I would say to look at drugstore to find will work for your skin. It is important to highlight because it add a natural finish look, but you look your have been to the beach. So, here is a list talked about the best drugstore/affordable. If you like to learn more, keep resting a bit.

Maybelline Master Hi-Light

Maybelline Hi-Light 

These Master Hi-Light are bronzers and blushes. I consider them more to be highlighters, but that is all dependent on your skin tone. I know for my women of colour, this would be perfect for highlighters for our skin. For my vanilla sisters and caramel sister, you can use some of these as highlights, blushes or bronzers. There are six shades in the Master Hi-Light collection :
  • Nude  - Shades of soft champagnes and pink
  • Coral - shades of peaches, orange toned corals, and champagne

This is the newest addition to the Wet n Wild line and there has been a lot of hype around this product. This highlight powder comes is the perfect drugstore highlighter that has hit the market. It comes in two shades, but you have to make sure you find it because it always out of stock.  For my Canadian readers, it has not hit the Canadian beauty market yet, but you can get it online.  Precious Petals is best suited for my vanilla and caramel sisters and crown of my canopy is best suited for my chocolate sisters, Here are the two shades:

Milani Tantastic All Over Baked Bronzer

Milani Tantastic Face and Body Bronzer

This face and body  baked marble bronzer is infused with macadamia and jojoba oils to help keep the skin hydrated and soft, while  giving you a healthy bronzed glow. I can say, that these bronzers look more like highlighters and a lot of YouTubers say the same thing! There are three shades:

Kiko Eyeshadow #208

Kiko Water Eyeshadow in 208

This Kiko eyeshadow  double as  perfect highlight for most skin tone and that is including my chocolate sistas. 208 is a champagne glow, thought in look golden in the golden, it does not reflect that swatches AND it is a dupe for MAC Whisper of Guilt and Estee Lauder Heatwave.
