Best Highlighters

Highlighter is one of the worst kept beauty secrets. If you want to fake a healthy glow, it’s not really bronzer you’re after — it’s highlighter.

Available in powder, liquid, or cream forms, with or without shimmer, the amount of highlighters available are endless. However, not all highlighters are created equal. Just like foundation, not every highlighter is made for every skin tone. In this post, we’ve rounded up our favourite highlighters for different types of skin.
