Fenty: Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo

Available at Sephora

Price Point: $42

Rhianna disrupted the make-up industry when she debuted her cosmetic brand, Fenty Beauty, in 2017. Her Pro Filtr Matte foundation had everyone talking about the ultra-inclusive 40 shade range and set a new standard of inclusivity. But that’s not the only must have product from the line. RiRi’s Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo comes with two shades in one palette, so you can achieve soft sheen or a shimmery glow. And whichever shade you choose will be sure to make you “Shine bright like a diamond”.


Becca: Shimmering Skin Perfecting Highlighter

Available at Sephora

Price Point $46

If you haven’t tried Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfecting Highlighter you have not been living your best life. This product is a cult fave and for a good reason. The powdered formula is so smooth and buttery the product melts into your skin, giving you a healthy-looking shine. Need more convincing? The internet’s favourite celeb, Chrissy Teigen, has a collab line with the brand. And if it’s good enough for Chrissy, it’s definitely good enough for me.


Charlotte Tilbury: Bar of Gold

Available at charlottetilbury.com

Price Point: $75

Before launching her eponymous brand, Charlotte worked as a make-up artist on some of the most famous faces in the industry (Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Natalie Portman to name a few). Her many years on the other side of the makeup brush gained her serious cred in the business so you know her products are legit. Bar of Gold is a highlighter palette with three luscious gold inspired shades. Use to achieve a glow that is simply luxurious. After all gold is the most expensive metal, and you deserve the best of the best. (Psst... This product is also vegan and cruelty free!)


Marc Jacobs: Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter

Available at Sephora

Price Point $55

Marc Jacob’s Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter is perfect for getting that all over glow. A little goes a long way with this product. The lightweight liquid formula is easy to mix in with your primer or foundation but can also be applied directly to the skin. Use it on your face, shoulders, arms, legs, wherever you want to shine. Seriously, I would bathe in this stuff if I could – its’ that good.
