How to choose a highlighter that compliments your skin tone

Let's start by stating that no matter your skin tone, makeup is all about having fun, and you can apply whatever shade you like to use, but it is true, that some highlighters are better at complimenting certain skin tones. 

Highlighters have come to stay, and we all love that dewy, glowy skin, but before you set out to buy any of the endless lists of shimmery products, you might consider what shades and undertones compliment better your skin tone.

Pale skin

If you are more on the fair side of the skin tone spectrum, the kind of highlighters that will do you justice are those with pearlescent, champagne, or icy silver sheen. Avoid choosing warm or dark red undertones and go for a pink and peach finish, which will add radiance to your complexion.

Medium and olive skin

 

Stay away from pinkish tones that might come across as too harsh on your skin. Gold, bronze, or iridescent undertones in your highlighter will accentuate your complexion and give you a sun-kissed-like sheen.

Deep skin tones

Rose gold, bronze, and gold are great for darker skin tones, they'll help you achieve that beautiful liquid gold skin. Frosty or opalescent shades can make your skin dull or every greish, so you better steer clear of highlighter with any pink, or frosty undertones.
