Best for fair skin: Edward Bess Marbleized Rose Gold Highlighter Powder
If you worry that shimmer will wash out your ivory skin, let us introduce you to the ultimate glow pro. When swirled together, the three shades of triple-milled powder impart a delicate tint with a touch of sheen.

Equal parts berry blush and pearlescent highlighter, this hybrid hand-mixed powder warms olive skin and leaves a pretty pop of color.

Best for dark skin: Glossier Cloud Paint in Haze
Subtle hues or sheer textures can disappear on dark skin—which is why this pigment-packed gel-cream is a good bet. Apply a dot (a little goes a long way) of the buildable magenta formula for a truly royal flush.
