We’re firm believers that liquid highlighter should not be reserved for Summer only, but we can’t deny that when this time of year rolls around, it’s time to switch out our powder products to liquid. And as we all want to look our gleamiest and glowwiest this time of year (while trying not to appear sweaty, it’s a hard balance, we know…), what better way to prepare than to add a liquid highlighter or two to your collection?
Read on for our six favourite liquid highlighters – perfect for whatever kind of makeup look you’re into.
MADE BY MITCHELL BLURSH LIGHTS LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER
If you’re a full glam gal, then we know you’ll want your cheekbones (and Cupid’s bow, nose, life, soul…) gleaming to the high heavens. This is your official warning to stop your search and say hello to the Blursh Lights Liquid Highlighter from Made By Mitchell. Known for their intense, super-pigmented formulas, this highlighter is no exception to the rule. Simply apply a tiny dab wherever you want to glow, blend, and you’re good to go.
SUPERFLUID ALL(B)RIGHT HIGHLIGHTER
‘No makeup-makeup’ just got a whole lot easier thanks to Superfluid’s All(B)Right Highlighter. Radiant and refreshing, this liquid highlighter is a big yes from us, for that natural glowy finish.
MAKEUP REVOLUTION MOLTEN BODY GLOW
Don’t let the glow stop just at your cheekbones – body glow can be an amazing way to take your outfit to the next level. If you’re wearing a shoulder-skimming top or spaghetti straps, applying a little bit of body shine to your collarbones can really make you stand out. The same goes for your legs – once you’ve moisturised, buff on on some Makeup Revolution Molten Body Glow in your chosen shade with a large kabuki brush. It helps to even out the tone of your legs, as well as making them look healthy, shiny, and the perfect accessory to your night-out ‘fit.
MELT COSMETICS SEXFOIL DIGITAL LIQUID HIGHLIGHT
Liquid highlighters don’t get any better than this… The Melt Cosmetics SexFoil Digital Liquid Highlight is a makeup bag must-have for more than just one reason. It’s illuminating, long-lasting and hydration, AND can be used on the face and body. Need we say any more?
MAC COSMETICS STROBE CREAM
When you’re looking for that all over, Summery glow and your matte base just isn’t cutting it, it’s a great idea to customise your foundation. Introducing the Mac Cosmetics Strobe Cream, on its own, you can use as a gorgeously shimmery liquid highlight. But when mixed with your foundation of choice, you can switch up the finish of your base, to ensure full coverage, with a natural glow. Multi-purpose? We love to see it.
SODA #LIQUIDLOVE LA-LA-LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER
A blinding glow and the Soda #liquidlove La-La-Liquid Highlighter go hand in hand. With an easy-to-control dropper applicator, for minimum waste and maximum radiance, these ultra-blendable, shimmery liquid highlighter drops need to be on your radar.
