Shine Bright Like A Diamond: Highlighters That You Have To Add To Your Makeup Kit


Glowing, youthful-looking skin is always in. Need proof? Just take a look at the ultimate trendsetters of Instagram. Kim Kardashian, JLo, Zendaya, Dua Lipa – they always look radiant, with subtle shine in all the right places. We know what you’re thinking: Obviously, they have the best glam squad, and they go to some of the top dermats in the world. But while that’s true, it doesn’t mean that you can’t fake it till you make it. That’s when highlighters come in handy. 

This glistening accent can breathe new life into a minimally made-up face or be the cherry on top of a full beat. Either way, it’s a must-do step in any beauty routine. Since highlighter is the glue that holds the whole luminous endeavour together, we dropped our faves for your viewing pleasure. Whether you’re looking to subtly glisten in the sun or a glow so bright you’ll need sunglasses, we’ve got you covered with these top picks.

To Steal The Show

If you love a liquid highlighter, this is the highlighter to call on. It feels undetectable, and the glow factor is buildable, super wearable, and totally believable. Beauty mavens praise it for exactly that, noting that it’s perfect for everyday use. We especially love the doe-foot applicator, which makes it easy to dot the perfect amount onto the strategic spots you want to highlight.

For An Otherworldly Glow

We’re big fans of any and every kind of stick product, largely for the ease of use – just swipe and go and this product is no different. The glow factor is noticeable, yet subtle. Folks who swear by an au naturel look will love this balmy stick highlighter. It imparts a healthy, iridescent finish, much like that dewy shine you get after a facial.

To Turn Heads

The role of a highlighter is to illuminate your face and give it a boost of radiance. We recommend opting for this lightweight highlighter that’s neither too textured nor too heavy. Creamy and liquid formulas work best for a glowing, dewy complexion. Just apply it on the inner corner of your eyes, on the brow bone, above the cheekbone, lips and the bridge of your nose to nail a model-esque glow.

For The Next-Level Glow

Full disclosure: We fell in love with this highlighter. The reason? It’s really bold and pigmented, but it’s also super-wearable. All you have to do is create a silky-smooth canvas to set the highlighter pigments up for success. The best part is that it also doubles as an eyeshadow and can be used to don the on the moment glittery eye trend.

To Rock That Insta-Worthy Gleam

We can’t get enough of this dreamy highlighter, repeatedly singing its praises and sharing how many compliments we get when wearing it. The velvety formula melts beautifully into the skin leaving it with a selfie-worthy glow. This is a makeup must-have and all you need to score flawless skin anytime, anywhere. 

To Turn Up The Heat

Here’s the thing: you can find highlighters in all kinds of pretty shades, but if you like to keep things subtle and just let your natural skin shine through, opt for a clear variant like this one. It has a beautiful glossy finish and feels super lightweight on the skin. The best part? It’s not in the least bit sticky or tacky, just hydrating and nice.
