Get Ready To Glow With Our Favourite Highlighters

Coming in a plethora of shades and finishes, picking the perfect highlighter is no easy feat.

In the form of powders, creams, liquids and even jellies (yes, as in the jiggly and gooey food kind) makeup lovers and beauty beginners are spoilt for choice when it comes to the evolution of the humble highlighter. A must-have in any makeup kit, we've picked some of our most favourite beauty buys to help you get your glow on.

Powder

Best suited for women who have oily to combination skin types, powdered highlighter is the dual-actioned superhero that simultaneously mattifies and illuminates the skin. Whether you want your highlighter to be an intense statement across your cheek or you’re searching for a product that gives you a subtle, natural glow – a pressed highlighting powder is your next makeup must-have.

M.A.C’S Hyper Real Glow Palette in Get It Glowin’ is a trio of warm based, bronzy goodness that is guaranteed to leave you looking sun-kissed. Mix the highlighters all together or wear them separately, this multi-use highlighter palette allows you to be in creative control when it comes to achieving your ideal level of glow.

Stick

Are you looking for something that looks pretty on the outside as well as within? Fenty Beauty’s Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in Sinamon is a multi-purpose product which can be used as a highlighter, blush or bronzer, coming in a staggering 14 shades.

The beautiful (and easy-to-use) vessel housing the highlighter stick allows for ease of application for makeup lovers of all skill levels. Build it up or break it down and create a light shimmer by using your fingertips, Fenty offers easy damage control for when we all get a little ahead of ourselves and go OTT on the glow.

In order to achieve the most natural results, apply the highlighter generously underneath your favourite foundation. Or, as a final step, melt the pigment into the skin with your fingers and layer until you reach your desired look.

Liquid

When it comes to learning how to highlight, liquid shimmers make a sun-kissed glow easy to achieve but offering maximum impact.

Now coming in a range of colour hues, M.A.C’s Strobe cream is considered to be one of the OG products that revolutionised the cream and liquid highlighting game. Boosting the look of dry and dull skin, this light-weight moisturiser is a vital beauty basic, made to smooth, brighten, and hydrate your skin’s complexion.

You can wear M.A.C’s Strobe Cream alone on bare skin, mix it into your favourite foundation or use it as a spot highlighter. Either way you choose, we introduce you to your new holy grail base product for flawless face makeup.
