Brighten up your features without the heavy shine using our guide to highlighting darker skin tones.

 

If you have a deeper complexion, what you want is something that illuminates, rather than leaves a chalky yellow-ish result so approach it as though you’re choosing a foundation. It should feel natural and part of your skin to avoid looking like a disco ball. Our tip? Bronzy gold compliments most shades but if your hue is deeeper, then choose a copper tone. You’ll still achieve the highlighted finish without the harsh contrast.

 

With numerous highlighters to choose from — including powders, creams, and liquids – it can sometimes feel like a mine field when hunting for the perfect product to suit you. We have made your job that little bit easier with our edit of tools that will give you a fresh glow and dazzling result.
