I wanted to know if there are some good facial highlighters that can help contour the face that complement african american women.

Thanx!

this sounds weird, but try it. if i want to highlight on darker skin, i will use "light" blot powder by mac. its very sheer and on nw43-55 skin it looks really subtle. ill also use deep dark or dark blot on pale skin as a contour, because again, its so sheer, the color payoff is very natural and makes for a great matte sublte contour. on dec 26th mac will be releasing its new sculpt and shape powders. yum. also nov 15th essence of beauty will be released with some great highlighting powders and studio lights creams so add a sculpted glow to the face.

I agree, Some of the MAC msf's or the Jane knockoffs would probably look quite nice =)

i never thought about trying a blot powder, though! sounds very interesting! thanks for the tip, erin!

Depends... Some bronzers are matte. But, you can use them to contour.

think of bronzer as giving a sun kissed look and highlighter more of an illuminating glow. the hightlighter seems more like a shimmer to me. i hope that makes sense and i haven't confused you even more! lol~

(same color as jennifer hudson) i actually use a bronzer to set my liquid foundation and i think it shows up well. it just doesn't give that tanned look like you'd see on a person with a more fair skintone. if i wanted that look i'd go with a bit darker bronzer.
