The best highlighter makeup products you can buy

For a high-impact highlight with an incredible shade range, you can’t go wrong with BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector.
The pressed powder formula is buildable, so you can wear it day or night.

My ride-or-die, desert island beauty product has to be a highlighter. It’s not that it’s my favorite to apply (I love the artistry of eyeshadow) or the thing that makes me look most human (that award goes to under-eye concealer, certainly). But nothing quite beats the thrill I get from turning my face toward the light and seeing the glowy flash of my cheekbone. That, my friends, you can only get with highlighter.

There are so many beautiful illuminators on the market, not to mention different formulas that give you varying, yet equally beautiful, affects — how can you possibly choose between them? My answer is that I basically don’t choose. I have dozens of highlighters and I’m not in a rush to whittle down my collection anytime soon.

If, however, you consider yourself a reasonable person who doesn’t need six versions of champagne gold highlight, I’m here to help you narrow things down. The options on this list vary from “natural” to “strobe light” in terms of intensity, but they all make you glow without emphasizing texture or making you look like the Tin Man — unless that’s the vibe you’re shooting for, in which case, it’s totally doable.

Here are the best highlighters you can buy:
Best highlighter overall: BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed
Best stick highlighter: Glossier Haloscope
Best natural highlighter palette: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
Best intense highlighter: Fenty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter
Best cream pot highlighter: Decorté Dip in Glow Cream Highlighter

The best highlighter overall

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector is the first word in highlighter, known for its intense glow and impressive shade range.

The first highlighter I ever fell in love with was Champagne Pop, a best-selling illuminator that BECCA Cosmetics developed in conjunction with YouTube star Jaclyn Hill. Though I now prefer dewier cream highlighters on a daily basis, it remains a staple in my collection.

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector is by far one of the most popular highlighter formulas on the market — the pressed powder formula alone has more than 5,000 Sephora reviews and a 4.6-star rating — and I consider it responsible for my personal highlighter awakening.

These highlighters manage to be intense without looking too wild for the office or a casual setting. I use a fan brush and a very light hand to apply the powdered version to my cheekbones for bold highlight, but they’re super buildable if you want to go “full glam” with your look.
