After what feels like a decade of contouring fatigue, I’m positively elated that subtle highlighters are back in the mix. A little shimmer on your cheekbones, brow bones and cupid’s bow is pretty and brings light to the face in a way that looks just as good IRL as it does on Instagram. I’m also loving this jewelry equivalent of highlighter from Eliza Designs LA, the rose quartz heart pendant, the crystal associated with the heart and love of all kinds. Who can’t use a little of that? Luminize your heart and your face with my top favorite luminizers in all the land.
Glossier Haloscope ($22) Speaking of quartz, it’s integrated into this stick highlighter’s perfectly pretty, moisture-infused formula, making skin look dewy and flawless for hours.
Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow ($55) Mix it with your foundation for a soap-opera worthy Quartermaine-style candlelit glow.
Mark That’s Brilliant Face & Eye Luminizer ($14) This wallet-friendly iteration is great for stashing in your purse for brush-on touch-ups on the go.
Wander Beauty Catch The Light Highlighter ($25) Slim and super travel-friendly, this skinny stick imparts luminosity and comes in four sheer, shimmery hues for every skin tone.
