Omg, I’ve been obsessed with highlighters and shimmery products since I was a kid. Finally, the rest of the beauty world and the new generation of makeup lovers have caught up, and highlighters are finally having a moment. With highlighters and bronzers being such a “thing” now, we decided to post and make a video about them. (See the bronzer post here.)
Make sure to check out the short video at the bottom to see swatches. Don’t forget to show us some love- please give us a “thumbs-up” and subscribe to our channel!
My favorite liquid highlighter has got to be the NARS Orgasm Illuminator. The color is gorgeous, and it wears very well, even on my oily/combination skin.
Manna Kadar 3-in-1 Eyeshadow, Blush, and Highlighter in “Fantasy” is a great product. It’s formula is a bit coarse, but once you put it on, it’s got a really nice effect, not too over-the-top, a bit more subtle. But, you can build it up if you’d like a more dramatic glow.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Illuminator is anything BUT subtle. This has larger pieces of shimmer than other highlighters, and I don’t use this on my face. But, it applies very easily, and it’s great for shoulders and the collarbone area.
NARS Miss Liberty is another great option if you like a more dramatic shimmer, but with particles a bit smaller than the Urban Decay. This is grouped in with the brand’s blushes, and it’s super-duper fab!
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Gold was the first one I got from the brand, while it was still limited edition. The formula, although pressed powder, is actually creamy. It applies like a dream, and looks stunning. Of course, the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Face Palette is to die for- it has not only the Champagne Pop, but also the new Prosecco Pop.
In addition to the Shimmering Skin Perfectors, Becca makes some great Beach Tint Souffles that are kind of a blush/highlighter hybrid. They are SO perfect for summer, especially now with the popularity of shiny glowy faces! Check out four of them in the video below.
