If you are familiar with beauty slangs such as that glo tho, lit or glowing to the gods, then you need no introduction to the holy grail of every beauty junkie ever- the ever glowing highlighters. All it takes is a swipe to fall in love, Amirite? Even though using a highlighter is old news, makeup mavens are still going the EXTRAA mile to look like a glazed doughnut and we are livin’ for it.
No makeup look is complete without a dash of highlighter. You can apply it to your cheekbones, tip of your nose, cupid’s bow, brow bone and the inner corner of your eyes. You can also use a highlighter as a lip topper or an eyeshadow. And since everyone’s on the ’Gram slaying and trying to look extragalactic and I think it is safe to say that this trend ain’t going nowhere. But not all of us can afford to spend $$$ (the big bucks) on a product that they eventually may not even like. That’s where we chime in.
We’ve got you! Don’t let the price tag affect your judgment cause each of these highlighters are as poppin’ as their luxury counterparts. So, let’s blind ‘em haters, shall we?
This super-pigmented highlighter looks so good on Indian skin tones. Just swirl your highlighter brush once and apply it on your cheekbones and YASSS, slay kween!
Pro tip: You can also use your finger to use it as a golden-bronze eyeshadow for that extra sparkle.
Remember the OG jelly highlighters, Farsali’s Jelly Beam highlighter that took the internet by storm?! Meet it sister-dupe that’s just as good. You’ll barely need to touch the product and just dab it to blend in all its glory. Yup, it is THAT good.
This highlighter brick has a shade for everyone. You can either use all the shades or simply the ones that call out your name. Because of its wide range of colours, you can definitely use it in more ways than one - highlighter, eyeshadow, blush, bronzer. The sky’s the limit!
At this price, this is basically a steal. Perhaps the most pigmented highlighter in the list, it has made its way to every beauty lover’s makeup vanity because of its price and formula! And since its often available at discounted prices, we say buy all of the shades and you wouldn’t be disappointed!
There was a time when liquid highlighters where dominating the makeup scene and everyone was practically drippin’ with champagne-like glows! A liquid highlighter can also be used as a makeup base. Just mix a drop with your foundation and sport that dewy *glow from within* look!
This multipurpose blushes cum highlighter comes in so handy if you forgot to pack in a few makeup essentials. Just swirl your brush from top to bottom and bottom to down for a custom shade, always. The silver one is my favourite and it is almost as good as Fenty Beauty’s Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter.
Cannot afford Patrick Ta’s body glow oil or Rihanna’s body lava? Try this affordable alternative instead! Just take a pea-sized amount on your brush and apply it all over your collarbone and shoulders!
PS: Use a teeny-tiny drop as little goes a long way!
Are you ready to glow like there's no tomorrow?
