5 Highlighters to Keep You Glowing This Winter

By Hannah Liddle -
Best Highlighters

It felt like the highlighter came out of nowhere. It was an instant transition to fame, going from zero to the ultimate makeup hero. Everyone wants the perfect sheen, the shimmer strobing their cheekbones, carving their face and giving them that ethereal glow.

I’m a huge fan of highlighter and, at one point, I’d tried all of the cult favourites to find the perfect one. I didn’t find the perfect one…I found the perfect few. There are literally so many amazing highlighters out there, it’s impossible to choose one single favourite. And why only restrict yourself to one, right?

Quite often I get asked which highlighter I’m wearing, so, out of the kindness of my heart, and to help you all achieve that healthy luminosity, I’m willing to share my top five, so you can keep on glowing all through autumn and winter. Pull up a chair, you highlighter junkies, you’re in for a treat.
