Spotlight On: MUG Afterglow

afterglowMakeupGeek’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.

  1. Hi Zabrena, do u think afterglow is more similar to blonds gold pigment or naked pigment? I have both mac pigments, thanks. By the way all looks are really pretty 🙂

    1. Hi Amber. I know you asked Zabrina but I figured I could help. I have all 3 of these (mug Afterglow, Mac blonde’s gold, and mac naked) and I just swatched them side by side to be able to give you a definite answer. Mac’s Blonde’s Gold is definitely closer in color to mug Afterglow!

  2. Hey, Zabrina! I just became a member, and I’m loving these looks! I think it would be really awesome if we could “favorite” a look, or something like that just to remember which looks really worked or we want to recreate. Is there any feature like this, or a feature you’d be willing to consider adding to the site? Thanks girl! 🙂
