best highlighters for women of color

Best In Beauty 2016 | Highlighters & The Tools I Use To Apply Them [Video + Swatches]

As a woman of color I know all too well the struggle of finding the perfect highlighter for deep skin tones.  I started going highlighter crazy back in 2015 but last year is when I really went HAM with adding to (and loving) my glow up collection.  When I realized how many highlighters I truly loved throughout the year I knew I had to dedicate a special post to show them the love they deserve.

Check out the latest video on the Kay’s Ways YouTube channel below where you’ll see swatches and even a look at my favorite tools and makeup brushes I use for application.  Want a peek at the winners  Keep scrolling for the full product list (*affiliate links are used, for more information check out my Disclosure Policy).
