Wow-factor, glittery highlighters were a major Y2K trend, alongside the iconic blue eye shadows seen on all ‘it’ girls of the time. Nowadays, the best highlighters are much more subtle and buildable, as they are crafted to elevate natural beauty and bring shine to the high points of the face.
With so many products and formulas on the market, it can be a struggle to know how to get that glimmer. So, whether you’re looking for a healthy glow or cheeks so bright, you’ll need sunglasses – we have a highlighter for any preference. From powder highlighters to creams, we’ve got the perfect formula for you to get your glow on!

How to Apply Powder Highlighter
After setting your liquid makeup products with a face powder, apply your chosen highlighter powder onto the high points of your face as the last step of your routine.
The best highlighter brush to use is our MAKEUP REVOLUTION CREATE SOFT FOCUS BRUSH R6. The soft, light bristles are smooth to touch and pick up the perfect amount of product. With a tapered end, this brush will glide effortlessly over the high points of your cheeks, giving you the glow you’re after.
Sweep your highlighter of choice across the tops of your cheekbones, browbone, cupid’s bow and the tip of your nose. Make sure you’re not too heavy-handed, as a little can go a long way.
If you decide you want up the glow, layer the product bit by bit to get the ideal luminosity.
