Struggling to fit all your makeup products into one pouch, or simply trying to get the extra three minutes of sleep in the morning?
Enter the “blighlighters”, a term coined by celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg. This is what she calls products that have a 2-in-1 hybrid combination of matte blush and sparkly highlighter so create a youthful flush that also glows on your cheeks. In other words, instead of having to use a blush and a highlighter to create this coveted look, you can achieve it with the help of just one product, saving you time in your makeup routine!
Now, this is something we can certainly get on board with. Here’s a list of 15 blighlighters you should snag if you’re ready to save some time – and potentially, money!
