The One Palette You Need to Fake Good Lighting
It isn’t often that a makeup palette’s execution is so perfect it makes you giddy. Such is the case, though, with Anastasia Beverly Hills’ new Moon Child Glow Kit ($40). The second I laid eyes on the colors, I felt good vibes—like the makeup equivalent of a rose quartz crystal. The included shades are shimmery, metallic highlighters that catch the light in the dreamiest of ways. Think the glorious filtering properties of candlelight mixed with the magic of moonlight.
You can use each hue as a highlighter—just tap and blend across the high points of your cheeks (the colors are cool and icy yet shockingly subtle). Or if you want more of a boldly celestial feel, you can apply it to your eyelids, lips, and Cupid’s bow. Keep scrolling to read more about the shades included and how best to use them!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Moon Child Glow Kit ($40)
Each of the colors in the palette serves a different, cool purpose. There’s Blue Ice, a diamond white with an icy blue reflection that’s perfect to brighten your lids, the inner corners of your eyes, and your Cupid’s bow. Then there are shades of blue, silver, lavender, and pink opal to highlight your cheekbones and gold to show off your eye color. You can even mix the powder in with a lip gloss for a kaleidoscopic effect on a night out. Truly, the possibilities are endless. For a brightly amplified glow, apply with a damp makeup brush or sponge, and hit the town. You’re essentially adding a filter IRL, and it’ll instantly pull you out of your mercury is in retrograde–inspired funk.
