Light It Up! We Found The Best Highlighters For Your Favorite Features

The holiday season is all about glowing, shining and dazzling. So what better time than now to let yourself sparkle as well?

Luckily this year’s must-try highlighter trend was practically made for the season. From subtly dewy to full-on balmy, ‘tis the season to shine.


So before you find yourself under the mistletoe and dancing your way to midnight, we recommend (literally) highlighting up your favorite feature to complete your holiday look.

Check out our must-have products to enhance your eyes, lips and cheekbones (or all three!).



Want to serve up some serious lip service at your holiday party? Skip the traditional red lip for an ultra-glossy lip. Glossier’s _Lip Gloss ($14) is the glossiest gloss there ever was. We love that it provides a super glassy shine minus that stick, goopy feeling. Plus, the smooth finish will last through several glasses of egg nog, so there’s something to smile about.




There’s one surefire way to make sure your skin for NYE is literally lit: use the perfect cream highlighter. We’re obsessed with Milk Makeup’s Highlighter in Lit ($24). It makes you feel naturally radiant and nothing like a human disco ball. Sweep it across your cheekbones, bridge of your nose and browbone to make your assets shine and your heart glow.




Eyes are the window to your soul. So let your crush know you are as radiant on the inside as you are on the outside. Draw him in by highlighting your eyes. Sephora’s Radiant Luminizing Drops ($14) is a liquid formula that allows you to control the shine. Go subtle by layering it under your favorite shadow, or wear it by itself for a bolder, glowing look that will have all eyes on you this holiday season.
