Highlighters are the jewels in anyone's make up collection and can take your look to a new level of glamour. The highlighters I will share with you leave either a subtle glow or a sparkle that lights up a room. Whatever your desired finish, these are tried and tested favourites.
Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder
A stunning baked powder that can give a subtle glow with a light touch or a glamourous sparkle dusted generously onto the cheekbones. This powder is gold based and is super fine, melting effortlessly into the skin.
Hourglass Powders in Diffused Light and Ethereal Light
These powders are so stunning and will give your skin a glow that appears to come from within. Hourglass powders are perfect to set your make up with if you have dry skin or don't like a flat matte look. You can also use these powder as a highlighter alone to accentuate cheekbones. Diffused light is yellow-based powder which brightens the skin instantly and ethereal light is a whiter powder perfect for under the eyes.
The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer
Heavy-duty highlighting will ensue once you buy this powder. A bright gold colour, this one is not for the faint-hearted highlighters, leaving you shimmery and shiny like a disco ball. Naturally, I love it.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal
If you are lucky enough to hunt one of these powders down (almost always sold out), it should last you a lifetime of highlighting. Similar to Mary-lou Manizer, this powder will give you a fierce shimmer and is probably best suited to those who like a bold effect. Use with a light-hand as a little will go a long way to leaving you as a glowing vision.
Too Faced Candlelight Glow Duo
A mix of a silver and pink highlighter shades, this powder duo can be used mixed together to give a gorgeous glowing cheek or isolated as a highlighter and blush. I love changing up the tones of my highlighters to cool as a change from warm gold tones. Again this is another strong highlighter and will have everyone admiring your skin from afar.
Nars in Albatross
Another cooler toned highlighter, this pearly white powder will leave cheeks glowing with every turn. Another great powder to use in the inner corner of the eyes and on the tip of the nose.
Mac Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle
This highlighter is so feminine and sparkly, leaving a glittery finish to your highlight. Not as finely milled as the other powders mentioned, this powder will a more flecked shimmer finish. A really pretty highlighter to use for parties or night events.
