What would be a highlighter for dark brown skin?
Nars Albatross looks awesome. But would it work for someone who's dark brown? If not, what would be better?

Welcome to the board
I definitely have to check out Albatross! I keep hearing such dope things about it. Anyone have any pics they can share?
I highlight w Style blush from MAC. It's a peach blush with golden tones. The peach doesn't show on me, just a soft champagne-y highlight.

I highlight using my Sleek Contour kit in Dark. I like it but I've been looking for a liquid or cream highlighter.

If you haven't found a swatch for it, I just went to her blog and clicked home which brought me to her previous posts including her pic of Albatross. ELF has a blush called gotta glo similar to Albatross but of course not NARS quality I own it but don't use it that often as I prefer more yellow gold highlighters which is why I didn't invest in Albatross and I love my NARS blushes to pieces.

NARS Albatross is a great highlighter, but you want to be careful that it's not going to make you look ashy. I'd suggest looking at some luminizers like Benefit's Sun Beam or Stila's All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer in #3.

NYC has a bronzer and highlighter in one. It's their cheek to cheek Duo Blusher. Their bronzer is matte and the highlighter is matched to the shade of the bronzer so they really work great together

While Albatross is really pretty I prefer MAC's Trace Gold blush for an everyday highlight. It's really subtle and pretty with a light sheen. I'm an NW45 for reference
