Amazon Prime These Highlighters to Get Your Glow On, STATJune 02, 2020
I’ve gotten to know Amazon Prime really well the past few social distancing months. I spend my days browsing the beauty section and adding any sparkly, glittery or shiny highlighter to my cart. Fast forward two days post-purchase, and you can find me unboxing my Amazon Prime package and playing with my brand new, glow-giving makeup products. Trust me, swiping highlighter on your cheekbones or a luminizer across your nose is an instant mood booster. Given my obsession with all things glowy, I wanted to share my love of both highlighters (and online shopping) with you. Keep reading, because I’m rounding up my all-time favorite highlighters available on Amazon, ahead.
For a do-it-all product, add this NYX illuminator to your cart — you won’t regret it. Whether you want to mix a little glow into your foundation, emphasize your cheekbones or add a subtle sparkle to your inner eyes, this highlighter has you covered. I’m currently obsessing over the shade Sun Goddess, which has a bronze tint that’s perfect for summer.
If powder formulas are your jam, check out this Maybelline option. It’s pearl pigments leave a reflective, glowing and metallic finish on the high points of your face. The pigment diffuses the light and is the perfect finishing touch to any makeup look. It’s available in four shades: Topaz, Rose Gold, Peach and Gold.
On the search for an all-over glow? This lotion is for you. It’s a liquid, lightweight and hydrating formula that can be applied to your entire complexion for a radiant, dewy finish. I personally like to layer this under my foundation, but you can also dab the luminizer on the high points of your face for a shimmery finish.
To get an easy, quick and targeted highlighter application, a highlighter in a stick form is your best bet. This option from Maybelline is one of my go-tos for getting a strobed, iridescent finish. The creamy formula is packed with micro-fine pearls to give you a lit-from-within look and boost your skin’s glow. The creamy texture is also super blendable for a diffused finish.
Jelly formulas are not only so satisfying to touch, but they also are great for getting a natural looking glow. This pick from E.l.f applies wet, but dries down fairly quickly. I’ve been swiping a bit of this on my cheeks during no-makeup days to brighten up my complexion, but you can also mix it in or apply on top of your foundation.
If you want a long-lasting, never-cakey, cruelty-free powder highlighter, add this Bodyography option to your Amazon cart right now. It has a super smooth application and a radiant, illuminating finish. For a more subtle wash, apply the product dry. But if you’re looking for a more pigmented application, wet your brush before grabbing the product.
