My favourite highlighers

A great highlighter can finish off that ‘glow from within look’ perfectly. While highlighters have been popular for sometime now it can sometimes be difficult to find affordable highlighters that are really great. I have done the hard research for you guys and have pulled together my favourite highlighters on the market which includes a number that are under $20.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured, Opal $60 AUD



  • very bold and sheen finish
  • not glittery at all, so smooth and creamy to apply
  • slight warm toned colour however will suit most skin tones
  • beautiful luxurious packaging
  • while there are a number of good ones on this list, this is my favourite of all

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid, Opal $32 AUD



  • unlike its poured/powdered format, the liquid version is quite a subtle highlight
  • warm toned colour
  • looks great either as a highlight or mixed with your foundation to provide a luminous glow

Colourpop Supershock Cheek $8.o0 USD



  • gel like consistency unlike any other product I have used before however it is very comfortable and wearable
  • product has to be applied by your fingers to get the best finish which can be annoying at times
  • very warm toned, I tend to wear this product as an all in one product (blush, bronzer and highlight) perfect for natural ‘no makeup’ days
  • packaging is super cute!

Maybelline Master Highlight in Nude $19.95 AUD



  • slightly glittery in the pan however does not transfer onto the skin
  • nice natural day time highlight, not super buildable for a more bold look
  • neutral toned and will compliment all skin tones

Physcians Formula Shimmer Strip in Vegas Strip $9.99



  • customisable colours as there are more gold tones to the top of the pan and more bronze towards the bottom
  • can look slightly glittery  in the pan however if applied correctly this does not transfer
  • is very buildable for a more bold look
  • great affordable price considering the versatility of the product

E.L.F. Baked Highligher in Moonlight Pearls $8.00 AUD



  • my favourite of all the affordable highlighters options above
  • quite cool toned colour with a very white base which is perfect for those with lighter skin
  • extremely affordable
  • can be built up for a more bold look that will last all day long
