Beauty trends come and go, but the sculpted, three-dimensional, glowing cheekbones never go out of style. If highlighting is not part of your daily makeup routine, then right now is a good time to start. While powder highlighters have always been around, liquid highlighters are often less talked about. Whether you're looking for a subtle glow, or aiming for a glitter-heavy shine, here is a quick round up of liquid highlighters that you should consider picking up on your next shopping haul:
Oil-free and dermatologically tested, the hybrid formula of Tarteist™ PRO glow liquid highlighter can mixed easily with your tinted moisturizer, or foundation, to get a naturally illuminating coverage. Use a blending sponge or your fingertips to highlight the high-points on your face like the cheekbones, brow bones, inner corner of the eye and cupid’s bow. The Tarteist™ PRO glow liquid highlighter contains: a) Mineral pigments that soften and soothe the skin. b) Rosa damascena flower water that is distilled from fresh rose blossoms, and calms the skin. c) Squalane, a naturally occurring skin emollient that retains and delivers skin moisture.
For a more intense strobing glow, you can also pair this liquid highlighter, with the Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour powder highlighter. Available in a convenient squeezable tube packaging, the Tarteist™ PRO glow is very creamy, and is super buildable (goes from sheer to opaque). With ultra-concentrated pearls and pigments, prepare to get a healthy, dewy glow, no matter what your skin-tone is!
With high-performance crystals, and 100 percent pure Argan oil, the Argan Enlightenment Illuminizer by Josie Maran promises skin nourishment and a radiant glow. Infused with Ancient daffodil, Madonna lily, and Poet’s narcissus, the highlighter evens and brightens your skin tone to bring out the lit-from-within face glow. Mix it with your oil, moisturizer or foundation, and experience the magic of coloured luster pigments, as they capture and reflect the light off your skin. The champagne hue of the Argan Enlightenment Illuminizer matches the natural glow of healthy skin, and the creamy application offers a uniform spread. The pump packaging holds 15 mL of product, and retails for $26 on Sephora.
Opt for a sun-kissed tint or a buildable intense glow, with the Custom Enhancer Drops brought to you by Cover FX. Formulated with high-definition and ultra-refined pearls, you can either use the highlighter alone or add two customizable drops on top of your powder, your regular foundation or your favourite skincare product, for a liquid metal finish. The luminosity increases with the number of drops, so you have ample opportunity to customize your ideal glow to complete your overall look. Use a beauty sponge, brush or simply your fingertips to use the product. The Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops comes in a nifty dropper-accompanied bottle, that retails for $42.
4. BECCA SHIMMERING SKIN PERFECTOR® LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER:
