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 in 2017. 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 for an all-over glow 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, these also come in a nice shade range for different skin tones.
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.
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.
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 in an instant.
RMS Beauty Living Luminiser: Featuring a satin-pearl finish, this silky luminiser delivers a lovely sheen and subtle glow to skin. Perfect for those no-makeup makeup days.
Benefit Cosmetics High Beam: Great for cooler skin tones, this highlighter has good pigmentation and delivers a gorgeous satin finish. Use alone or mix into foundation or primer for an all-over 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.
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.
