The difference between highlighters and sparkly skin products is one that is far under-recognized but can make or break your achievement of a successful natural glow through highlighting.

If you want your highlighter to look natural, you should avoid sparkles. They are good for eyeshadows, lip products and body powders.

Highlighters are meant to bring out the natural glow of your skin. A highlighter that is too sparkly will not look natural because your skin doesn’t naturally sparkle. To spot a highlighter which is too sparkly, look for glitter particles. Even if the glitter particles are very fine, if you see any glitter particles in the highlighter they will stick out on your cheekbones like an unnaturally sparkling thumb.
