Playing the Victim, Being Vulnerable & Learning to Love the Chaotic, Messy & Wonderful Person I Am | 24 More Things I've Learned This Year


Back in February I published a post called Breaking Hearts, Facing Fears & Ditching Vanilla Sex | 24 Things I've Learned in 24 Years and it's been my most popular post to date. I just want to say thank you so much for reading, sharing, and showing so much love towards that post. I honestly never thought it would get anywhere near the attention it received and I'm so fucking grateful. 

I've been asked on more than one occasion for a follow up to that post. Now, I'm not some philosopher with a never ending list of advice and life changing quotes, (if I was though I'd totally call myself Confucius on Cocaine), but I am constantly learning through the situations and bullshit life throws at me and I'm continuously growing as a person. 

Which means, lucky for you, I've got some more wise words to share.

Who doesn't love a good highlight these days? It gives your skin a beautiful glow, and can be used to enhance features, and honestly, it can turn a look from bam to BAM, if ya know what I mean. 

(A quick LOL at five years ago Ali who thought wearing highlighter was stupid because the whole point of putting foundation on was to hide my oily, shiny skin. Oh, so young, so naive.) 

Nowadays, I live for a good glow. I absolutely love natural, rosy, and gold highlights, but I'm not one to shy away from bright and fun colors either. Even if it's just a little bit on my nose, (might just be my signature lewk), I don't think I ever skip highlighter when I do my makeup these days.

Nothing beats having that "skin glowing from within" look and nothing beats a good, affordable, highlighter to give that said look either. 

That being said, here are the 3 best drugstore highlighters to prove that you don't need to spend a lot of dough to get that bomb glow!
