What are your favourite affordable highlighters that are more glowy than glittery? 💫
Highlighting is all about bringing the highest points of your face forward and making them look more pronounced, not looking like you applied glitter all over your face before heading to Coachella. Finding that perfect highlight that gives you a gorgeous glow on a budget can be tricky, but I’ve tried my fair share!
ELF Baked Highlighter
ELF Baked Highlighters are undoubtedly my all-time favourite highlighter drugstore or not! Although some people have complained about it in recent years (I suspect they changed the formula) I find that this highlighter gives me a gorgeous intense highlight that no other can, it really is perfect for that “blinding” highlight and has a pearleascent metallic finish as opposed to a glittery one.
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom All in 1 Face Palette
This palette contains multiple shades of highlighting goodness, making it super easy to customize it to suit your skintone. You can either use certain shades individually, combine rows together or just mix the whole thing! For the most part this highlighter just gives a gorgeous highlight but you may find the odd fleck of glitter every now and then!
ColourPop Super Shock Highlighter
A brand made famous thanks to Instagram, when it comes to ColourPop the price is unbeatable. An online only brand, their highlighters have an amazing mousse like texture that set to a powder once applied. The formula has great pigment and is filled with beautiful fine shimmer, not glitter!
