Luminosity is everything.
It makes photographs, defines interiors and changes how we look. Luminescence and how it can impact a surface is nothing short of miraculous.
When you think about it we should always incorporate “glow” into our make-up routine. Like so many clever cheats to looking our best, I forget about them in my rush to be done.
Reading about glow sticks or highlighters as I once called them sparked my interest and had me contemplating what I might be missing out on and what I should perhaps be doing.
Okay, it is super easy and the difference is noticeable. I love this little addition to my make-up routine.
A swipe across the cheekbones and a dash on the temples and somehow I do look brighter. And that is a good thing. These sticks are different from concealer or ysl touche eclat type highlighters. The best way I can describe their purpose is they attract and throw light. When you take an image on an iPhone and you touch the area of the photograph you wish to lighten, “to highlight” – it seems to be much like that.
I have been trialling two glow sticks and like them both – maybe this one more by a smidge. I have worn them predominantly on their own over my tinted moisturiser without a hint of blush. If I were out and about in the evenings I would add my blush and then swipe it across the top of the cheekbones to catch the light.
Small gains, small finds; it’s keeping me happy. xv
