Our 4 Favorite Drugstore Highlighters to Enhance Glowing SkinSeptember 21, 2016
Few things excite us the way a dewy, lit-from-within complexion does. And we know we’re not alone in that sentiment. Highlighting—strobing, illuminating, glowing, whatever you call it—trends have not so discreetly taken the beauty world by storm…for obvious reasons. Dull, pale skin can instantly transform into a glimmering masterpiece with nothing more than an effortless sweep. If your skin is already glowing, a highlighter will only up the ante a bit—and really, when is that ever a bad thing? Best of all, you can master this radiant look on a dime. Below, we’re sharing our favorite drugstore highlighters—from liquids to powders to creams—to help you shine bright without breaking the bank! Four words: Bring on the shimmer.
