The 8 Best Face Gloss Highlighters For a Dewy Complexion

For achieving lit-from-within skin.

As the weather warms up and humidity and heat lead to oilier skin, highlighters with metallic finishes can end up looking less dewy and more like a tube of glitter exploded on your face. In the lead-up to summer, makeup brands seem to have shifted to subtler, jelly-like formulations often branded as “face gloss.” Gucci Beauty, for example, introduced the Éclat de Beauté All Over Face and Lip Gloss back in February and Kevyn Aucoin followed suit with the Glass Glow Face Liquid Highlighter in March.

Clean beauty brands such as Tata Harper and RMS Beauty offer their own versions of clear face gloss in balm form while makeup artist Gucci Westman‘s Lit Up Highlighter arrives as an easy-to-use stick. Even beautyblender, known for its sponge makeup applicators, has jumped on the face gloss train in the form of Glass Glow Shinelighter.

To create an effortlessly lit-from-within face, try applying face gloss to your cheekbones, brow bone and cupid’s bow by tapping it onto the skin with your fingertip. Though the bridge of the nose is a popular spot to hit with traditional shimmer highlighters, avoid applying face gloss there — it can end up looking like oil.
