The sunshine may be leaving us, but the glow is here to stay! There are a lot of new highlighters making their way onto the shelves this season – so which are best? We took it upon ourselves to test out the competition and deliver our favourite shimmery and luminescent illuminators that will have you glowing throughout the gloomy months ahead!
Hyper Real Glow Palette
M.A.C Cosmetics / $79.0
Available in two gorgeous palettes, MAC’s latest highlighters only lau
nched last month but are making waves in the beauty world. Featuring three pressed, highly pigmented buttery shades, there’s a suitable colour for every skin tone at all times of the year. For a golden, sun kissed look, the get it glowin’ palette is the ideal option for summer and warmer skin tones. If you are fair and cooler-toned – flash + awe is the perfect go-to, containing pink and peachy hues.
Hollywood Flawless Filter
Charlotte Tilbury / $65.00
A completely new category in makeup, this brand new product from Charlotte Tilbury is revolutionary. Acting as a primer before foundation application, the Hollywood Flawless Filter achieves a soft, smooth and illuminated base. However, this product can also be mixed in with your foundation to create a bright, effortless appearance.
Dewy Stix Luminous Highlighting Balm
Mecca Cosmetica / $38.00
Ciaté London’s dewy stix balm is quite possibly the simplest product on the list to apply. Featuring a rounded ball look, this cream-based product glides over the skin creating a dewy, easy to blend highlight. With three colours that blend to all skin tones, this balm fits great in your handbag for bright touch-ups throughout the day.
Sephora / $24.00
There’s something so appealing about the texture of gel highlighters! The jelly- like consistency of Zoeva’s strobe gel creates an intense highlight that is also buildable to achieve any desired look. We recommend lightly applying with fingertips and blending out with a beauty blender.
Multi-Use Diamond Fire Highlighter
Mecca Cosmetica / $49.00
On first look, you can’t help but want to swatch this holographic looking illuminator. Too Faced’s latest powder compact, the multi-use diamond fire highlighter needs only a very light tap of the brush, as the colour pay-off is intense. Infused with crushed diamond powder and light-reflecting pearls, you’ll not only look fancy – you’ll feel it too, with this one of a kind product!
Custom Strobing Drop
Myer & David Jones / $50.00
This liquid drop illuminator from Lancôme, dropped five days ago – and we can’t get enough! The product is quite thin so a little goes a long way. Using the attached pipette, apply two to three drops across your each cheek bone and blend out with fingers, beauty sponge or brush.
