How to Choose the Perfect Highlighter for Your Skin Tone
It’s becoming more and more clear that strobing is not just any makeup fad or seasonal trend — it’s here to stay! But, with the endless number of shimmery options out there, how do you know which one is right for you? It’s no longer one-size-fits-all in the highlighter department — there’s a match made for your specific skin tone! Check it out …
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.”
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.
