No makeup look is complete without that blinding glow! Highlighters not on give your makeup a glowy effect; but they also draw attention away from your undesirable features. Highlighters come in a variety of types so it is best to use a highlighter that is meant for your skin type or skin conditions.

Powder highlighters are suitable for all skin types, provided each skin type has been prepped accordingly. Make sure you use a moisturizer before applying foundation, or a powder highlighter tends to cling to the dry areas or patches.
