Pink blush is our go-to for adding a rosy pop of color to our cheeks, pink lipstick is a makeup bag staple and pink eyeshadow is the perfect shade to bring out for our Valentine’s Day glam. One of our favorite ways to incorporate pink into our routines, though, is with highlighter. It helps give skin a sunkissed glow, even in the winter, looks flattering on a range of skin tones and is the perfect color to tie any makeup look together. From liquid drops to powders, we’re sharing our favorite rosy-toned highlighters, ahead. 

NYX Professional Makeup California Beamin’ Glow Booster in Beach Babe 

If you want to try a pink highlighter that melts into your complexion and has a glowing finish, you can’t go wrong with these shimmery liquid drops from NYX. The smooth and silky formula is packed with luminous micro-pearls that catch and reflect the natural light for a beautiful and natural-looking sheen. 

Maybelline New York Face Studio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Rose Gold 

This drugstore highlighter has a captivating chrome-meets-pearlescent finish that will transform your look in a single swipe. Despite its subtle-looking hue, the metallic powder is highly pigmented, creamy to the touch and will instantly brighten your face. 

Lancôme Dual Finish Highlighter in Radiant Rose Gold

This dual-effect powder offers a lit-from-within complexion thanks to its formula that’s enhanced with light-reflecting pearls. Use it on its own or mix it with setting spray for a more intense, illuminating glow.

Urban Decay Moondust Face and Body Glitter in Horizon

Highlighter doesn’t have to stay strictly on your cheekbones. Use this Urban Decay liquid luminizer to achieve a full-body glow. Just rub the body glitter onto your body, your decolletage or the high points of your face. The formula dries down fairly quickly and leaves a luminous shine behind. 

Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Highlighter Want in Pillow Talk

If you love the brand’s iconic Pillow Talk lipstick shade, you’re going to want to scoop up this highlighter too — they’re the perfect pair. The silky liquid reflects beautifully when caught in the light. The formula is extremely buildable and blends smoothly to leave the cheeks looking healthy and youthful.
