You don’t have to spend big to glow big. At just $9, the NYX Illuminator delivers an eye-catching shimmer that leaves skin looking radiant and instantly more refreshed. There’s an Illuminator to complement every skin tone, as the collection features five shades ranging from the natural nude Ritualistic and the champagne Narcissistic, to the striking peachy Magnetic, which sports a metallic sheen with hints of glitter.
There’s a lot to love about the very first liquid highlighter from L’Oréal Paris. The texture of the Liquid Glow Illuminator is lightweight and blendable, and the Golden, Rose and Ice shades are designed to flatter a wide range of complexions and undertones. Dab a little on the cheeks and blend upward with your fingers for an instant glow that demands attention. At $15, you’ll have a million dollar shimmer for the price of two lattes.
When it comes to highlighter, the general rule is to glow big or go home. The microfine shimmer in this highlighter looks radiant on cheekbones, but it’s also stunning when dusted on the shoulders and along the collarbone. Fun Fact: The powder’s brilliant color payoff is a result of being baked on a terra cotta disc for 24 hours, then finished by hand! Thirty bucks well spent, we say.
We’ve raved about our love for this highlighter before, but Maybelline Face Studio Master Hi-Light really is that good. Part blush, part highlighter, the product is a must-have for strobing newbies and comes in not one, but SIX color combinations like Pink Rose for fair skin tones and Deep Bronze for darker skin tones. The best part? They’re only $10!
For ladies trying to achieve a natural-looking glow with just a hint of shimmer, you’ve finally found your makeup match. A liquid with golden highlights, this strobing staple is $42, but anything that gives you the “lit-from-within” look is well worth the price.
