10 Highlighters That Will Get You Glowing
(SPOT.ph) Thanks to strobing, sporting fresh, dewy, and glowing skin is all the rage in the beauty department. Strobing is just a fancy way of saying "use your highlighters!" because they're all you need.
Strobing, which is a beauty trend that spills over from 2015, is a makeup technique which uses light to define your face while giving it a healthy, dewy glow. The trick is to apply the product over the high points of your face: the nosebridge, brow bone, cheek bones, and even on your cupid's bow—and blend, blend, blend. You'll be glowing in the right places in no time! We round up 10 highlighters that will make your face light up—almost effortlessly.
Watt's Up! Highlighter (P1,600) from Benefit
Benefit's best-selling highlighter comes with a twist-up stick on one end and a blending sponge on the other—which makes it a very handy product. It's a champagne (peachy-gold) highlighter-to-powder formula which you apply on the bridge of the nose, the brow bones, and cheek bones. Use the blending sponge to get that luminous gleam.
Glisten Up! Highlighter Cheek Stick (P799) from Happy Skin
Perfect for girls on the go, Happy Skin's newest product is all about being handy (quite literally), and giving your skin a healthy glow. The champagne-hued highlighter comes in a twist-up tube, allowing you to strobe wherever, whenever. Just apply it on the high points of your face and blend with your fingertips!
Highlighting Palette (P875) from Sleek MakeUP
Aside from swivel-up tubes and powders, highlighters come in palette form, too. This one contains three creamy highlighting formulas and one bronzer. All shades have a warm glowy base that are packed with high intensity shimmer (we promise you won't look like Edward Cullen). The palette comes with a brush, but the formula is creamy enough to apply and blend using your fingertips.
Face Illuminator (P825) from Revlon
If you're looking for something that's liquid and lightweight, Revlon's Face Illuminators promise to give you that lit-from-within look, without making your skin look or feel cakey. Their highlighter is infused with light-capturing crystals and photochromatic pigments to give your skin a brighter and fresher look. You can even mix it with your foundation for a subtle, overall glow!
Glowing Complexion Tinted Illuminating in Cream (P229) from City Color
For a healthy glow, your skin must first be moisturized. This illuminating cream from City Color promises to hydrate your skin while giving it a dewy shine. It has a translucent pearly finish and a lovely rose scent, too! The cream formula can also be applied first before putting on your foundation.
Liquid Highlighter Afterglow (P670) from Sigma Beauty
Don't underestimate this cute little tube. This champagne-hued liquid highlighter has a pink undertone that will brighten your look in a few brush strokes. Apply it over or under your makeup, it promises to deliver the perfect touch of light and a pearlized glow. The long-wearing formula is perfect for the heat, too!
Aquatix Shimmer Pearls 01 (P299) from Essence
These little pearls look too pretty to touch, but they can level up your beauty look with few swirls. The pink casing carries shimmery powder in the form of pretty little pearls (like the famous Guerlain Meteorites!). The pearls come in three different shades while delivering just the right amount of shimmer for your skin to look radiant. Just swirl your brush inside the container and over your skin and voila—a bright and healthy glow!
Strobe Cream (P2,000) from MAC
We just found the ultimate key for overall dewy skin—the MAC Strobe Cream. The easiest way to do this is to mix the pearly white formula with your foundation and apply normally...and that's it! If you want to take your look up a notch, apply it over your makeup just on the high points of your face and blend. The formula is sheer and leaves no trace of glitter—just a luminous glow that promises to stay for hours on end.
Illuminator Powder (P590) from NYX
Powder highlighters are the easiest way to control how much light you want your skin to reflect. This best-selling highlighter from NYX promises to make skin look younger and smoother and give it a subtle, natural glow, thanks to its radiant shimmer. Using a brush, just swipe the product over the bridge of your nose, the center of your forehead, and over your cheekbones. You can also dab a small amount on the inner corners of your eyes and on your cupid's bow for a brighter gaze and a fuller pout!
Illuminating Fluid (P995) from Art Deco
Formulated with vitamin E and hyaluronic acid, this illuminating fluid nurtures the skin while giving it a youthful glow. It promises to be lightweight, allowing it to glide easily onto the skin while leaving a fine veil of shimmer. You can even mix it with moisturizer, foundation, or body lotion. Your skin will be radiant from head to toe!
