It wasn’t until 2016 that glowing cheekbones became a major trend in the beauty community. It was gurus like Jaclyn Hill that helped carry this trend with the release of her now sadly discontinued cult-favorite highlighter. This era put highlighters on the map, and we’ve never looked back! 

Now you can choose from a wide range of products and formulas to get that glimmer. We’ve put together a list of our favorite highlighters and share our top tips on how to apply them below.

Whether you’re looking for the best liquid highlighter or the best powder highlighter, we’ve got the best highlighters to get your glow on!

Find the Best Highlighters

Are you looking for that everyday, healthy glow or the full-on wow-factor? Whatever your preference, Revolution have the best highlighter for you with our range of powder, cream, body, and liquid highlighters. 

Best Powder Highlighter

The Makeup Revolution Reloaded Highlighters offer the ultimate glow up. These silky powders instantly brighten your skin and leave you with an ultra-flattering shimmer.  

To make your shine visible from space, apply with a damp brush for maximum impact. The champagne gold shade Just My Type is the perfect dupe for the famous highlighter that you can’t get your hands on anymore! 

How to Apply Highlighter Powder

Apply powder highlighter onto your face as one of the last steps of your makeup routine once you’ve set your liquid products with face powder.  

Using a Fluffy Highlighter Brush, sweep across the high points of your face, including the tops of your cheekbones, the browbone, your cupid’s bow, and the tip of your nose.  

Expert Tip: The great thing about powder highlighter is that it can also double up as an eyeshadow. Swipe over your lid or dab in the inner corner to make your eyes pop.  

Best Liquid Highlighter

The Pro CC Perfecting Glow Enhancer is our favorite liquid highlighter to give your skin an instant shine. With three gorgeous Amber, Gold and Rose shades to choose from, you can find the perfect tone to lift and illuminate your skin.  

This versatile liquid highlighter can be used on no makeup days for a subtle glow or as a base for your powder highlight.  

How to Apply Liquid Highlighter  

Liquid highlighters can be applied under foundation, on top of foundation, or as a complete standalone! A great perk of liquid highlighters is that they can also be mixed in with your foundation to create an effortlessly dewy finish.  

It’s best to apply liquid highlighters to the high points of your face with a damp makeup sponge for a natural glowing finish. If you want to intensify your glow, set with a highlighting powder.  

Best Cream Highlighter Stick

The Revolution Glow Mega Beam Stick meets all of your gleaming skin needs. This is the perfect on-the-go cream highlighter to add that extra pop throughout the day.  

This stunning highlighter stick is available in 3 dreamy shades – Rose Gold, Bronze and Gold. Say hello to vacation glowing skin, all year round! 

How to Apply Cream Highlighter Stick

Cream highlighter sticks are really easy to apply. Simply swipe directly over the desired areas of your face. Then, blend them out with the warmth of your fingertips or with a Stippling Brush. We recommend applying cream highlight on top of your liquid products before going in with powder.  

Best Body Highlighter

Remember beauties, highlighter isn’t just for the face! The Revolution Molten Body Glow is a gorgeous body highlighter that transforms you into a glowing goddess. It’s the perfect extra touch on a night out to really make you sparkle and shine.  

How to Apply Body Highlighter

Apply your body highlighter with the Revolution Body Brush to melt it effortlessly into your skin. Glide over your collarbones, shoulders, arms, and legs, so your skin can glimmer all night long.  

On a scale of 1-10, how far will you glow?
