How to Choose The Perfect Highlighter For Your Skin Tone


Few weeks ago I was talking about How to Find Your Foundation Color, and a lot of you messaged me saying that my post was very helpful to you. I was really happy and I wanted to write again something that some of you might find helpful again. That’s why today’s blog post is about How to Choose The Perfect Highlighter For Your Skin Tone.

If you want to see more, continue reading. 🙂

Fair Skin Tones

Those with pale to light skin tones should opt for highlighters with a pearlescent, icy-silver or champagne sheen. The light pigment adds just enough radiance to your complexion without making you look like an Eskimo. Anything darker and the product can come off as a little less “glow” and a little more “faux.”

Product Recommendations:

NYX Illuminator in Ritualistic             L’Oréal Paris True Match C 302 Ice

Medium-to-Olive Skin Tones

To keep your complexion from looking too frosty, warmer skin tones pair well with highlighters that have peach or gold undertones. The hint of color is just enough to give you that sun-kissed glow!

Product Recommendations:

NYX Illuminator in Magnetic                    Urban Decay Naked Flushed in Streak

Dark Skin Tones

Rich variations of rose gold or bronze work wonders on darker complexions. Just be sure to look for options that pack a ton of pigment and steer clear of frosty, opalescent shades, as they can cause the skin to look gray instead of lit-from-within! Keep your focus on warm hues.

Product Recommendations:

L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Golden                 Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer in #12

    Love this! According to this I’ve been getting more or less ones that fit my skin tone. I feel I like into two categories though, when I ran over the summer and when I get a little pale over the winter lol.
