Her pick: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light
Why it's her fave: No one does powder highlighter quite like Hourglass Cosmetics. Their powders are easy to apply and also deliver high intensity shine. Use them sparingly for a subtle glow or layer it on for a blinding cheek highlight.

Her pick: Milk Highlighter Mini in Lit
Why it's her fave: I picked this highlighter because it is super buildable and can also double as a super pretty eyeshadow. It is so blendable and hydrating and I love the glow it gives!

Her pick: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Champagne Pop
Why it's her fave: I go back and forth between powder and cream highlighter, but this is one that, in my opinion, works best with all skin tones on all textures, for both day and night. It is such a beautiful shimmer, not sparkly, makes you looks fresh, and it’s so controllable that you can choose whether you want just a touch of dew or to be a full on glazed doughnut.

Her pick: Benefit Cheekleaders Mini Pink Squad Palette, Highlighter in Tickle
Why it's her fave: I adore the Benefit brand’s many classic shades of pink. This highlighter blends with the rest of my makeup with no problem and adds just the right amount of sheen to my very pale cheeks. Being a palette, it also comes with blush and brightener in a small, easy to carry container–score!

Her pick: theBalm Mary-Loumanizer
Why it's her fave: This is a beautiful champagne color that works on so many skin tones since it isn’t too golden nor too pearly. It’s a powder, but it glides on super smooth and doesn’t contain any chunky glitter—perfect for achieving that glossy, “wet” look as seen on supermodel selfies on Instagram. It's also buildable so you can go from a subtle glow to a striking shine in a few quick swipes.
