Milani Stellar Lights Highlighter Palette
This 3-in-1 highlighting palette is made with micro-milled pigments, which means they're easier to blend and won't cake up as the day goes on. It also means that the shimmer provides more of a glisten, and less of a glitter disco-ball vibe.
Physicians Formula Butter Highlighter in Pearl
Not only does this creamy powder provide a soft glow to the skin, but it actually provides nourishing, moisturizing skincare benefits, thanks to blend of murumuru butter, capacu butter and tucuma butter in the formula. Bonus: It smells like vacation.
Soap & Glory Love At First Blush Highlight & Sculpt Cheek Stick
No brush? No problem. Swipe or dab this rosy highlighter on the apples of your cheeks for a subtle, illuminated flush.
L'Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Shaping Highlighter Makeup Sticks
This creamy, slightly shimmery formula gives skin a dose of dew. Layer over a radiant-finish foundation to up your glow factor.
Catrice 3D Glow Highlighter
Available in three different shades, this heavily pigmented highlighting formula is free of white pigments, so it won't leave behind a white or gray cast on the skin, making it ideal for darker skin tones.

Mix this liquid highlighting formula in with your foundation, or wear it alone on your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, and on your cupid's bow.
Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Glow Highlighter
