Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Moonstone
This has been my daily highlighter for a few years now! If you are starting out with makeup, this is the PERFECT option for you. It gives a beautiful warm white finish. Becca makes the best highlighters.
Lancome Dual Finish Highlighter 05 Sparkling Peche
I have been really impressed with Lancome products overall. I adore this pretty ‘peach’ color on my skin. I don’t always use pink-tinted highlighters, but this one is so fun for a girly look!
Josie Maran Argan Moonstone Drops Makeup Priming and Highlighting Oil:
This has become one of my favorites! The formula is so cool It’s in a dropper and you need a teeny tiny bit as a little goes a long way. Since it’s a liquid you just need to dab a little on your finger and spread it out where desired. I love how versatile this product is, and how this highlighter looks AMAZING with any makeup look!
Avon True Color Illuminating Stick in Rose Gold
This formula is pretty thick, so I use this product with full-coverage makeup only. It gives an amazing shade of pink and looks oh so glam!
Avon True Color Moonlit Highlighting Powder in Topaz
I wish I was tan enough to rock this on a daily basis, but I wanted to include this one because the gold shade is so lush and deep. This would look amazing on tan to dark skin tones. It’s the Midas touch!
Urban Decay Sin Afterglow Highlighter Palette in PSA
Absolutely love this palette! With 3 shades of blush and 3 shades of highlighter you will definitely get your money’s worth. This is a darker pink color that would look amazing on tan to dark skin!
Urban Decay Sin Afterglow Highlighter Palette in Spotlight
This light pink color is perfect for fair skin, or a day of lightweight makeup. Sometimes highlighter is the only thing I put on when I go out. There’s something so ethereal about shimmering highlighter. I can’t get over how cute this one is!
Urban Decay Sin Afterglow Highlighter Palette in Sin
A new favorite of mine, this shade layers on so well and looks incredible on the nose and cupid’s bow. This highlighter is wonderful for highlighting the face and its different features.
