Highlighter is staple in my makeup routine. It helps me to achieve a radiant and awake look each day. I can add a small amount to a bare face on my scrub days and make it look like I actually slept, or I can add some perfectly placed highlighter to any glam look and become red carpet worthy.

I have quite a few highlighter products in my makeup collection. Some producing a subtle glow and others providing a more in your face, beaming glow. Below are my TOP 5 highlighters that are (IMO) the absolute best.

Check it out!

When I want to make a statement and have all eyes on me, my go to is my Jeffree Star Cosmetic highlighter.  All I can say is, boy knows how to create a seriously amazing highlighter. It’s a wonderful creamy formula and trust me you will GLOW! For the days that I really don’t feel like doing much in terms of makeup and look like I haven’t slept in a year, I tend to use my Thrive Causemetics highlighter. This highlighter is particularly wonderful around your eyes. It instantly makes you look like you actually slept and are awake. It’s subtle and effective. It works best with a bare face or natural makeup. The other highlighters are reserved for my in between looks. 

So there you have it, my tried and true favorite highlighters of the moment.  These never fail to give me that glow, that make me feel confident and beautiful throughout the day!



For a bit of pop and glow, try using a highlighter as an eyeshadow!
