Top 5 Spring Highlighters

Top 5 Spring Highlighters

Highlighters are a great way of adding radiance and luminosity to the skin. They come in many colours, textures and finishes, but essentially they all work to the same goal: enhancing your complexion. They are great for boosting your natural glow when your skin looks tired and washed out, but they’re also fabulous for using elsewhere on the face. They can be used as all-over primers to increase your overall radiance, as under-eye concealers to make your eyes appear brighter, under the brow bone to lift your eyebrows, and on top of the lips to highlight your cupid’s bow.

How to achieve Radiant and Luminous Skin

We have selected our top 5 highlighters for the spring season in a range of formulas and finishes to show you how they can be used on different parts of the face.

    Estée Lauder Double Wear Brush-on Glow BB Highlighter

    While this may not look like a traditional highlighter, the glow-enhancing formula adds incredible radiance to the skin. What’s even more amazing about this product is that it also doubles as a concealer, so you can perfect and correct any blemishes while brightening your skin. We love to use this under our eyes to cancel out discolouration, puffiness and dark circles, and leave us with bright and wide-awake eyes.

    Benefit Girl Meets Pearl

    This multipurpose highlighter from Benefit can be used as a primer to boost the overall radiance of your skin and as a highlighter itself to use on cheekbones. You can either mix it into your foundation for a dewy finish, or apply on its own for a natural glow. The formula has a beautiful raspberry scent, which we absolutely adore as it brightens our mood in the morning! With added light-reflecting pigments, this highlighter is great when your skin needs that extra glow.

    theBalm Cindy Loumanizer

    While its sister, Mary Lou may be the more famous sibling highlighter, this peachy-rose shade adds a gorgeous radiance to the skin. We love to use this in the spring when we want a pale peachy glow to highlight our features. Simply apply to the top of your cheekbones for a beautiful radiance. You can also use this on your eyes for a wash of colour and sparkle, as well as on the apples of your cheeks if you want more of a shimmer effect.

    Perricone MD No Highlighter Highlighter

    This serum based formula is a great choice if you don’t like powder formulations. The Vitamin C enriched liquid is also infused with anti-inflammatory technology, which helps to calm down any irritation and redness on the surface of the skin. It helps to naturally illuminate without appearing too glittery; making it a great choice for accentuating facial features such as the brow bone, cupid’s bow, cheek contours and the bridge of the nose.

    New Cid Cosmetics I-Glow - Ice Pop

    This mix of shades including Terracotta, Cream and Soft-Plum is great for accentuating a natural tan or providing a soft warmth to the skin. Unlike traditional highlighters which add a slight shimmer, the highly pigmented colours of this palette add a gentle bronze to the complexion without looking too orange or dark. We love to use this when our skin looks tired and washed out and is need of a radiance boost.
