Gone are the days when highlighters and contouring didn’t matter. Today, we’ve delved so seriously into contouring, baking, makeup setting, and highlighting, sometimes we can’t keep up. On a bright note, this allows us to explore and express ourselves through makeup.
One thing that we can’t get over is highlighter, a staple of the beauty industry. This immediate glow comes in a stick, cream, powder, and fluid formulations. With these amazing products from various brands here and there, we just have to rave about them.
Here are four highlighters from our favorite brands. BRB, currently adding them to our shopping carts!
Glossier Play Niteshine
Just when we thought Haloscope was enough, Glossier releases Glossier Play, a new beauty brand under the same company. (Think of it as Glossier’s sister!) It embraces the same color and gloss but with more glitter. People who want to be extra AF have four fierce shades to choose from: Molten Umber, Deep Copper, Platinum Rose, and Pale Pearl. Each highlighter is easy to blend and has a foil-like finish. It comes with a big doe-foot applicator so no need to use makeup tools for this.
Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter
Powder highlighters are perfect for oily skin. Good news, ladies and gents! Fenty Beauty just released two new shades for its Killawatt Freestyles Highlighters. Achieve that baby doll look with a dreamy pink shimmer, Wattabrat, and iridescent blue shimmer, Chillz. Take it easy and make sure to dust your cheekbones lightly!
Summer is upon us and what better way to welcome it than through shimmers! Local brand Colourette Cosmetics continues to release new products almost every month. A recent addition to its makeup creations is its liquid highlighters or Shimmertints. The oil-based formulation contains minimal glitters for that perfect shine. The collection has four shades that suit all skin tones: Yellow Diamond, Tiger’s Eye, Crystal Prism, and Rose Quartz.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Loose Highlighters
If you’re keeping track, Anastasia Beverly Hills debuted its Riviera Palette and Dip Brows Gel this month. Brand president Norvina amped up the excitement and surprised us with a new product release–loose highlighters. These metallic highlighters contain more sparkles and a blinding strobe effect. Choose from three shades: Snowflake (a silver disco ball), Sunset Aura (a splendid magenta), and So Hollywood (a rich gold). Each highlighter is versatile so apply it wet or dry.
Get your wallets ready as these highlighters will make you swoon to the core.
