Ladies, I've been having a difficult time finding a highlighter that photographs beautifully. I' bought one at MAC, it looks great in person, but in photos it just looks like i put the wrong colour foundation on and photographs terribly. any suggestions?

IT Cosmetics has some wonderful highlighters. I have the powder and the crème versions. They also have a stick version available.

Touche eclat would be my choice, also. I have to always have a backup or two. Also, I have It Cosmetics highlighters too, they are nice but don't know if they photograph well...

Wanted to add..my daughter uses Josie Maran Highlighter, the one that comes in a small pump bottle. The bottle may be small but you only need a tiny amount and it's really pretty on her skin. Probably the best highlighter for her and she's tried most of them. It gives a different highlighted look on her face...I don't know how to explain it but it is quite beautiful. Sephora did carry it, if they still do, go in and try it.

I use Benefit's Sun Beam and MAC's gold deposit. I really like an intense gold shimmer highlighter. Also benefit's watts up creme highlighter is great too.

I would go with Julie Hewett Shimmy (creme) or Physician's Formula Happy Booster Glow powder in translucent. It gives a very light shimmer that doesn't look like a glitter bomb.

Hourglass ambient lighting powder in luminous light is a beautiful highlight. Can also be used over a liquid highlight.
