Best highlighter for oily skin - ultimate guide


There are many kinds of cosmetics, among them, highlighter is a kind of cosmetics with a high frequency of use. A highlighter is a makeup item that reflects light. Highlighter makeup can make our flat facial features become three-dimensional, there is a very good brightening effect.  The effect of highlighter is to modify facial features, facial features look more have a stereo feeling. The highlighter makeup is generally used on your temples, cheekbones, brow bone, and even on your cupids bow and along the bridge of your nose, or on the highest points of the areas and face that you want to pop or stand out more. And generally used with shadow, make whole makeup look more advanced three-dimensional contour feeling, also can make some comparison of sharp edges and become downier. 

The best highlighter for oily skin      

Powder highlighter is more suitable for oily skin because the oil control effect of powder highlighter is better. If do not apply highlighter properly, then will show pores on the face. So there are some places to pay attention to.  


1. Oily skin cleaning is very important. Use a cleansing product with good cleaning power to wash off all the dirt and grease on the skin and make the highlights more comfortable;

2. At the same time, it is also necessary to replenish enough moisture for the skin. It is recommended that you use a facial mask or toner before beauty makeup;

3. Highlights are mainly for the shape of your face. Through the refraction of light, your face can look more three-dimensional and layered; 

4. It is generally not necessary to apply highlights to the parts with serious oil in the T area. At the same time, it should be noted that there should be a transition between highlights and shadows; 

5. At the same time, it is also important to choose a highlighter product suitable for yourself. If your skin condition is not good and you love oil, it is recommended that you use velvet highlight product, which is a very safe highlight product with good cosmetic effect and no great impact on excessive use, especially suitable for beginners. 

If you have ever well-liked how the light hit someone’s face right, possibilities are that they were wearing a highlighter. From subtle radiance to serious shimmer, light-reflecting makeup items are all range right now thanks to their capability to brighten up boring complexions, provide a skin fit glow and improve natural specs.

Do I need a highlighter if I am already using blush?

A blush includes colour to your skin. Its objective is to make you look flushed. On the other hand, a highlighter helps emphasize a spec by making it pop. While blush and highlighter are 2 separate makeup items with different end goals. If you are looking to improve your glow without including an extra product to your outline, a shimmy blush that includes colour to your cheeks while also reflecting light is a remarkable choice.

Tips to prevent oily highlight

Do you notice that your highlighter looks pretty oily – somewhat greasy – after you use it to your face? That is fully normal, but it could be caused by a few various things. Trust it or not, the highlighter is probably not what is causing the issue you are having. Since a highlighter is one of the last items you apply to your face, it could be any of the steps leading up to your highlight that causes the highlight to emerge oily.

Here are some suggestions:

Begin with mattifying products

When you have oily skin, it is vital to use a primer before applying foundation. Preferably, you should use a mattifying primer followed by a mattifying base. If you have oily skin, try to stay away from glowy or illuminating foundations. You can still use glowy looks without including extra moisture to your skin via the foundation.

Stay away from liquid and cream illuminators and highlighters

If you love to use cream products on your face, using creams as highlighters just get messy. It is simple to use too many cream items and it is not simple to fix if you do because the cream items do not typically blend out as well. If you use powders for your face, always stick to a powder highlighter. If you initially use creams, a powder highlight will help set some of the cream items you already used.

Do not use cheap products

There is nothing bad with shopping for drugstore brands, but I have found that when it comes to highlighting, the big and average brands do a much excellent work. Typically, many of the drugstore highlighters will be less build-able and extra patchy. Plus, lots of them come with glitter in the item.  So, I always advise investing in a high-end highlighter. They last longer and will most likely provide you the punch of highlight you are looking for.

Avoid using too much product

If you are using an item that needs you to build up the highlight, you may be using too much item or trying to stretch that item too far. Some items are not just meant to provide you a much subtle highlight, so if you are going for the “stand out in the crowd” look, you may just use a bad product. Having many products on your skin will provide you an oily look mainly as the day goes on.

Ensure you are highlighting in the best places

One of the most general errors is over-highlighting. If you bring highlight too far down your cheekbones, there is the best possibility you will turn out looking oily. If you are dealing with this issue, try keeping your highlighter on your greater cheekbones and away from the apples of your cheeks. Also, keep it to the center of the bridge of your nose and do not apply to the tip of your nose.

Use a highlighter that matches your skin tone

With 100s of highlighters on the market, it is simple to want to buy every single one of them! If your skin looks oily, it could be for the reason that the shade you are using is too dark. When you pile on a product that is very dark, it will begin to look muddy. Then, when you attempt to blend that item into the skin, you will look even extra oily.

Finish with a setting spray

Many people with oily skin will fully skip the setting spray for risk that the spray will cause moisture that makes things look even more oily. With the best setting spray, it will actually perform the opposite to your skin. If you are appearing greasy at the end of your makeup application, try a mattifying setting spray and it should make stronger things.

What do I recommend?

Stay away from liquid highlighters and always buy powders. The powders help soak up some of the greasy from your skin, too, so it is a win-win! The Banffee makeup highlighters are my absolute favorite for when my skin is feeling very oily, but I am still looking for a shimmery glow. You can purchase Banffee cosmetics online from their website.

Can people of all skin tones use highlighters?

Any person can wear a highlighter – it is just a matter of finding the one that top matches your skin tone. For a natural-looking highlight, pick a hue that is just a couple of shades lighter than your complexion. If you have extremely fair skin, go for a pearl or opal shade. Pearl advises pairing it with some contour – whether it is bronzer or blush – in order to make depth. Peachy or golden highlighters tend to look remarkable on medium skin, while those with darker skin tones might want to give bronze, gold, or copper shades a whirl.
