2 Beauty Editor Approved Highlighters You Need to Add to Your Routine
Highlighter is one of those beauty products that has totally changed the makeup game as we know it. Bringing out the high points of your face — like your brow bones, the bridge of your nose, your cheekbones and your cupid’s bow — can really add a radiant touch to your look. While some highlighters sway more on the shimmery side, others offer up a dewy glow, so there are definitely a lot of options out there. Here are two highlighters that Misty and I constantly turn to.
MY FAVORITE HIGHLIGHTER
I have been loving Glossier Haloscope ($22) for my everyday highlighter. It comes in a swipeable stick that is packed with good-for-your-skin vitamins. I particularly love this highlighter because it never looks shimmery. Don’t get me wrong — I love an intense look a la this coconut oil highlighter hack for ultra-glam occasions — but most of the time, I opt for something that’s a bit more natural-looking and quick to apply. It’s easy to toss in your purse and blend in using your fingers, which makes it 100% goof-proof. If you’re a highlighter newbie or want a fuss-free product, give this one a try.
MISTY’S FAVORITE HIGHLIGHTER
“My favorite highlighter is the W3LL People Bio Brightener Stick ($24) — I am loving it. It’s all natural and makes my skin feel amazing! The stick is easy to keep in your bag for on-the-go highlighting needs, which is an added bonus. I also love the texture because it’s creamy enough to build for intensity but pigmented enough that one application still gives that lovely radiance that screams glowing goddess. I am obsessed with using this as a base for any powder highlighter as well — sometimes you just need to double down on the highlighter, you know?!”
