Thanks to the likes of Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and a string of glowing Victoria’s Secret angels, the highlighting trend has become a firm favourite in just about every woman’s makeup routine. To make the lives of beauty addicts everywhere easier, we turned to Pinterest (as well as our own members), to see which highlighting products people can’t get enough of. Add these to cart immediately.
