I love highlighters but my oily skin does not! Strong shimmery highlighters were a big NO for me because they would emphasize my dilated pores! I remember that day when I tried the ‘champagne Pop Jaclyn Hill ‘highlighter at Sephora, I felt my pores dancing and I took it off immediately! I am always on a hunt for subtle highlighters because they suit me the best. Here is my top 5 at the moment:
1.Wet n Wild Bronzer In ‘Reserve Your Cabanna’
This is the most subtle highlight ever and it is subtle to your pocket too! It is a light beige that has a very fine and creamy texture. It is extremely affordable and it gives the skin a very natural and beautiful sheen.The swatch doesn’t do it justice but on the face it looks so natural!
Availability : amazon , Walmart.com , wetnwildbeauty.com
2.Essence Pure Nude Highlighter in 10
This is a baked formula that is so smooth and blends easily into the skin.
It has peachy undertones and it gives a beautiful sheen to the face.
The swatch doesn’t do it justice but on the face it looks so pretty and natural!
3.MAC Strobe Cream
This product is stunning! It is a very lightweight cream that has pink undertones. Sometimes I mix it with my foundation for an overall glow and sometimes I like to apply it only on the high points of my cheekbones and on the bridge of the nose
Availability : maccosmetics.com, HudsonBay
4.Becca Shimmering Skin perfector in The Liquid Version
The liquid versions of Becca highlighters look more natural than the powders. They have 4 shades depending on your skin tone. Don’t be intimidated by the small shimmer particles because they barely show on the skin! (I swatched the shade Moonstone)
5.Tarte Cheek Stains
Those are technically blushes, but they are sheer & glowy. If you have a round or rectangular face like me, you can apply your blush a little bit higher than the apples of your cheeks and that’s where I use these! I apply the product with my fingers or a stippling brush and it gives a beautiful natural sheen to the skin that is very subtle.Unfortunately,the shade that i swatched was discontinued but i posted the photo to show you how sheer they look like on the skin.

So these were my top 5 natural highlighters ! What are your favorites?
