You’ll Want To Swap Out Your Highlighter For This

It goes without saying that our love of highlighters runs pretty deep. All it takes is a dab here and there for instant radiance. But if you’re a tad too heavy-handed with your application, there’s a fine line between a fresh-faced glow and shine central. That’s why we’ve fallen hard for face gloss. It’s the perfect no-fuss alternative to overly shimmery highlighters, and offers a fresh spin on strobing and highlighting. With face gloss, what you see is literally what you get—a colorless, non-sticky sheen that imparts a healthy, brightening effect to your complexion. A major multi-tasker, face gloss can be applied to eyes, cheeks and lips in order to nail that makeup-free, au naturel vibe. Ahead, we’ve rounded up our favorite nourishing face glosses (plus one truly luminous lip gloss that works just as well if you’re in a pinch) to help you get that glowy, spring-ready look sans stickiness or shimmer.
