Looking to glow without looking overly glazed? Even though the highlighter game within the beauty community is very strong, when it comes to our day-to-day makeup look, we usually aim for a more natural sheen.
The trick to finding a good everyday highlight? Make sure the products don’t contain glitter particles or are overly shined with pearlescence. Don’t get us wrong, we want all the glitter and shimmer from time to time, but when we want to be a little less blinding, we go for the products listed below.
The coveted RMS Luminizer had to make an appearance on this list. The all-natural brand has mastered this formula, which makes your cheekbones pop in the most natural light-catching way. We love how easy this creamy product blends without looking greasy or sticky on the face.
Primers can be a highlighter, too! The much-loved Becca Backlight Priming Filter is ideal for those with drier skin types who desire an overall glow. This primer under makeup or mixed in with foundation will bring light to all the right places on your face.
The Hourglass powders are some of the softest and most finely-milled formulas out there. These powders give a subtle glow while setting the rest of your base, making you shine even on the dullest of days. The Ambient powders can be swept over the entire face without accentuating pores and texture.
Touche Eclat pens from YSL are the perfect liquid illuminator for a natural yet beaming highlight. Apply the colors in the center of the face for a more highlighting effect, or keep it to the high points of the face to really allow your best assets to catch the spotlight.
Victoria Beckham is seriously glowing goddess #goals, so we’re very much anticipating her collaboration with Estee Lauder. This unique multi-purpose product is a highlighting gloss that is very much balm-like. Apply to the shoulders, cheeks, lips — pretty much anywhere you want to look lit from within!
Perfect for the makeup minimalist who just wants a sweep of shimmer to the cheekbones, Glossier’s Haloscope shades are great for all skin tones, and bring the best kind of dewy highlight to the face. The creamy formula is easy to blend, can be built up for a more intense highlight, and, most importantly, makes you look sun-kissed and illuminated in the subtlest way.
