm Mary-Lou Manizer: Amazing for warmer skin tones, this honey-hued powder acts as a highlighter, shadow and shimmer. By diffusing light, it provides skin with a soft, warm and luminous glow.

Nars Albatross Highlighting Blush: This soft and silky highlighter provides skin with a beautiful light golden sheen.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette: Another cult favourite, this is a gorgeous palette for a subtle highlight. Use all over as a finishing powder to breathe life back into dull skin.

 The Best Highlighters For Glowing Skin 2016

Laura Mercier Face Illuminator: This highlighter looks just as amazing on the skin as it does in the packaging! The unique formula features high pearl levels that provide buildable colour for a radiant glow.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Highlighter: Perfect for a light to moderate sheen, this vegan friendly highlighter gives skin an effortless, incandescent glow.

RMS Beauty Living Luminiser: This silky luminiser delivers a lovely sheen and subtle glow. Featuring a satin-pearl finish, this luminiser delivers a lit-from-within glow to skin.

Benefit Cosmetics High Beam: Perfect for cooler skin tones, this highlighter has great pigmentation and delivers a gorgeous satin finish. Use alone or mix into foundation or primer for an all-over glow.

Mac Cosmetics Cream Colour Base ‘Luna’: A creamy formula that provides a sheer, dewy finish to skin and a beautiful but natural looking glow.

The Best Highlighters For Glowing Skin 2016

Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder: This high-impact, light-reflective powder applies smoothly and evenly for a flawless glow.

Benefit Cosmetics Watts Up! Highlighter: A cream-to-poweder formula that provides skin with a luminous champagne glow and can be built up for a more intense highlight, or blended out for something more subtle.

Burberry Spring/Summer 2016 Runway Palette: This palette is almost too beautiful to use! Inspired by Burberry’s intricate lace fabrics from the Spring ’16 collection, this limited edition palette allows you to highlight and enhance your features. This finely milled pearlescent white powder ensures a dewy glow that won’t look chalky.

Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder: Providing a stronger highlight than the original Ambient Lighting Powders, these Ambient Strobe powders subtle and look beautiful on the skin. They are wet/dry powders so can also be used damp for a more intense highlight. These sheer powders emulate the way strobe lights capture and reflect light on the face.

Mac Cosmetics Mineraliza Skinfinish ‘Soft and Gentle’: A warm toned, champagne highlight that gives the skin a sparkling sheen.

    Wow. I love this selection. Great shot too! The liquid highlighters are my favourite since my skin is so dehydrated.

    You have quite the collection of highlighters!! I’m a bit of a highlighter junkie myself (although I don’t have THIS many) and Becca is my fave!

    Wow, you are obviously the highlighting queen, so many highlighters! I must admit that I am still searching for the one, perfect one. There are so many products and it is really not easy to find the right highlighter. Currently I am using the NARS Orgasm Highlighter and it is quite good but probably not perfect.

    Have a great start into this new week,

    Monique xx
