How to Find the Best Highlighter for Your Skin Tone

When it comes to achieving luminous, glowing skin, few products can compete with highlighters. For an effortless, lit-from-within glow, highlighter tops the list as one of the most essential additions to your makeup bag especially on those days when you’re feeling dull or have missed a few hours of sleep. In one quick dab, highlighter can add extra radiance to areas of the face including the brow bone, bridge of the nose, cupid’s bow and even the décolletage. That said, there are a lot of highlighter options on the market. 

Highlighter comes in countless formulas and textures like creams, powders, balms and liquids, but it’s also available in various shades such as gold, rose gold, champagne, pearl and bronze (not to mention the different levels of shimmer, sparkle and sheen). With so many options, it can be challenging to narrow down the best highlighter for your coloring. To help with this, we tapped Melissa Collazo, a makeup artist, and OMNIA brush artist, to share some tips and tricks of the trade on deciphering the best options for your skin tone and complexion.

“When going for a more natural glow, choosing a formula with a thinner, creamier texture and more subtle shimmer is advised.”

"If you have dry or acne-prone skin, or larger pores, you will be better served by a highlighter that is a cream or liquid formula."
