FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: 9 Beautiful Highlighters for Morena Skin

Last day of the week and just two weeks closer to TBJ 9th Mega Anniversary! I'm so excited and I just can't hide it! LOL! :D

Today's quite a busy day for me, but of course, I can't leave you today without your daily dose of Fan Mail Fridays. Question is from Mina:

Hi Ms. Martha,

I follow you on Instagram because I realized we have the same skin tone so most of your favorites, I check out or buy.
I'm into highlighters lately and I'm wondering if you can give me a list of highlighters that are perfect for our skin tone? I'm planning to buy a new highlighter when I hit the mall and a list from you will help. Thanks a lot!

Hi Mina!

Cheers, fellow morena!

Morenas like us will benefit from highlighters with champagne, gold, and rose gold hues. Here are some of my favorites that I use on rotation, from affordable to expensive ones!

- Sin City may look too white, but it comes off as a glowing gold highlighter that gives you a golden ray of highlight on the cheeks.

- Jordana's new highlighter sticks are versatile enough to be used on the cheeks, brows, and nose bridge. Radiant Glow is a warm champagne hue that looks natural on warm skin! Also, the texture of the products sets into a semi- powdery finish that can be used to touch- up your highlight.

- Face Gloss is the newest product of Colourette. Dream Quartz is a rose gold highlighter that gives off a jewel- like shine and perfectly complements warm skin.

- Terracotta Light is a light gold highlighter that gives off a true gold finish, but doesn't look off!

- An affordable favorite of mine. Pure Nude highlighter is a pale gold highlighter with a natural finish. Can be used on a daily basis!

- Watts Up is a classic cream highlighter favorite of mine. This warm gold-champagne cream highlighter leaves a soft focus finish and is a good base for powder highlighters because it doesn't affect powder shades at all.

- One of my favorite highlighter palettes. The warm champagne shade in the middle looks so photogenic and the high shimmer topper ups the ante by giving skin a glistening strobe. Mind you, the shimmer looks natural!

- A palette containing four highlighters with a bronze shade and light gold shade that are perfect for warm to deep skin.

- An affordable highlighter palette that can be a good dupe for the shades of Anastasia Glow Kit! The soft, pigmented powder highlighters can be customized to give you natural to blinding glow.

Hope you find this list helpful! Don't forget to share with me your favorite highlighters!

11 Lovely Thoughts

  1. Waaahhh... this is my thing too now.. whenever I go out, highlighter and lip tint nalang.. no more blush hihi.. I am just happy that I have thick eyebrows so I am just brushing it and no more pencil or product. My highlighter is not on the list but I would love love to try Colourette Dream Quartz and Skinpotions Glow Bomb palette.

  2. Kakabigay lang sakin ng pinsan ko po yung Essence highlighter and maganda siya! Hindi palang ako ganun ka-expert maglagay pero kahit papano tama naman siguro yung nilalagyan ko haha. Gusto ko pong itry yung Jordana para maiba naman at stick type. πŸ’

  3. I have a quite fair skintone but this is very helpful for me coz my daughter is morena. So it will be a guide on what type of highlighter that would be best for her. I do have a gold one that I think would look good on her. But I would love for us to try the Colourette Face Gloss.

  4. I also suggest the ones from Maybelline. The master chrome metallic highlighter. ❤️ My morena friend uses that and I love how it flatters her skin tone! ❤️

  5. Detail nake highlighter and are good too. Have you tried ever bilenas's highlighter?

  6. The sleek solstice is also good πŸ˜‰ for now i love the morpheXbretman babe in paradise palette. My all time fave will be the wet n wild megaglo highlighter and becca highlighter 🀩

  7. Yey !!
    Meron ako nung pink sugar in sin city ...
    Kala ko tlga white siya pero nung inaapply ko siya gold pala pero ang ganda ...
    Nag aaral pdin ako mg highlight ..
    Sana po mg karoon po ng blog kung paano ang tamang pg apply ng highlighter ..thankyou po

  8. I use Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfecting Perfector in Champagne Pop, it looks good on morena skin. Im an NC40 and its just the right amount of glow.

  9. I have palette na may kasama nang highlighter. Yung makeup revolution na contour palette. Maganda din yung highlighter nun. I think perfect din sya for morenas 😊

  10. I love Beccas highligthers! Especially the Chrissy Teagan pallete!

  11. Wala pa ako ni isang highlighter..😒 pti contour...
