Hi antie96,

 

Sounds like you and I are around the same complexion. I'm a big fan of highlighters, but like you I'm not too fond of too much shimmer or glitter.

 

NARS Albatross is one of my daily go-tos for a night illuminating glow. It looks fabulous when layered with your favorite blush. It has a fair golden tint to it.

Too Faced's Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo is another phenomenal powder. Like Albatross it possesses a gold undertone, BUT the pink side adds a bit more depth for a warmer look to the face.

If you have skin that is a bit on the dry side (I'm combination), I'd say aim for a cream or gel based highlighter like Benefit's Sun Beam.

Hi Antie96,

 

Try using a gold illuminator for your skin tone or a warm bronze shade. I suggest the Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer. It has a very micro-fine shine that does not emphasize pores.

Another option would be the Benefit Girl Meets Pearl. It is slightly more golden with pink.
