Instagram in a pan | Topshop Crescent Moon


We all love the brightening, perfecting and generally fabulous effect of an Instagram filter right? Well I think I've found just the product to give you that faux glow in real life- Topshop 'Crescent Moon'. I've actually had this highlighter for a year or so but really struggled to find  a good way of applying it as I'm so used to cream and liquid formulas. However, this all changed back in January when the Real Techniques contour brush from the Core Collection came into my life and began operation 'complexion perfection'. Not only is this brush great for creating a killer bronzer contour, but also amazing at lightly dusting this pearlescent Topshop powder across the tops of the cheeks, brow bone and down the nose for a super pretty soft focus brightening effect that slims and enhances your facial features. It's even precise enough to do the whole Cupid's bow thing, resulting in contours and highlights even Kim K would be proud of! The actual Crescent Moon product is just as wonderful- it has a very flattering cool peachy tone and just the right amount of shimmer to give a glow without emulating the 'Edward Cullen in the sun' look. I love the name, the simple packaging, the below £10 price point and fact that a little goes a long way so it will last for ages. It really is the next best thing to having real life 'Valencia' and might even cause you to #nofilter...

What's your favourite faux glow?
