One makeup item that I get asked about often is highlighter. I mean, sure, you use it to single out key words and phrases when studying or when your phone company has charged you that extra dollar or two, who cares, right? WRONG. *record scratch* Sorry, friends, I’m coming off of only 3 1/2 hours of sleep last night so I’m a wee bit tired today, hence why I’m clearly in the wrong frame of mind. Let’s try that again, shall we?

One makeup item that I get asked about often is highlighter. I mean, sure, you slap some gold or iridescent glitter on your face, bing, bang, boom, you’re out the door lookin’ like Beyonce, right? WRONG. Oh no, this isn’t another mistake…I’m here to tell you that highlighter is so much more than that . While the terms highlighter, illuminator and luminzer are used interchangeably in the beauty world and all, technically speaking , do different things, they are all created for the same purpose: to illuminate you from within. Nothing scary, nothing shocking, and nothing overly obvious, just a subtle glimmer to make you look healthy and radiant. In other words, a good highlighter will give you that J. Lo glow that you have long yearned for, with ease (shout-out to my friend and ex-colleague Amanda for repeating the phrase ‘J. Lo glow’ to me so often, it stuck. Miss you, girl! ♥).
