Beauty Fix: Must-Try Highlighters Before Summer’s End

by Julia Talisman

Listen closely: Summer. Is. Not. Over. We’ve got four weeks until September 21, the last official day of the season. Yes, summer ends right in the middle of Fashion Month, so you can keep that sun-kissed glow going. Luckily there’s a highlighter for every part of your being (really!) to keep you glowing from the barbecues of Montauk to the runways of Milan!

HUDA BEAUTY SUMMER SOLSTICE 3D HIGHLIGHTER PALETTE, $45
Influencer turned entrepreneur Huda Kattan knows a thing or two about summer beauty, and her limited-edition Summer Solstice 3D Highlighter Palette is proof. With vibrant shades like Saint-Tropez, Malibu, Copacabana, and Mykonos, you’ll be shimmering like a summer sunset in no time. 

URBAN DECAY NAKED SKIN HIGHLIGHTING FLUID, $28
This creamy highlighter adds instant illumination anywhere you need it (a.k.a. everywhere). The sheer formula blends beautifully, making the product easy to use and extra forgiving. Each shade is prettier than the next. Skywalk, a pale blue, is great for brightening around the eyes, while Sin, a champagne shade, imparts a healthy-looking, lit-from-within sheen. Yes, please. 

FRANK BODY SHIMMER SCRUB, $20
If you’re not showering with a glitter scrub, you’re doing it wrong. This limited-edition scrub (which had a 50,000 person waitlist prior to launch) exfoliates, moisturizes, and leaves skin with a subtle shimmer. How? Glittery pieces of electronically charged mica wash over skin. You’ll look as if you dusted highlighter over your entire body, in a good way.

ESSIE TREAT LOVE & COLOR, $10
This is as good as it gets for your nails. Essie Treat Love & Color highlights and enhances your tips with visually brightening pigments and a lovely iridescent sheen. The strengthening formula is infused with active ingredients like collagen and camellia leaf extract to restore and pamper nails while imparting a healthy glow.

TARTE PEARLY GIRL VEGAN TEETH WHITENING PEN, $22
Who doesn’t want a whiter smile? Tarte’s Pearly Girl Vegan Teeth Whitening Pen brightens and removes surface stains while protecting tooth enamel. The bleach-free, vegan formula is incredibly effective and the portable packaging is ideal for on-the-go touch-ups.

MOROCCANOIL GLIMMER SHINE, $28
This finishing spray attracts and reflects light, creating an invisible veil of luminous shine. Bonus: It smells like a dream.

AMIKA SHOW OFF GOLD DUST, $24
Add a little drama (and a lot of golden sparkle) to your hair with this shimmer spray. The light-reflecting gold dust adds major glow to hair and can be used on its own or mixed with a styling product. You can even dust this shimmer on your body for a 24-karat head-to-toe look.

THE PERFECT V VERY V LUMINIZER, $43
Is there any area of the body that wouldn’t benefit from a little added radiance? Enter Very V Luminizer by Scandinavian brand The Perfect V. This highlighting cream was formulated specifically to add iridescent color to your nether regions while renewing and conditioning the area.
