Makeup Look: Becca Highlighter + Lorac Pro 3 FOTD

It took a while for me to join the highlighting bandwagon. I was apprehensive about how it would suit my skintone, whether I would look like Edward Cullen, or if I would have to replace/alter/avoid other products in my makeup routine, and so on.
Some months ago, I had tried "strobing" with reasonably decent results (see here), so when I received the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in the Cult Beauty Summer 2016 Goody Bag (here), I experimented with it. Here are the results.

Thoughts?

I confess, I prefer my face when it is not so highlighted. My skin is is oily enough as it is, and the highlighter makes the oil slick look worse through the day - all sweaty. Also, a bunch of people told me I "was wearing makeup". It actually looks subtler in photographs!
