The Best Highlighters For Pale Skin + Swatches

finding a highlighter when you have the undertones of Casper the ghost can be a total nightmare, say goodbye to those bronzy, gold highlighters because they will rarely work on pale skin, instead we hunt out the ideal icy glow which will show up on our pale faces and beam everyone away... just a shame when they are such a nightmare to find, when the majority of highlighters are aimed towards darker complexions.

So here is my top picks from my stash - for those of you who are wondering, I am an NC15 in MAC, or a 1N1 in Estee Lauder (and Gobi in Nars!)

This one is without a doubt the one I recommend the most, it is finely pigmented, not glittery just pure white sheeny glow. It is the perfect shade for us pale girls, even swatched it can be seen as white - which is odd considering the pan is peach/blue/white. I typically just swirl my brush around.
This is the one I use the most, and this would be the one I would NEED to replace if I lost it. So much love for it.

This is my everyday, no makeup makeup, still glowing skin highlighter. I used it in my "How to Fake Natural Beauty" post where you can see it in action, it just makes you glow without being glittery. This is also what I reach for when I want a really intense highlight - it can be used under a highlight to make you BEAM. Ok I am a tad highlight obsessed.

Sin is an intense highlighter if you have NC25+ but on my pale skin it is more of a subtle glow, really pretty for everyday, and worth it for those days where you don't want to be over the top.

4. Sleek Solstice Highlight Palette £9.99
The hype is real with this one, and the shades are beautiful. Surprisingly they are glowing enough to work with paler skin, especially when you mix the yellow shade in with the peach tone, this is so stunning on, and applies like a dream!

I love the look of this one, it is so stunning and so different. typically a peach isn't the best on me, it tends to blend in a little too much, ends up just looking a bit darker, but with the pink dual chrome effect it is stunning on pale skin, I highly recommend picking this one up if you can, something totally different for your collection :)

My Mary Lou is broken *cries* but this does not take away from her beauty. She was the first highlighter I fell for, with her warm undertone and stark highlight - this one was the one that started it for me - and something I think everyone needs in their collection.

This one is hard, because it is SO BOLD, so white, so intense, yet I don't like Jeffree anymore.... so I am on the fence, what I would say is that this one is not for the feint hearted, it is bolder then bold, and stunning on a night out.

  2. I think that Ice Cold is such a pretty highlighter but I don't think I want to support Jeffree :/ a shame too - cause it's beautiful and would actually show up on my skin!

  3. I don't really have pale skin, but these highlighters really are beautiful! Especially MAC Beaming Blush. I'm not too sure how well that would look on my complexion, but it sure is stunning!

  5. Oh, you've definitely convinced me to try the L'Oréal Icy Glow Highlighter, I keep swatching it every time I'm at a L'Oréal counter yet the light blue shade scares me a little so I never purchase it at the end, but it sounds really lovely and I believe I'm an NC15 at Mac as well!

  7. MAC Beamjng Blush is really beautiful shade. I have the one with purple reflection and I'm super satisfied.
    I wish the L'Oréal Icu Glow was sold in our drugstore. I gues this is another product I need to look at online. :D
