Whether you are absolutely over contouring or — like us — you’re still clutching tightly to your contouring stick, you can’t pretend that highlighters and illuminators haven’t caught your attention this year. Designed to lend the appearance of dewy, glowing skin, the art of highlighting the cheeks, nose and Cupid’s bow is flooding Instagram feeds and Pinterest boards everywhere … you literally can’t escape it. We love to get a nice shine on, so when some of our favorite brands sent over some of their best and brightest to try on for size, we couldn’t refuse. Whether you want an affordable pressed powder or a luxurious illuminating liquid, these are the top highlighters you should know before you glow.
