Get Glowing With 8 Highlighters We Love

The solution to chronic fatigue requires a holistic deep dive into your mental, physical, and emotional well-being. Faking a quick cure is simple.

Grab your favorite highlighter and brighten the inner corners of your eyes, brow bones, and water lines to awaken your peepers. Swipe down the bridge of your nose, the cupid’s bow over your lips, across your cheekbones, and on your chin for an overall healthy glow. Don’t have a favorite highlighter yet? We’ve got eight.

Vapour Highlighter

Vapour Organic Beauty Halo Illuminator

Aptly named “Moonlight,” it offers a clean natural glow, like being bathed in celestial light. Although it comes in a stick big enough to highlight the cheekbones, forehead, bridge of nose, chin, and collar bones, we find it easy to dip in a finger and perk up the corners of the eyes and brow bones, too. It’s nontoxic, recyclable, and smells sweet and earthy from a proprietary frankincense, tulsi, and lotus combo.

Josie Maran Argan Moonstone Glow Stick

Josie Maran Argan Moonstone Glow Stick

Amid the unicorn craze and shelves of glitter makeup, this multipurpose holographic highlighter is — pardon us, but — a unicorn. Like other Josie Maran products, the chunky stick is silky, creamy, and smells like earthy bliss. Unlike its sparkly competitors, it offers a sheer wash of pearly shimmer that looks natural (think: post-hot yoga afterglow).

Thrive Brilliant Eye Brightener

Thrive Causemetics Brilliant Eye Pencil

We’re having a little love affair with this versatile stick. Its pearlescent sheen is perfect for under and over the brow bone for a quick arch lift, all over the lid for golden glow, or, of course, the hot spots (brow bone, eye corners, water line). The pencil contains mango, macadamia, and sunflower seed oils, but even better than the resulting bright-eyed and bushy-tailed look? For each Thrive product purchased, one is donated to help a woman who needs a little boost.

Anastasia Highlighter

Anastasia Beverly Hills Highlighting Duo Pencil

The double-ended stick has a matte shade to give brows a lift, brighten corners of the eyes, perfect brows, and perk up the water line, and a shimmery side to pull the night shift. Both are silky and blendable, so if you feel like swiping a bit down your nose and cheekbones, simply tap it out.

Benefit Eye Bright Highlighter

Benefit Eye Bright

Touted as a full night of sleep in a stick, the pink pencil has a blendable cream formula. The magic is in the application. Doodle a V in the corner of your eye, underline the brow bone, and add some outer-eye cat whiskers. Tap out with warm fingers and — bam! — you appear to have scored a little extra shut-eye.

Jane Iredale Highlighter

Jane Iredale Highlighter Pencil

This multitasker has a soft pink end for highlighting the brow bone and a shimmery white for inner corners of the eyes. Both colors look natural but make the eyes pop. (We recommend going in with white at the water line, too.) The cruelty-free, mineral-based line is also good for skin, so you can give your eyes a little pep without the parabens.

Tarte Fake Awake Eye Highlighter

Tarte Fake Awake Eye Highlight

Fake it till you make it when you twist up and glide on the creamy gel formula. Use the matte nude inside the lower water line to wake eyes up and make them pop. The built-in smudger makes it easy to illuminate the inner corners and under the brow bone for a natural, nonshimmery highlight.

NARS x Erdem Highlighter

NARS x Erdem Wild Phlox Highlighting Pencil

Move quickly to add the limited-edition multiuse tool to your collection. The creamy formula adds a refreshing iridescent white-lavender sheen to the corners of eyes and across cheekbones.
