You really can’t go wrong with some Fenty, Anastasia Beverly Hills, or the classic Wet N Wild and Maybelline drugstore favorites. See what you’re missing out on below!
1. Maybelline FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter
$9.99 dollars for a great highlighter! The highlight can be layered and layered but will never get to be too much! Use some setting spray to wet the brush or skin before application and you’ll have a hell of a glow. How can you go wrong with a budget highlight that will get the same pay-off as an Anastasia Beverly Hills highlight? A lil tip: The Rose Gold Shade is THE best of all three!
2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Sugar Glow Kit
Coming in at $40 dollars for four shades, this glow kit is every part glow as it is goals. The kit has two pink shades and two yellow undertoned shades so that everyone can find a favorite. To be more specific there is White Pearl a white gold tone, Gumdrop a duo chrome pink lilac, Butterscotch a honey gold, and my personal favorite Starburst an icy pink shade. The shades in this kit are beyond sparkly, addicting and will attract all the glow compliments you deserve.
To get the most out of your glow, use your favorite setting spray on the face before applying the highlight or wet your highlight brush before dipping into the pan. I promise the $40 dollars is a worthwhile price for the product you’ll be spending that good money on. Think about it: four shades for endless highlighted looks!
3. Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder
Six shades at what price you ask? $5.49 dollars! I mean seriously this drugstore highlight is at a great price for the amount of payoff you receive. It doesn’t have a ton of kickback which is amazing for a powder highlight at this price. Plus, it also looks great layered on top of another highlight, or just by itself for a cute lil glow.
Even though it is a powder it has a wet look no matter if you use setting spray to set it down on your face or just put it on dry. Honestly, everyone needs this affordable Wet N Wild highlight in their collection!
4. Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb All-Over Veil
This all over the body highlight comes in a pentagon-shaped compact and works on every skin tone as the perfect glimmery highlight! Put it on with a light or strong brush stroke and it’ll light you up with an amazing out of this world sparkling highlight. For extra shine, you can use it over an already applied highlight or just use it by itself. Either way, it’ll deliver you the natural yet sun hugging glimmer that’ll be blinding the haters left and right.
The Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb is also created in mind without any parabens, sulfates or phthalates and the products in the Fenty Beauty line are all cruelty-free making it a product and brand that is easily supportable. Rihanna says about this particular highlighter, “You can never have enough diamonds! This is the closest thing to bathing in it. The sparkle in this is just insane!”
5. Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter
With nine shades of highlight, you get your pick of amazing, long-wear, and cream to powder shades that will take one swipe to receive the glow you’re looking for! With four solo shades and five paired duo compacts, you’ll be getting the most out of this best-selling highlight.
6. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder
This is just what it says it is: more of a lighting powder to set a toned down highlight rather than a blinding glow. It works perfectly over any matte foundation bringing the shine from within onto your skin. This lighting powder comes in six beautiful shades and they also come in mini sizes on Sephora just in case you want to give it a try before splurging on the $48 dollar product.
The powder claims to diffuse and soften the look of skin, meaning that instead of using a highlighter that will showcase texture and pores, this powder will tone down the appearance of both texture and pores while giving you the best natural glow. Hourglass’s products are also 100 percent cruelty-free meaning you can spend more money knowing it will go somewhere decent!
