The Best Highlighters For Deeper Skin Tones

Samantha Deitch/

With highlighters being all the rage lately, it's no doubt that we're all dying to get our hands on our own illuminating formula. As all of us deeper-skinned girls know, finding the perfect highlighter formula isn't always the easiest shopping experience. Many of the more popular shades out there (icy ivory hues, for example) tend to leave us looking washed out rather than luminous, and, let's face it, that's totally not what we're going for here. Luckily, there are plenty of color palettes dedicated to warmer skin tones (think gilded honeys and rich golds). Radiate the room with a hint of these across your cheeks, down the bridge of your nose and on your Cupid's bow. Take a look at a few of our favorite highlighters for darker complexions below.
