The best highlighters for every budget

Nothing gets me all hot under the collar quite like a good highlighter. Who am I kidding? Even a mediocre highlighter gets me all flustered. Anything that turns me into a human glazed donut / star / shining beacon of light gets a big thumbs up from me - and I know most of you guys feel the same way. And since my current highlighter stash is at breaking point (by which I mean that my drawer of highlighters literally broke from being so full) I decided to bring out a bunch of my favourites, shoot em, and then share em with you guys. Yes I do have more in my stash, yes I have bought more in the past few weeks and of course I'll be filming a full video about them all over on my Youtube channel. You're very welcome. But, for the time being I'm going to leave you all with these babies - a mix of drugstore dewiness and luxury luminizers. Trust me, you'll be glowing so hard martians will fly down to ask what you're wearing. Send em my way.

TOPSHOP GLOW POT

When it comes to highlighters I'm very much a powder glow kind of gal, but if you're on the look out for a cream that looks great without breaking the bank then head on over to Topshop, cause this baby packs a punch. Buy it here (£10).
 

PUR MINERALS AFTERGLOW

I never hear anyone talk about this highlighter, but in all honesty it's one of my favourites. It's the perfect golden champagne hue and gives an almost wet look to the skin when applied with a fan brush. Buy it here (£22.50).
 

THE BALM MARY LOU MANIZER

A recent addition to my stash, but definitely a solid favourite already. If you're looking for a natural highlight..keep on looking. This bad boy is will have you glowing so hard your friends will need sunglasses. Buy it here (£17.50).
 

BECCA OPAL

 Probably my favourite highlighter right now. I've heard so much about the Becca Skin Perfectors but chose to shy away from the hype because - let's face it - how good can one highlighter be? Answer: Very, very good. Buy it here (£32).

WET N WILD BOOZY BRUNCH

This Wet n Wild highlighter comes in at just four dollars, but it's honestly one of the best powders I've come across. It gives an amazing golden glow without being shimmery. Definitely one if you're a lil tan obsessed. Buy it here (£4).
 

LAURA GELLER GILDED HONEY 

Another hype induced purchase, and another highlighter I wish I bought sooner. Applying Gilded Honey is like applying liquid gold to your face. This one's small, but oh is it mighty. Buy it here (£21).
 

COLOURPOP LUNCH MONEY

Lunch Money is very similar to Mary Lou Manizer in terms of colour and pigmentation, but it has more of a mousse-like texture that sinks into the skin giving a natural 'skin-like' finish. Buy it here (£6.50).
 

ABH BUBBLY HIGHLIGHTER

If I could (afford to) I would literally bathe myself in this on the daily. You can only find it in the ABH 'That Glow' Glow Kit, but to me it's worth the price tag. The other highlighters in that kit aren't too shabby either. Buy it here (£40).
