No, I’m not talking about the neon colored markers that you use in your classes, but that shimmery goodness that makes your face glow. Depending on your preference, you might want a more natural glow or an extreme glow that is blinding. I am very passionate about having amazing highlighters because I think they can pull a whole look together and make you look more glam without using tons of products.
There are different kinds of highlighters, but the two most popular are liquid and powder. I personally prefer powder because I think it provides more glow, but liquid is great for when you want a more natural look. Here at Faviana we are all about empowering women so with that in mind we have gathered a list of three of the best highlighters that will make you feel your best whether you are at prom, work, or class.
1. Metal Crush Extreme Highlighter Palette – Kat Von D
If there is one thing you need to know about Kat Von D, it is that she is not afraid to be bold with her shades. In this case, this palette is extremely pigmented and will provide you with a glow that you can see from miles away. According to Sephora’s website, what gives these highlighters such a magnificent glow is their hyper reflective micro-crystals that sparkle at any given moment. This palette includes three different shades Gammaray, Helix and Roseshock. Gammaray provides a peachy shine, Helix provides an opal shine, and Roseshock gives a pink shine.
My personal favorite shade is Helix because it is so pigmented and goes well with any makeup look because it looks the most natural. This highlighter would look absolutely stunning alongside Faviana S10206 in the shade Bordeaux.
2. Hustla Baby/Mean Money – Fenty Beauty
Rihanna has done it yet again with Fenty Beauty with her new Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter. Hustla Baby provides a peachy champagne finish that will have your skin beaming of gorgeous radiance. Anything that makes me look more like Rihanna, means that you need it ASAP. The formula for Hustla Baby is liquid and cream and creates this smooth finish that melts into the skin effortlessly.
3. Sun Dipped Glow Kit – Anastasia Beverly Hills
Highlighter kits are great for those who want to have a variety of shades at their fingertips to complete any makeup look. This glow kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills includes four shades Bronzed, Summer, Tourmaline and Moonstone. These highlighters have a smooth and buttery consistency which make them blendable and easy to apply.
This was the first highlighter kit I ever owned and I still use it to this day. It has lasted me over a year because you really do not need to apply that much product in order to get a pigmented shimmer.
