With us officially being in springtime and summertime slowly approaching, I think that it is safe to say that we are officially in highlighter season. If you are new to the highlighting game or simply just want to add some new products to your collection, here is a list of five highlighters that are sure to have you shimmering like the Glow Queen you were destined to be!
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter One thing I can say about Becca is they always get it right. They have a large range of foundation shades, and this highlighter is no different. What sets the formula apart from the typical powder highlighters is that it blends pigments with liquids, creating a creamy feel. This highlighter is perfect for someone who works a 9-5 because it doesn’t leave a glittery finish.
Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife: After makeup artist Alissa Ashley reaction video to “Trophy Wife” at the Fenty Launch Party went viral on Twitter much like myself, everyone else knew they had to have it. Unlike her other Killawatt Highlighters, which are sold as a duo and leave you with a shimmer finish, Trophy Wife is packaged solo and has a 3D hyper-metallic gold finish making this product the perfect highlight for parties and celebrations. Trophy Wife applies as a cream but dries into powder instantly. It’s loaded with superfine shimmer for an ultra-smooth, creamy texture. It also serves multiple purposes. You can use Killawatt on your eyes, lips, and collarbone!
Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer Skin stick: Personally, I feel like I am biased to Fenty Products but they are everything! The Match Stixs come in 10 different shades. They are magnetized makeup sticks with a long-wear, light-as-air shimmer formula. This product also has multiple uses. You can highlight, blush, and bronze with them. They are small, which means they will not take up too much space in your makeup bag.
Artist Couture x Jackie Aina Diamond Glow Powder Highlighter: I’ve been a fan of Jackie Aina for a while now. Recently, Jackie announced her partnership with Sephora to launch her limited edition shimmering loose diamond highlighter powder to purchase online. I was so thrilled that I accidentally ordered “La Peach” instead of “La Bronze.” When “La Peach” arrived, I was in awe. Everything down to the packing, which has a rose gold top and Jackie’s signature, is perfect. “La Peach” is the perfect combination of champagne, peach, and rose gold tones, which makes it wearable for all skin tones.
Cover FX Illuminating Prime & Set Kit: This set is perfect for women who love the makeup no makeup look. This trio includes an illumining primer, setting spray and the custom enhancer drops. These essentials are important for a long wearing highlighted complexion look.
