I have to admit, I am a fan of highlighters. I just love the way the cosmetic strip makes my cheekbones pop! For those just getting into cosmetics, highlighters will light up your favorite features with high impact, ultra-reflective shine.
There are dozens of highlighters on the market with prices ranging from $2.99 to $40.00. You can purchase the highlighters from drugstores to high-end department stores. As you can see, there are a wide variety from which to choose. These are the highlighters I am loving now:
- J.CAT BEAUTY – color “Twilight”. This baked highlighter has a multi-dimensional formula which will bring immediate glow with an enhanced shimmer pigment. The highlighter compliments nearly all skintones, blends easily and gives that perfect dazzling finish to complete your look. J. Cat Beauty costs $9.00, and may be purchased at ULTA and Wal-Mart.
- TARTE AMAZONIAN CLAY HIGHLIGHTER – color “Exposed”. This 12 hour highlighter is available in a wide range of luminous shades which brightens and awakens the high points on your facial features. This skin perfecting formula will not cling to any dry patches, it will not flake or fade. The Tarte Amazonian Clay Highlighter costs $29.00. It may be purchased at Sephora, ULTA or www.tartecosmetics.com.
- TOO FACED DIAMOND LIGHT MULTI-USE HIGHLIGHTER COLOR – color “Diamond Fire”. This rainbow highlighter is infused with crushed diamond powder and light reflecting pearls. You will dazzle your complexion with dual tone shades which shift with light and movement. The The Too Faced Diamond Light Multi-Use Highlighter will give you buildable payoff for a customized highlight. The cost of the Too Faced Diamond Light Multi-Use Highlighter is $34.00. It is available at Sephora, ULTA and www.toofaced.com.
- REVOLUTION SKIN KISS HIGHLIGHTER – color “Golden Kiss”. This “crushed pigmented highlighter” will allow you to accentuate the peaks of your cheekbones, your nose, arch of your eyebrows and cupid’s bow. Skin Kiss is dense in texture, almost cream like. It definitely takes a heavy hand to get some product on the brush. It should also be noted it is more metallic than other highlighters. It requires some buffing for a more natural appearance. But still, a beautiful highlighter in the end. The Revolution Skin Kiss Highlighter costs $9.00. It may be purchased at www.revolutionbeauty.com, ULTA and Amazon.
Highlighter powders help conceal redness and give your skin clarity like a soft ray of sunshine. Some mimic the softest, most forgiving light and aids in the brightening of your complexion. Importantly, all of the above listed highlighters are cruelty free.
