Gone are the days when we could only get highlighters in bright neon hues that made our eyes hurt. Now is the age of the pastel. Life is stressful and we need soothing colours to combat it. Enter the pastel highlighters.
Pastel stationery has been big for a while. The trend is still very much at large particularly for bullet journals and studygrammers. What makes pastels so great is that the subdued colours complement the dark black ink and don’t detract the attention while still providing a pop of colour. This lends itself perfectly to highlighters. In this post we give you a run down of the best pastel highlighters available read on to find a new favourite.
