Expert Picks: 5 Highlighters Suitable For All Skin Types

We have five of the best universal highlighters, suitable for all skin tones to make your makeup a lot easier and on point.

All-over dewy, radiant skin is an official year-round staple in the makeup category, and the highlighter has become classic and essential.

If you had to buy a highlighter according to your complexion and skin tone, we would suggest icy highlighters with a pearl or silver sheen for people with pale skin and cool undertones. People with medium complexion or olive undertones should go for bronze-y or iridescent highlighters. Darker skin tones can try going for gold or rose-tinted highlighters. 

If finding the right highlighter seems like too much of a task, we have the best universal highlighters that work for any and every skin tone and complexion.
