To highlight or not highlight? That used to be my question. Now, I ask myself how did I ever not? I am obsessed with highlighters lately and think they make or break my face. They can break my face in the sense if I don’t use it in my routine when I have a good one because it adds so much light to my face, but it also can ruin my make up look if the wrong highlighter is used. For example: I recently got my make up done and I asked them for a natural and glow-y make up look. It sounded like an easy look to achieve to me, but I was WRONG. I walked out of the salon looking like I had a disco ball on my face and it was awful. I ended up washing my face and doing my own make up.
The Best Highlighters
Keep reading to see which highlighters are the best and my favorite.
Highlighter #1: Laura Mercier
I started using this highlighter about 4 months ago and it is life changing. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever gotten so many comments on my make up until I started incorporating this into my routine. I use the rose gold shade which compliments the blush I use so well.
Highlighter #2: Benefit Cosmetics
I have used the Girl Meets Pearl highlighter from Benefit Cosmetics for YEARS and it is one of my favorites. It is super natural how I use it but extremely buildable and you can keep adding more if you want a more obvious look.
Highlighter #3: Hourglass
My sister got me the Ambient Lighting Palette from Hourglass for the holiday’s years ago and it is still one of my favorites. It is so pretty and I like how it comes with three different shades and you can mix them together or wear them separately.
Highlighter #4: Becca
Becca is the queen of highlighter and this Be A Light Face Palette is amazing. I love how many different colors come in it… it’s like having four highlighters in one. I also like that you can use the different colors of the highlighters throughout your face to add a little real life filtered effect.
Highlighter #5: Glossier
This is actually the only highlighter I haven’t personally tried out of the five but I hear such amazing things and am a huge fan of Glossier products so had to include it on my list. Glossier Haloscope is supposed to be amazing (I’m ordering it as we speak). I love how people’s skin look in it whenever I realize someone is wearing it. Glossier product are AMAZING.
