Best Summer Highlighters

A huge goal of mine at the start of each season is to find the perfect highlighter according to that season, before it’s over. So, I finally found the perfect highlighters for this summer season! The perfect summer shades to look for in a summer highlighter are gold and iridescent shades. These compliment your summer makeup looks and outfits!

The first highlighter I chose was Urban Decay’s Naked Illuminated highlighter in LIT. This is a perfect mixture of bronze and gold! The bronze will compliment sun-kissed or darker skin tones, while the gold shimmer leaves you looking like a goddess. Such a perfect shade for the summertime.

The second highlighter I chose was BECCA Cosmetics Champagne Pop! This beautiful soft gold highlighter will have your cheekbones glistening gold in the sunlight. This highlighter is a great formula and will pair well with almost all summer makeup looks!

If you read my previous article, Underrated Makeup, then this Elf baked highlighter and bronzer duo may look familiar. This highlighter is the third one I chose! Like I said previously, the bronzer in this Elf duo compact is very shimmery and can be used as a highlighter. I think this subtle bronze color would look amazing with a natural summer makeup look.

The fourth one I picked was the highlighter from Tarte’s Make Believe in Yourself palette. Even though I gave this palette kind of a bad rep in my Anti-Favorites post for my experience with their eyeshadow, that had enormous amounts of fallout, the highlighter in the center is good! A beautiful iridescent highlighter that will give you that majestic mermaid glow we all live for.

The fifth highlighter I chose was Anastasia Beverly Hills Sun Dipped Glow Kit. I only chose 2 shades from this palette which are Summer and Moonstone. Summer is the one swatched closest to my hand, and is a beautiful white gold that looks very elegant, especially in the warm summer sun. Moonstone is a gold highlighter with a pink undertone, which looks amazing with warm tone makeup.

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit is the sixth highlighter I chose! I only chose 3 shades from this palette which are Eclipse, Helia and Lyra. Eclipse is the one swatched closest to my hand and is a beautiful pale gold shade. Helia, the middle shade, is a beautiful peridot shade (perfect for August babies). This shade is so pigmented it will illuminate your soul. And Lyra is a peachy highlighter that will brighten any look, and give you that warm glow that’s perfect for the summertime.

And last but definitely not least is the seventh highlighter I chose. This highlighter is called Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind. Such a beautiful rose gold highlighter that I’m totally here for! Rose gold is a great color for the summer and I wore this a lot during this summer season.

I hope you enjoyed reading and comment down below your favorite summer highlighter.
