Let it GLOW: My Favorite Highlighters

I am absolutely obsessed with highlighters. No makeup look is complete without a highlight, and I make sure to cover my entire face in whichever product I am using. Here are my top picks for highlighters…

Jeffree Star SKIN FROST

If you haven’t heard of Jeffree Star, look him up. He gained 5 million YouTube subscriptions basically overnight, on top of having an extremely successful cosmetics company. Everything Jeffree creates is amazing, but his Skin Frosts have to be my favorite. These highlighters are about the size of my face, and come pristinely packaged with a high quality compact and mirror. The formula is so easy to work with, and the highlight is BLINDING. Jeffree Star’s Skin Frosts are my top pick for highlighters. My favorite shades are “Summer Snowcone” and “Neffree.”  shop Jeffree Star Cosmetics

Charlotte Tilbury
Filmstar Bronze and Glow ($68) & Hollywood Beauty Light Wand ($39)

All of Charlotte Tilbury’s products are flawless. I was introduced to her products this past summer and I have been in love ever since. The highlighter from the Filmstar Bronze and Glow palette is so pigmented and can be enhanced by using a setting spray when applying. The Hollywood Beauty Light Wand is a newer product for me, but nonetheless has blown me away. This is the perfect highlighter if you want a light, dewey look. shop Charlotte Tilbury



This is a highlighter in it’s most pure, pigmented form. The Cover FX Custom Enhancer drops are liquid magic. Pure pigment, you can squeeze a few drops into your favorite foundation, body lotion, or face moisturizer. You can also apply this product directly to the skin (I recommend using a damn beauty sponge or your fingers). The shade range has something for every skin tone, and you will blind people all day long. shop Cover FX



Anastasia Beverly Hills: SUGAR GLOW KIT

The first highlighter I ever used was Anastasia Beverly Hills and I have so many good things to say about this brand. Their specialty is definitely eyebrows, but their highlighters do not disappoint. The Glow Kits have been extremely popular, completely selling out in record time. I recently was gifted the Sugar Glow Kit and I am a major fan. The formula and quality of these highlighters is outstanding and the Glow Kits offer such a great variety of colors. I find the Glow Kits last a very long time, so this is a great option if you are looking to invest in some high end makeup. shop ABH



Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed Highlighter-$38

Becca has always had a great reputation for their highlighters, but I had not tried one for myself until recently. I am so glad I did because these highlighters are amazing. The color I have is Champagne Pop, which was co-created by beauty influencer Jaclyn Hill. I would recommend this highlighter if you are looking for pigment that you can build up. check out Jaclyn Hill’s YouTube channel and shop Becca.

This is the best purchase I have ever made at a drug store. You can find this highlighter at Ulta, Walgreens, CVS, and any drug store near you. This is one of the best highlighters of all time and it is only $10. This highlighter is creamy, blinding, and absolutely amazing. If you want to try out a highlighter but don’t know where to begin, start with Maybaline’s Master Chrome. You will not regret it. shop Maybaline
