With ultra-glowy makeup looks on the rise (see: glass skin and #dewydumplings), the days of glittery highlighters are dwindling. Instead, we’re opting for glossy, reflective, wet-looking highlighters over glittery alternatives, perfect for creating that mirror like finish. This glazed donut look, characterized by the wet finish, is definitely the highlighter look to watch in 2019, and is easy to achieve with the right cocktail of products. The key to a wet-looking highlight is, well, moisture, so cream products (or powder products applied with a damp brush), are perfect for getting that wet effect.


With that in mind, we’ve rounded up our favorite wet-looking highlighters ahead — from the colorless highlighter that works on every skin tone to the frosty white option that looks like actual frosting.
