How To Choose The Perfect Highlighter
Highlighter is an essential component of any makeup kit. It adds a luminous glow to the skin, accentuates facial features, and can be used to create a variety of looks. However, with so many different highlighter shades and finishes available, it can be challenging to choose the right one for your skin tone. In this blog post, we will explore how to choose the perfect highlighter for your skin tone.
Step 1: Determine your skin undertone
Before choosing a highlighter, you need to determine your skin undertone. Skin undertone is the subtle hue that lies beneath the surface of your skin. There are three main undertones - warm, cool, and neutral. Warm undertones have yellow, peach, or golden hues, while cool undertones have pink, red, or blue hues. Neutral undertones have a mix of both warm and cool undertones.
One way to determine your skin undertone is to look at the veins on your wrist. If your veins appear blue or purple, you likely have a cool undertone. If they appear greenish, you have a warm undertone. If you can't tell whether your veins are blue or green, you likely have a neutral undertone.
Step 2: Choose the right shade of highlighter
Once you have determined your skin undertone, you can choose the right shade of highlighter. If you have a warm undertone, you should look for highlighters with golden or peachy tones. These shades will complement your warm undertones and give your skin a sun-kissed glow. If you have a cool undertone, you should look for highlighters with pink or silvery tones. These shades will complement your cool undertones and give your skin a radiant glow. If you have a neutral undertone, you can choose from a wide range of highlighter shades, including champagne, rose gold, and bronze.
Step 3: Consider your skin tone
In addition to your undertone, you should also consider your skin tone when choosing a highlighter. If you have fair skin, you should opt for a highlighter with a light, delicate finish, such as a pearlescent or iridescent shade. If you have medium skin, you can choose a slightly more intense highlighter, such as a soft gold or peachy shade. If you have dark skin, you should look for a highlighter with a richer, more intense finish, such as a deep bronze or copper shade.
Step 4: Choose the right formula
Finally, you should consider the formula of the highlighter. Highlighters come in a variety of formulas, including powders, liquids, and creams. Our butter-soft Limited Edition powder highlighters glide on easily with a massive payoff.

By following these steps, you can find a highlighter that complements your undertone, skin tone, and personal style. Remember to experiment with different shades and formulas until you find the perfect highlighter for your skin.
