Best Highlighters for Pale Skin

Lucky for me (not actually), I’ve been blessed with pale skin. Some people even say I am as white as snow. And when it comes to makeup for pale skin, it can be hard to find the perfect products.


My favourite makeup product is highlighter. I love having a glow no matter where I’m going or what I’m doing and I’m willing to pay the price for a great pigmented highlighter. This makeup product can really step up your makeup game!


It has taken me a while, but I have found the perfect highlighters for my skin tone and shade. Below are my top 4 highlighters for pale skin:


  1. TOO FACED Love Light Prismatic Highlighter

This highlighter is definitely in my top 3. The shade Blinded By The Light is the best shade for pale skin. This champagne colour gives a beautiful pearl radiance to the skin that makes it look like you’re glowing from within.


2. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish

This highlighter in the shade Lightscapade is a beautiful beige with a “multidimensional” shimmer. This highlighter is amazing because you can apply a little for a super subtle glow, or build it up to be as intense as you want! It is a perfect natural golden glow for pale skin.


3. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter

Don’t let the picture fool you - this product does NOT look like this in real life! This product in the shade Stunner is another one of my all time favourite highlighters. It is similar to the TOO FACED highlighter in that it makes you look as though you’re glowing from within. The radiance that this product produces brightens the face and creates a beautiful glow for a soft strobing effect.


4. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighters

My top 3 shades for this highlight are Pearl (soft luminescent white), Moonstone (pale gold), and Opal (golden opal pearl). This formula is the most glittery of the bunch, but it also creates a beautiful ultra-reflective shine. I love adding one of these highlighters on top of my Tarte one for an extra pop!
