It's the hottest makeup trend for this spring and summer- highlighting! Who doesn't love a fresh, glowy face, highlighted in all the right places? I absolutely love this trend. If you don't know what highlighting is-- it's basically the opposite of contouring. When contouring, you create shadows on the low points of your face; whereas highlighting creates a lifted effect on the high points of your face (aka tops of cheekbones, nose, chin, forehead). HOW DO YOU GET THIS WONDERFUL LOOK, you may ask... Well, I have the perfect answer for you- the Anastasia Beverly Hills "Glow Kit!"
When I first ordered this palette I was extremely skeptical. Why? First, I was terrified it would look like I slapped streaks of glitter all over my face- That'd be a disaster. I mean, ha, unless you're into that kinda thing, then you do you!!!! And second, the price wasn't terrible. Most single, high quality, highlighters run about $25-45, and this one is a kit of four and is only $40. After getting it in the mail I was super excited to test it out. I couldn't have been more impressed after swatching the colors. THEY ARE AMAZING.
This kit has some of the best highlighters I've ever used-- even over my Hourglass ones! The product itself is so incredibly creamy, literally like butter. These colors give you either a natural glow, or the perfect glam shine look. With its high pigmentation, the product lasts all day. Anastasia offers this kit in two shades: one for lighter skin and one for darker skin. If you don't own this palette already, YOU NEED IT! It is incredible.
