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?!”
