As with most beauty products, choosing the right product all depends on your skintone. Going too dark or too light could seriously wreak havoc on your look. If you want to start experimenting with highlighter, but aren't sure which will best complement your complexion, check out the slideshow to find the highlighter that will work best for you.

Ambient® Strobe Lighting Powder

Fair Skin

Ambient® Strobe Lighting Powder ($38)

 

If you have fair skin, you'll want a highlighter that will give you a glow without looking too harsh on your skin. Pro tip: try a highlighter that has more of a champagne base.

'Afterglow' 8-Hour Powder Highlighter

Fair Skin

Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter ($23.40)

 

This cult highligher from Urban Decay is crazy popular and another great option for women with fair skin.

Tarteist™ PRO Glow Liquid Highlighter

Olive/Medium Skin

Tarteist™ PRO Glow Liquid Highlighter ($29)

 

If you have olive to medium skin, choose a highlighter that has more of a gold base. This one from tarte is super pretty on the skin.

'Light Source' Illuminating Highlighter

Olive/Medium Skin

Light Source Illuminating Highlighter ($23)

 

Another great option if you have medium or olive tone skin? Lorac's Illuminating Highlighter, which truly makes you look lit from within.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Fluid Sheer

Dark Skin

Giorgio Armani Beauty Fluid Sheer ($62)

 

If your skin is darker, you want your highlighter to have more rose gold accents to it. This liquid highlighter from Giorgio Armani is to die for and can even be mixed into your foundation to give you an all over glow.

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed Highlighter

Dark Skin

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed Highlighter ($38)

 

This is arguably the best powder highlighter option for women with darker skin.
