What is your most-used highlighter?

This is like a favorite child! There are so many I rotate between… Fenty Beauty Afternoon Snack/Mo’ Hunny duo looks like it has the most use, and I use that as a highlighter/bronzing/blush combo. As far as a true highlighter (more skin-on-skin in hue), Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter.

Lisa Eldridge Elevated Glow Highlighter in Cosmic Rose (liquid formula). I use it under foundation, on the high points of my face. After watching Stephanie Marie on YT, I have started using it under the eyes when I use concealer (I alternate a couple of dots of liquid highlighter with concealer, then spread the mixture). It adds a beautiful luminosity and it helps if you have dry under eye area like I do. For reference, I do not have dark circles, however I have some blue in the inner corner of the eyes.

Oh wow totally agree with you here Nancy, both Amrezy and Double Gleam just look so natural and make a perfect “I woke up like this” look, and also work on bare skin so well!
But of all liquid highlighters, I love Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Filter the most since it is one of the few that does not contain any bad alcohol and mix well with foundations.

I don’t reach for highlighters; I think I only own 4 and that’s after decluttering. But this question inspired me to swatch the 4 I could find and make a commitment to try using them more next year! I liked Becca’s pressed Moonstone enough to buy it twice, but I’ve barely used it. I don’t think I understand enough about how to use them, and that’s why I continually pass them by.

I love PMG Lunar Nude as well – it’s a lil on the cooler side, but still just right in terms of glow. I also like Hollywood Flawless filter, but honestly, I love the Haus labs – moon, sun, peach, and rose quartz – Amazing formulas. I do kinda like playing with some of the newer colorful highlighters as well – blendbunny palette for instance when I’m going out. I guess I’m kinda highlighter crazy!

New favorites are; Rare Beauty liquid luminizer in Enchant (pink/lavender shade) & Haus Labs Gel powder Highlighter in Rose Quartz. My staple highlighters are Natasha Denona super glow high lighter in 01 fair & Glossier Dew Effect Highlighter in Quartz

I am currently in love with the Victoria Beckham Reflect highlighter stick. I love it so much. It gives the perfect glimmer on the cheeks and a bit to the Cupid’s bow area and since it its the size of a lipstick, fits perfectly in my bag
