Blinding Highlighters

Have you ever wanted NASA to see your glow from the international space station? Yes? No? Well that’s my goal on a daily basis!

I think my favorite makeup products are definitely highlighters. In my opinion highlighters take your makeup game to the next level and really just add some definition to your face. There are obviously a multitude of finishes in highlighters from more subtle to tin man, but today I want to focus on some of the most blinding highlighters that I own.

Goddess of Faith

Makeup Revolution’s Triple Baked Highlighter in Goddess of Faith has to be my absolute favorite drugstore highlighter. It is extremely pigmented and so in your face. I love to mix this highlighter with other options on this list if I am looking for an extreme glow or I want to add more of a champagne color to them.

This highlighter looks AMAZING with Jouer’s Citrine highlighter. If you are looking for a cheap option to glow with, I definitely recommend you start here. Makeup Revolution has two other options for baked highlighters, Goddess of Love and Golden Goddess, so you are sure to be glowing with any skin tone!

Citrine

In my opinion this can now be considered a cult favorite. When Jouer hit the beauty scene, this highlighter was all anyone talked about, and for good reason. This is definitely one of my favorite high end highlighters because it can go from really subtle to blinding just with the stroke of a brush. That is great because that means I can wear this on a daily basis to the office as well as when I’m getting super glammed up.

The color is this beautiful shimmering gold, but it looks great on all skin tones.  I was a bit worried to see how it would turn out on my fair skin, but it still looks fabulous! I am dying to get my hands on their Rose Quartz highlighter, which is a shimmering champagne pink.

Anastasia Beverly Hills

Now obviously ABH has a ton of highlighters. They first came out with the singles and then the glow kits hit the market. I personally ran out of my house to get the first glow kit, because they were just to die for. For my fair skin I went and grabbed the Gleam kit.

Unfortunately, I think this palette was limited edition, but if they ever come out with something similar make sure you snag one of these up. The darker colors look intimidating for lighter skin tones, but I swirl all four together and the highlight is just beautiful. This is also another that can be built up from subtle to poppin’.

I also want to mention the ABH Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit, which actually just came out a few months ago.

This was also limited edition but I needed to mention it solely for that fact that it is extremely blinding! This is another one where all of the colors looked great mixed together, but my absolute favorite is the white one, Forever Lit, because I glow to the Gods after applying that.

Becca 

Of course Becca is going to be on a blinding highlighters list. Becca practically made the highlighter scene popular. My favorite from their collection is the pressed highlighter in Pearl. Again, as a fair girl I am drawn to lighter highlighters as that is what shows up on my skin the best. However, I feel like pearl would work with a ton of skin tones.

Pearl

The formula is very creamy and buildable, which makes it a great option for day-to-day wear. It also isn’t a chunky highlight as the pigment is very smooth and ultra-reflective. I have also tried Moonstone and Opal from the collection and they are equally impressive. Make sure you check out this cult favorite!

Arella Luxe

Finally, an online brand called Arella Luxe has these beautiful Diamond Dust Loose Highlighters. Diamond Dust is a great name for these are they shine bright like a diamond once applied! I actually won this highlighter in an Instagram giveaway, but I would totally repurchase more shades of this!

Not only is this highlighter super blinding, it also doubles great as an eye pigment to keep you sparkling all night long. The color I have is in Ice Cold and honey YASSS!!! Not only is this blinding, but it is super affordable at only $6.00 right now! Go snag these up quick!
