Moisturizing Face Balms That You Can Use as HighlighterMarch 24, 2021
We’re suckers for a blinding highlight, but on days when we’re feeling more of a minimalist makeup vibe, our go-to icy formulas can feel a little too extra. Instead of reaching for our traditional sheen, we love applying a balmy moisturizer on the high points of our face for a subtle, dewy glow. Ahead, we rounded up five of our favorite moisturizing face balms to help you try the hack at home.
This balm works wonders on dry, cracked skin and as a highlighter. It has a silky, lightweight formula that’s hydrating and won’t clog pores.
With aloe vera and squalane, this balm helps retain moisture and relieve itchiness while giving you an enviable glow.
This transparent multitasker can be used on the lips, cheekbones or wherever you want a glossy, glow boost. We love that the stick format makes it easy to apply and that the formula is infused with kombucha filtrate and marula oil to moisturize during wear.
The best way to apply this balm is with a couple taps of your finger. Blend it into skin and prepare to achieve the glass skin of your dreams. We also like to apply this formula on our eyes for a glossy look.
There are seemingly endless ways to use this vitamin E-infused balm, including as a highlight, on dry cuticles or to keep brows in place. For an all-over glow, we also like to mix a small amount with our foundation before application.
