Anastasia Glow Kit: That Glow

Highlighter is my thing! It's the product that takes me from looking like a potato to looking like a slightly healthier potato. I'm a pale girl so sometimes my foundation can make my skin look really flat and washed out, so I heavily rely on bronzer, blush and highlighter to inject some life back to my face. That being said,  I'm on a constant hunt for highlighters. I'm a strong believer of you can never have enough of a good thing and believe me, this is good. I have quite a few Anastasia products but I believe that they've outdone themselves with these palettes. The colour combinations of all three palettes available are stunning. I've been tempted by all of them but decided to settle for That Glow for now. I've had it for a while but only just started to play with all the shades. Up until now I've tended to just stick to the lightest shade. Big mistake. Big, huge! (name that quote). All four shades are beautifully pigmented and easy to blend. Great for a subtle look but the intensity can be built up quite easily. 

My favourite brush to use for highlighter is the Morphe 510. It's really small and great for a precise application, so if you aren't someone who wants to pack it on and look like the tin man then maybe try the 509 instead. The 510's slightly more voluptuous, fluffier older sister. Personally I enjoy blinding oncoming traffic with my glow. 

I use the shades Sunburst, Bubbly and Dripping in Gold as traditional highlighters. Applying them to the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, cupids bow and forehead if I'm feeling a particularly glowy look. Golden Bronze is strictly reserved for creating a tradition between by bronzer and highlighter. Excessive? Maybe, but I'm totally into it. 

What's your favourite highlighter?
