Top 5 Highlighters

Don’t ever let anyone dim your glow!

I think this quote has become redundant with the downpour of the latest and the trendiest highlighters available. Is it a merry chase to yearn for that perfect youthful glow from teenage years? Not any more, thanks to all the makeup companies around the world working day in and day out mixing elements and creating that perfect portion for beauty that sparkles.

A great highlighter will not only brighten your complexion but it can also be used to accentuate your best features and to tone down any signs of aging, it definitely is a cherry on top. If your makeup essentials are missing a highlighter you really need step up your game. I have listed down top five highlighters that took my makeup game to a whole new level and will surely pump up yours!

Champagne Pop from Becca Cosmetics

If it was practically possible to see a highlighter from space it would be hands down the Champagne Pop from Becca Cosmetics. The powder has silk-like appeal that surely glides on to the face with much ease and perfection. The creamy moist pressed powder surely gives one an ethereal glow.  P.s I broke mine recently and trust me a heart break would have been much easier to deal with.


Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator

The Laura Geller’s Glided Honey Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator has just the right amount of gold perfect for a day time look. The product has a luminous sheen which is long lasting and doesn’t disappoint! It is not over the top but the application of a few coats makes it is a perfect product for a natural dewy look.


Mary-Lou Manizer by TheBalm Cosmetics

If drama is what you’re looking for then Mary-Lou Manizer by TheBalm Cosmetics is a must buy. Highly pigmented and quite visible in pictures this highlighter is surely one of my favorites. With a yellow undertone which compliments almost all complexions, this one will surely turn you into a shimmering gleaming goddess sent from above.
