Highlighters can do one of two things: 1) Impart an ethereal glow or 2) Give you a ghostly veil. If you have a rich cocoa colored complexion like me, then you may find that most luminizers deliver the latter. Shade range matters, and while brown skin women have more choice options for foundation than ever before, highlighters are still limited. If you find that your “highlighter” dims your light, consider the pretty pigments ahead, that make my skin shine bright.
