If you’re one to pack on highlighter, you should consider layering them too. Not only will you get more use of your products but you’ll get even more glow on your skin. A trick we like to use at the office is start with a cream or liquid highlighter and then swipe on a powder one. The liquid and cream formulas will keep your skin dewy and moisturized. The powder highlighters, on the other hand, will add a light-reflecting touch and shimmer. Try this makeup trick out yourself with the combinations below.
Glossier Haloscope in Moonstone + Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Metal Moon
For a natural-looking glow, go for highlighters that have a pearly white shade. This will give your skin a dewy, almost sweat-slicked look. Glossier’s Haloscope in Moonstone is described as an “opalescent glow.” It is infused with genuine crystal extracts and moisturizing properties. Fenty Beauty’s Highlighter in Metal Moon is cream-powder product that offers a subtle dayglow. Available on Calyxtaand Sephora PH.
Nyx Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter in Golden Hour + Kylie Cosmetics Kylighter in Banana Split
If you want to radiate a golden shine, reach for this highlighter combo. Nyx’s product in Golden Hour is a light-reflecting formula and has a lightweight consistency. It also has a shimmery finish. This Kylighter in Banana Split is the perfect layering shade. It is described as a “vibrant yellow gold” and is an illuminating powder. You’ll definitely stop traffic with these two.

The formula is also infused with luminous pearls and glimmer, for even more shine. Available in Nov. at Rustan’s, Shangri-La Plaza and online.
Flushed and Flirty
Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Blossom + J. Cat You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter in Bella Rose
Your highlighter shade doesn’t always have to be in the gold and white family, try adding some color. With these two products, you’ll get a look similar to Rihanna’s iconic Met Gala makeup. These concentrated drops will give a liquid metal finish to your skin in this rose gold shade. You can also mix this with your foundation for an overall glow on your face. To match this, try J.Cat’s highlighter in Bella Rose. It is a frosted pink shade that has shimmer pigment. It is also made for all skin tones and skin types. Available on Sephora PH and Uptown Mall.
A bronze-looking highlight shade is great for when you want to look like you’ve just gone to the beach. Nars’ Illuminator in Orgasm is a peach shade that is light-reflecting and adds shimmer to the face. Benefit’s Dandelion highlighter is a similar hue. It delivers a strobing formula that is sheer and light. It is also infused with their signature dandy daydream scent. Available at Rustan’s the Beauty Source.
