Well, hello, there friend! Happy Thursday!
So, this article is about 15 days overdue but, you know what they say, better late than never! 🙂
If you read Volume 1 of The Colour Study, you know that my goal in this little experiment of mine is to switch up the aesthetic of my Instagram page on a monthly basis, as to fit a certain season, mood and maybe even evoke a certain type of emotion from my followers. The first month, October, I opted to start strong with a bold colour, orange, and if you remember, I mentioned that for the month of November, I wanted to choose a theme and colour that is a little bit softer and more neutral in tone. However, I didn’t compile a nice little overview for you of how it turned out, which is so not fair, or cool, especially if you don’t follow me on Instagram (which you totally should, it’s essentially my life at the moment, I love it SO much! ;))! And so, it is time for a #ColourStudy update (YAY!)! Let’s begin, shall we?? 🙂
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! ♥).
