Can you imagine your makeup kit without a highlighter in it? Nope? Us neither. Just a single swipe of this product is enough to glam up any makeup look and take things from drab to fab in an instant.
But finding a highlighter that matches your skin tone can be a real task. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back. Here’s a simple guide to help you choose the highlighter for your skin tone…
Fair skin tone
If you have a fair skin tone, pearlescent, silvery and icy shades look beautiful on you. Lighter, cool-toned highlighters give your face a naturally radiant look. Whereas using a highlighter that’s too dark or has red undertones will leave a dark cast wherever you apply it.
Medium skin tone
For medium skin tones, it’s best to avoid a highlighter that can leave your skin looking frosty. Instead, pick a highlighter with warm, bronzier shades. Anything from champagne to a warm golden shade will look stunning on your skin tone.
Deep skin tone
For deeper skin tones, look for shades with warm or copper tones for that lit-from-within glow. Shades that are slightly red or orange can look extremely flattering on your skin tone. Avoid using icy, pearly shades as they can appear ashy on your skin.
