For fair skin tones
Go for pearlescent pink- or silver-based highlighters – the light pigments give pale skin just enough radiance without leaving a frosty finish. Pair with a rosy, pink blusher for the cheeks that look naturally flushed and don’t look too garish. Pro tip: stay away from highlighters that lean towards the bronzey side because they might just do the opposite of highlighting while appearing as an odd, dark patch on the face. 1. Diorskin Rouge Blush in #219 Rose Montaigne, $73
2. Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush in Flesh & Fantasy, $68
3. Benefit GALifornia Powder Blush, $53
4. Too Faced Papa Don't Peach Blush, $45, Sephora
5. Farsali Jelly Beam Illuminator in Glow Up, $65, Sephora
6. Stila Heaven's Dew All Over Glimmer Highlighter, $35
7. Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Metal Moon, $54, Sephora
For medium skin tones
When it comes to medium skin tones, dusting on champagne-toned highlighters will highlight the golden tones in your complexion beautifully. Throw on a coral blush to further accentuate that sun-kissed glow that’ll make you look more awake and fresh. 1. Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder in Bronze, $78
2. Shiseido Minimalist WhippedPowder Blush in #03 Momoko, $48
3. Too Faced Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush in Ginger Peach, $42, Sephora

Gold- or bronze-toned highlighters illuminate darker complexions by adding warmth and radiance. Wear with a blusher with a berry or orange undertone for a lit-from-within glow. 1. Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush in Euphoric Fusion, $67
