Much as the world fell in love with the Kardashian’s particular brand of contouring, we all fell equally in love with strobing, the trend that came after. (Who doesn’t love smearing glitter on the strategic high points of their face?) But soon even traditional highlighting seemed boring, and brands began to search for new, unusual ways to experiment with highlighters.
Become the celestial being you know you are with this enchanting highlighter kit from everyone’s favourite brow-guru, Anastasia Beverly Hills. This charming little palette contains six different colours, ranging from the more tradition Pink Heart (a white-blush opal effect) to the more fantastical Purple Horseshow lavender. This (and the adorable names) makes it the perfect product for those looking to dip their toes in the water.
Indie cosmetics company Bitter Lace Beauty caused a storm on social media with their gorgeous rainbow highlighter Prism – the instant overnight success that launched a thousand DIY copies. They’re in the process of doing a full restock of all their highlighters, including fairytale-perfect shades Once Upon A Time and Pixie Dust. Keep an eye on @bitter.lace.beauty for the latest news on their progress (and to lust after swatches!)
When it comes to unusual products, indie brands often have the edge over luxury or drugstore cosmetics; they’re more willing to take risks with products, tapping into the cultural zeitgeist to bring beauty lovers exactly what they want, when they want it. Another indie company that does exquisite and extreme highlighters is Looxi Beauty – we love their range of affordable, varied, and cruelty free highlighters.
