The Best: Highlighter

The Best: Highlighter
I feel like highlighter has just made it to the big screen of makeup in the last few years.
Many people I know still haven't taken advantage of its magic abilities to transform your face.
Highlighter is one of my favorite parts about makeup and sometimes I leave the house with only it and mascara. It makes a world of difference.

   This is one of Benefit's most famous products.  This liquid highlighter allows for perfect placement and blends beautifully.  *Tip: Use your fingers rather than a brush to get a more natural finish. 

   This product does it all! Not only can it be used as merely highlighter, BUT also as an allover face powder! And no, I pinky promise you won't have sparkle allover your face.  The powder is so finely milled you will be left with an angelic glow. (There are 6 shades to the collection that work for all skin tones!)

   Product and sponge in one! This highlighter is perfect for any on the go girl.  Swipe, blend, and your'e all done (no mirror needed, it's that easy!). 

   This is my ALL TIME favorite highlighter! Perfectly pigmented and leaves an incredibly smooth finish.  The golden tone is also perfect to be used as an everyday eye shadow, brow bone color, and to highlight the inner tear ducts.  What is even nicer, is that the packaging is HUGE! One of these will last you years, even with everyday use.  I have had mine for about 6 months and it looks like I have barely used any.  

    This copy-cat YSL 'Touche Eclat' highlighting pen from Maybelline is the best drugstore highlighter I could find unfortunately.  Though it is labeled as a concealer I would use it only on the high points of the face for highlighting purposes because it can be quite drying under the eyes.  

How do you use your highlighter and what are you favorites?


  1. I use High Beam and it's seriously the most amazing thing ever! I originally started using highlighter just because it was fun to put on, I never really thought there would be a difference but there really is! It really just livens up your face and not to be conceited but in certain lighting (especially low) it looks soooo pretty.


  2. I need to get my hands on some ASAP. I'm a die hard Mary-Lou Manizer fan but I definitely need a cream formula in my life.
