However, vegans need to be careful as many highlighters contain animal ingredients. the most common ingredient that can be found is Guanine.

Rose Gold

Hourglass **

Finishing Powders for an Everyday Radiant Glow

** this brand is owned by a parent company who is not cruelty-free

This one from Hourglass is a bit of a wildcard, as these aren’t really highlighters, but instead finishing powders.

However, hear me out. Or hear Wayne Goss out, the beauty guru, in the video above. It’s an oldie (but very much a goldie) video. He explains how these powders should be used, and why they are a must have investment!

The trio palette includes:

  1. Dim Light: Natural peach beige
  2. Incandescent Light: Opalescent pearl
  3. Radiant Light: Sun-kissed golden beige
All these shades work to recreate the most flattering light on your face. It’s a dream product.

Ice Ice Baby

This 100% vegan cruelty-free brand has brought an icey cool highlighter shade with pink hues to it. This shade is almost like a cross between a blush and a highlighter, which some of you may love or hate.

It is a sheer consistency with a shimmer. However, it can seriously stand out and look popping on those with deeper skin tones.

Its a mineral highlighter and is infused with coconut water, which gives it that light, yummy coconut scent.
