Glowing skin has been in, and it still isn't going anywhere this year. If anything, the highlighter trend is only getting started, and the new, spring 2017 highlighters are here to prove it. Seriously. If for whatever reason your makeup collection has been lacking in the illuminating department, whether it be shade range or formula, these new launches will totally have you covered. Yep, within the next month we'll have a whole slew of new highlighting palettes, compacts, liquids, and sets.
And the best part is whether you prefer a liquid, cream, or classic powder formula, or have fair or deep skin, there are still a ton of shades to choose from. Because this year, illuminators are filling in the gaps. Instead of only traditional champagnes and golds or bold, rainbow hues, we're seeing more shades that meet these two extremes halfway. Think soft lavenders, subtle holos, and peachy-pink duochromes — perfect for when you want something a little more unique yet still wearable. The only problem will be narrowing down your top choices. They're all that good. Regardless of your highlight style, though, here are 13 new launches to keep your glow going through the spring and summer months:
