How do you do a highlighter marker effect in Photoshop?

I am very new to Photoshop and I am having trouble figuring something out.

I would like to have an effect that looks exactly like a real highlighter. But I want it to really act like a highlighter too, i.e. I would like to brush over my pencil tool marks with this highlighter so that I can still see the pencil underneath it.

So far I have tried lowering the Opacity on the brush tool but that doesn’t create that bright highlighter effect I’m looking for.

If anybody knows how to do this that would be awesome!

Thanks!!

Put your markings into a new top layer, give to it blending mode Multiply
