15 Highlighter Sticks for Glowy Skin Anytime, Anywhere

It may be fall, but the shift in season is no reason to abandon your pursuit of Dewy-with-a-Capital-D. In fact, there’s even more reason to amp up your highlighter game: cooler weather combined with going back to school, the office, or post-summer-vacation normalcy are bound to leave your skin looking lackluster. (Dryness, less sleep, and any added stress tends to have that effect, unfortunately.) Do consider swapping out your day cream for a radiance-enhancing moisturizer, and consider adding a hydrating primer to your makeup routine. The real game-changer, though, comes in stick form. Enter: The twist-up cream highlighter stick, your go everywhere BFF.

We love a classic powder highlighter. We live for the statement, blinding beam of a liquid illuminator. But for moments in between or on the go—when you crave something easy, effortless, and simple to throw on (and in your bag) for day-to-night touch-ups—we need the highlighter stick. Brushes and Beautyblenders are lovely, but not necessary for seamless application; more often than not, these fuss-free formulas let you swipe on, tap to blend, and go, go, glow

From barely perceptible to day-glow bright, these are the best highlighter sticks on the market, right now.
