My Current Top 3 Highlighters

Hi, my loves!

Ah, summer’s upon us (at least here in India!) and I’m ready to brush on twice the amount of highlighter than I usually do. The sun’s out, and I’m ready to glow.

So, I thought I’d share my top three highlighters right now. They’re currently residing in my everyday makeup basket, and I tend to pick them out depending on the look I’m going for, or whatever I’m feeling that day. Let’s get into it x

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop

Ah, this one’s surely a staple, at least in my collection. This highlighter never lets me down, and I tend to go for this one when I need a super glowy and blinding look. Be warned: this highlight is intense, so proceed with caution. This product is crazy-pigmented as well, so you need very little of it too. It has a beautiful peachy-golden colour and translates beautifully on my medium skin- so if you’re another brown girl like me, this one is worth the investment.

Anastasia Beverly Hills x Amrezy Highlighter

Ugh, I know I talked about doing a Project Pan and curbing my spending in my last post, but this one was way too good to miss. Sorry, not sorry! This beautiful light-gold highlight initially gives you a lit-from-within glow, but you can build it up to be blinding. I tend to go for this one on my chill-makeup days, when I’m not going all out and just need a bit of glow on my skin. If you have a fairer skin tone, I highly recommend this one for you.

Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter in Molten Gold

This drugstore highlighter is finally available in India, and I couldn’t be happier. After seeing Tati rave about it, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this product. Super inexpensive and gorgeous, this one’s surely a steal. It’s a beautiful true gold, and the payoff is really good. When you first put it on, it’s like a medium-ish intensity, but once it’s built up, it can look blinding as well. If you have a deeper skin tone, you should definitely look into grabbing this one up.
