I am obsessed with highlighters. A good highlighter will make the skin look healthy and fresh. It’s supposed to brighten the face. It shouldn’t look fake or extra shimmery. The particles are meant to reflect light to make you glow, not make you look glittery. As you can see all highlighters are not the same. There are different textures from powder to creams, different finishes from sheen to glittery, and different shades from the lightest pink to the darkest bronze. I like powder and more gel or liquid consistencies. Here are my favorite highlighters that I use often.
Nars Albatross– A white gold Highlight; perfect for all skin tones
Mac Semi-Precious Pearl MSF– If Mac ever re-promotes this, I would get it! It’s gorgeous pearl but its not too pale or cool because of the warm tones in the center. Nice on fair to medium skin, it might look a bit ashy on darker skin tones if too much of the pearl is used.
Smashbox Halo Highlighting Wand in Gold– Review here
Mac Brunette MSF-Another Limited edition by Mac, it’s a golden pink shade; Great for all skin tones. If it’s re-promoted get on it!
