Best highlighters!!

Hey guys!
Today’s post is on my favorite beauty product ever: highlighters! I wear highlighter almost everyday because it makes me looks so much more awake and alert. Over the months/years I have collected quite a few highlighters, so I’m going to share with some with you my favorites! Just for reference, I’m around a MAC NW25, so if you are around my skin tone, these highlighters will look beautiful on you!
The Becca shimmering skin perfector in champagne pop is my number one highlighter. It looks beautiful on my skintone, and gives great glow, and a little bit of color to my cheeks. Although this is quite expensive, I think it’s totally worth the price because a little goes such a long way!




Another favorite from becca is the liquid highlighter in opal. I’m not a fan of the pressed version of this because I find it looks too ashy on me, but the liquid is beautiful! I love mixing this with foundation, using it as a primer, and using it as a regular highlighter.
The MAC cream colour base in pearl is something Jamie (jamiepaigebeauty on youtube) talked about so much so, naturally, I needed it, and honestly, you do to! It gives the most beautiful intense (or natural) highlight and is PERFECT for light skin tones.
Benefit watt's up is something I feel doesn’t get enough recognition on youtube and the interweb. This is more of a gold highlighter, and it’s definitely the darkest I would go, but I still find it looks great on my skin tone and the formula is really good!

The hourglass ambient lighting trio is a favorite amongst many bloggers and vloggers. I love it for many different reasons, but mainly for the highlighter shade (the middle color). These powders are really soft and natural on the skin, so if you have more mature skin, or just like a more natural highlight, these powders would be your best bet!
The last highlighter is one that I have a love hate relationship with. The physician's formula color brick in nude is an INCREDIBLE drugstore highlighter. Since it’s in a brick format, you can customize the highlight color. I know kathleenlights, and youngwildandpolished love this highlighter so I know it must be good! My only issue is that it breaks me out. I can’t use this product anymore, but my sister used it and she had no issues. If you are looking for a great drugstore highlighter, i would try this one because I have never heard of anyone else breaking out from it!
WOW, that’s a lot of highlighters! In my opinion, highlighters are a must for anyone who wants to look healthy, and glowy!
Let me know what your favorite highlighters are, because I am always looking for a new one to try!

Thanks so much for reading :)
XOXO,
Shadow
