I have medium olive skin, and it's hard for me to find the perfect illuminator as well. Most come out too silvery or too dark. This one in the tan color is perfect. I've tried many, but this one is hands down the best. The color is not "notice my make up" kind of color, but a very soft, natural glow. Almost looks like nothing, which is what I love. The other newer ones like Hourglass Ambient and Becca Shimmering Perfecter are great, but too much and you start to shine. This one is much more natural, although some people may say the payoff isn't good. For me it's just right. Going back to this after I run out of the Becca and Hourglass.
Well I am also latina and I often find using lighter tones likes pinks or peach tones gives me more of a golden tan because it helps brighten me up. The bronze tones can tend to blend in to much and can make you look to dull or washed out.
