Top Bronzers and Highlighters for Dark Skin

Women of Color have traditionally found it difficult to purchase makeup that works to enhance our already beautiful features. However, as an avid makeup lover who has spent far too much time swatching and swiping, I feel confident in declaring that we really can wear anything, anything. And yes, that includes bronzers and highlighters.  Yes we are already brown, but darn it, we want to be bronzed and highlighted, too!

The following are my top bronzers and highlighters for dark skin:

Wearing Becca Cosmetics Bronzer in Opal


Well Hello! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a lipstick-loving, high heel junkie, mom, and wife. When I’m not here bringing you the latest in beauty, fashion, hot topics, and bits and pieces of my life with my family, you can find me over on youtube swatching lipsticks and sharing my latest natural hairstyles. Make sure you also follow me on Instagram and Snapchat under my brand name Lisa A La Mode. I’m a real person. I promise.

  1. I started wearing bronzer after interacting a few times with Sam Fine on Twitter. I purchased Iman’s sheer finishing powder in Afterglow. I used it all up finally and now I’m the owner of Covergirl Queen bronzer in ebony. I really like the way my face photographs when I use them.
