If you find that your skin tends to look a little dull this time of year (a common side effect of dry and frigid winter weather), you might be on the hunt for makeup formulas that deliver a healthy, dewy glow without a ton of effort.
Well, few makeup products do this job better and quicker than cream-based highlighters.
These products are typically designed to be placed on the high points of the face where the sun would naturally hit (like on the cheekbones and down the bridge of the nose) and add instant radiance to the skin.
While powder highlighters will surely deliver that lit-from-within vibe you crave too, cream-based formulas really excel at also leaving behind a balmy, well-hydrated appearance. In fact, cream-based highlighters are usually a better option for those with dry skin, as they're frequently infused with hydrating ingredients and won't be as likely to cake up on dry patches.
They layer well on top of complexion products, like foundation, tinted moisturizer, and concealer, but they can also be worn on their own on clean, moisturized skin for a more natural look.
