The Best Highlighters for Dark Skin Tones

Updated 10/05/17

Not all highlighters are created equal. As with most cosmetics, your skin tone plays an important role determining the shade that’s best for you. The wrong luminizer can leave your skin looking gray or chalky, rather than radiant and lit-from-within. For dark skin tones that means anything too pink or overly frosted is out of the picture, and warm hues are in.

Whether you prefer cream, liquid, or powder, you’ll find a luminizer you’ll love below!
