Our Top 10 Highlighters

2 December, 2019

Get ready to glow with these tried-and-tested picks!

We are huge Christmas fans here at Sassy HQ and will be the first to admit that we get totally swept up in the occasion. Not only do we get to overindulge on sweet treats and listen to festive songs on repeat, but it’s also a great time of year to dig out your sparkliest clothing and up the ante when it comes to your makeup. Of course you can choose to go all out and add a glitter eyeliner or a bold red lip, but often the easiest way to add some shimmer is with a good highlighter. We’re not ashamed to say that most members of the team have more than one in their makeup bags! After all, different occasions call for different products (that’s our excuse anyway!), so here are our top 10 highlighters.
