This product has been a wonderful highlight for me and I believe it is good for any skin tone. It leaves a golden look to the skin providing it with a healthy glow. A little goes a long way with this product so be careful not to overdo it.

These illuminators come in three colors:

Rosy - Pink for women with fairer skin.
Goldie - A whimsical shade meant for women with more of an olive complexion
Toasty - With a hint of bronze, Toasty is perfect for women with deeper skin tones

For an ethereal glow, apply the product to cheekbones, brow bones, the center of the forehead, and the nose and chin.

This is a magical powder with magical powers. It blurs and defuses many of the issues you might be having on your skin. The three colors offer you different options for multiple areas of your face. It is an effortless and well-blended powder that works great with all skin tones. I recommend this pallet to all my clients.

I love this highlighter mostly because people can't tell you are wearing a highlighter. Instead your face just has a natural, beautiful glow. If you are new to highlighting I recommend this product as a great subtle one to start with.

This tiny little compact is a bronzer, highlighter, and blush all in one. It has light-reflecting properties that bind together giving skin a healthy glow. Use each color for its individual purpose or combine them to make yourself a customized blush.

This subtle golden luminizer is infused with multicolored luster pigments to capture and reflect light. I mix this in with my liquid foundation for an all over natural glow.
