My New Favourite Highlight + Extreme Highlight tips!

Okay so if you're like me and you're a complete and utter die hard highlighter hoarder then you absolutely 110% need this beautiful illuminator from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I have been testing this out since I received it last Monday and oh god, I am so in love. It's such a beautiful glittering gold and it reflects light like you would not believe. I am usually a ride or die Becca Highlighter girl but this is just as amazing, I'm so excited to try the others in Anastasia's range, I haven't even opened them yet from being so excited over this one.

So Hollywood is probably the first ever true gold highlighter I have used. I usually go for more silvery or peachy shades so I was really excited to try this out. (Good tip - If you have Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop, this mixed with it is a dream highlight!)

This highlighter is available to purchase from Anastasia's website or if you're from the UK, Cult Beauty now stock So Hollywood along with the other Illuminator shades - Click here.

I get asked a lot about highlighters and how to get your highlight looking more extreme on Instagram.   So here are some tips -

1. Use a great brush. My favourite brush for applying my highlight is the 105 Luxe Highlight Brush from Zoeva. To intensify the highlight in smaller areas I use a MAC 224 blending brush.

2. Don't just apply your highlighter to your cheekbones. I place mine on my brow bone, the tip of my nose and I pack it onto my cupids bow!

3. Don't be scared to go crazy when putting it on. When I say I pack it on, I pack it on. Who said you can't wear too much highlight?

4. Fix+ Spray from MAC is GREAT to mist over your highlight to intensify it. I spritz it at arms length all over my face when I am done applying. Fix+ is also a great product for helping powder to sink into the skin, so if you do go nuts when applying the Fix+ will settle the powder for you and help it shine!

Hope these little mini tips help! Happy highlighting. Shine bright!
