Best Highlighter Palette for Fair Skin:

2) Benefit Cosmetics Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Light Beige (Not Recommended)
3) Too Faced Shadow Insurance in Nude Champagne (Recommended)

The Benefit Cosmetics Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Light Beige is one of the most popular primer potion among makeup artists and beauty enthusiasts. It helps to protect your lids from creasing and fading during application. You can use it alone or over any other primers such as NYX HD powder foundation, Smashbox Photo Finish concealer, etc. It is also suitable for all skin tones.
Benefit Cosmetics Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Light Beige:
It contains light beige pigment which provides a natural look when applied to the lid. It is not too heavy and does not make your eyelid feel tight. The color will blend well with other colors you apply on top of it. It contains silicones which prevent transfer of color during application.
The Too Faced Shadow Insurance in Nude Champagne is a good base for eyeshadows. It prevents darkening and allows the colors to pop. The After Dark palette works well on top of this base, with or without primer. If you are not using the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk as a base (underneath your eyeshadow), I would definitely recommend using this eyeshadow primer.
Too Faced Shadow Insurance in Nude Champagne:
It prevents eyeshadow from creasing, fading and provides a vibrant color all day.
The Urban Decay Naked Basics palette with 2 eyeshadows and 1 blush:
The liquid liner pen works extremely well, the matte shadow is great to set the primer potion. The blush is very pigmented and I have not had any problems with it. This is such a well-rounded palette and I would not be upset if it was stolen or lost.
Make Up For Ever HD Powder Blush in Taupe:
It blends perfectly with the skin and really sets the face for further highlighting and contouring. The pigment can be built up to add more color to the face.
