10 Rainbow Highlighters You Have To Try

by Miki Hayes

If you're all about that glow, whether you like it subtle, or like to send signals to space, you may feel like you already have all of the traditional golds and champagnes. Which is why you'll totally fall in love with a rainbow highlighter. Now I know that could sound a little intimidating— you may feel like the silvers, greens, and blues should be saved for your eyes. But these unique shimmers will blow your mind.

Besides adding that little something extra to your makeup look, most of these highlighters inspired by mermaids and unicorns have multiple colors in their pans. So not only will they give you a variety of looks with just one product, but they're also perfect if you want to try out the thermal highlighter trend. Because why limit your frosty, other-worldly radiance to just your cheekbones when you can truly shine like a disco ball? And if you've seen the oh-so-popular Prism rainbow highlighter, you may have an idea of the kind of magic in store for your face. Here are 10 rainbow highlighters that will have you rocking a seriously colorful glow. You know, for that next-level highlight.
