No makeup look is complete without that blinding glow! Highlighters not on give your makeup a glowy effect; but they also draw attention away from your undesirable features. Highlighters come in a variety of types so it is best to use a highlighter that is meant for your skin type or skin conditions.
Best for: All skin types, especially oily skin
Powder highlighters are suitable for all skin types, provided each skin type has been prepped accordingly. Make sure you use a moisturizer before applying foundation, or a powder highlighter tends to cling to the dry areas or patches.
