From toddlers teaching us how to apply Fenty Beauty makeup to grown-ups who have managed to put on makeup underwater, the power of the beauty blogger never ceases to amaze. Instagram user @babyaddi6 recently shared her favorite highlighters that cost only a dollar, yes, just one dollar, and they really work. All available from the online dollar beauty store Miss A, her picks have you covered. From loose eye shadow pigments that double as highlighter to vegan and cruelty-free brands, these five highlighters even allow you to try trends such as Rihanna’s beloved purple cheek. There’s no one-dollar poop highlighter option, but we think you’ll survive.
Glitz and Glam’s Loose Eyeshadow Pigments indeed cost a mere $1. They work fabulously as an eye shadow but double as a highlighter, proving the multipurpose nature of makeup. Go with a classic sheer shimmer, or try out some rainbow highlighting or purple tones with this dollar brand.
Another $1 loose eye shadow that doubles as a highlighter, L.A. Colors Shimmering Loose Eye Shadow comes in a variety of shades and looks so good applied that people are mistaking it for Fenty Beauty’s Trophy Wife.
Amuse Highlighter is perfect for money-saving compact lovers. It has a creamy consistency and comes in light, medium, and dark for a range of skin tones.
If you’re into the creamy, shimmery, $1 glow of the Amuse Highlighter, but prefer rolling on your luminizer rather than using a compact, check out their highlighter sticks. It’s also available in a bronzer. These are sold out at the moment (the word must have gotten out) but check back to snag one.
The E.L.F.Shimmering Facial Whip mentioned in the thread isn’t actually a dollar (it’s $3), but the brand’s All Over Color Stick is, and it’s also super pretty. It comes in three shades: Spotlight (seen here), Persimmon (a rose-gold), and Pink Lemonade (pink shimmer).
