Highlighters For Dark Skin Tones

January 9, 2015


Skin tone and undertone play major roles in one determining what shade would work best for their complexion. A miseducated choice could lead to money well wasted when a gorgeous color in the pan utterly misfires when it finally does sit on the skin. Especially when it comes to highlighters because they have a tendency to turn that lit-from-within glow to looking like chalk or chunky powder within an instant, especially on dark skin tones. Shades that teeter more towards to being too cool should be avoided and opting for warmer colors should be on the agenda. Most dark skin tones have gold, peachy or slight yellow undertones, so the whole goal is to bring out said tones by picking a highlighter that would compliment and enhance darker features. Shades like gold reflect a beautiful sunkissed glow, as as peach infused hues for a gorgeous luminiscent effect.
