MakeupGeek’s Afterglow pigment is a light white-gold shade; intense when layered on itself, but also easy to wear in everyday looks. My most favorite method of wearing this shade is as a middle of the lid highlight to help brighten looks and give “light” to the eyes. Its finely milled texture makes applying it dry a little troublesome and tends to lead to fall out everywhere. I usually apply it wet by packing a small amount onto a brush and spritzing it with a setting spray or water. This shade reminds me a lot of MAC’s Blonde Gold in color, but is a more affordable option. Like so many other pigments, I also find Afterglow to be versatile in different applications. I use it quite often as an eyeliner, a cheek highlight, a nail polish (just mix it in with some clear polish!) and as a highlight on the center of the bottom lip.
