The Best Highlighter on the Internet Is Also a Favorite at Byrdie HQ

There's no denying that when our skin looks its best, we feel our best. Of course, that definition is different for everyone, but for those of us who love a dewy glow (and lack the genes), highlighter is our favorite go-to. The beauty trend has led almost every major brand (from drugstore to designer) to release a series of new highlighting wands, powders, or creams each year. But with so many to choose from, the struggle to find the right texture and tint is all too real. While each promises the shimmery luster of a long-term skincare routine, there is a diverse range of qualities with each kind. Some are more velvety or create a soft radiance, while others offer a matte finish. Bottom line? With so much variety, we wanted to know which brands triumph over the rest.

The team contrived a comprehensive list highlighting (pun intended) the best of the best. Whether you prefer the natural look of a dewy gloss or a more striking shimmer, the internet agrees these are the top five unbeatable highlighters on the market right now.
