The Best Vegan Highlighting Products

The Best Vegan Highlighting Products

One of my favorite beauty products is a good cream or powder highlight. When applied correctly, highlighter can make your best features stand out and give your skin a flawless “lit from within” glow. Even on days where I wear minimal makeup, I have to wear a highlighting product. For this post, I rounded up some of the best cruelty-free and vegan highlighting products out there.

  • E.L.F. Studio Radiance Enhancer – This liquid highlighter comes in two shades. Spotlight is a soft pink shimmer and Sunrise is a bronzy champagne color. This tube has a brush applicator. All E.L.F. products are cruelty-free and all cosmetics are vegan. Buy online now.
  • DeVita Absolutely Finished Powder – This face powder in Crushed Pearl is a great neutral highlighter for all skin tones. It controls oil and shine but still provides a great glow. All DeVita products are cruelty-free and vegan. Buy online now.

  • E.L.F. Studio Baked Highlighter – This powder highlight packs some serious shimmer and pigment. It comes in three shades, so there is one to suite everyones tastes. With this product, a little goes a very long way. It blends smoothly whether applied with a brush or fingers. Buy online now.

  1. The Too Faced Candlelight Glow Duo has been my favorite highlighter for years. (didn’t know it had carmine in it) That said, I really love the e.l.f. Gotta Glow studio blush (which is a NARS Albatross dupe). I think that one might be vegan?

  2. Bad news – the Too Faced Candlelight Glow Duo is not vegan as it contains carmine. I purchased it believing it was vegan then read the packaging and was very bummed as it’s a superb product. Fortunately, the Too Faced Candlelight Pressed Powder is carmine-free and works swell.
