Easy Everyday Contouring and Highlighting

Contouring and highlighting has been a huge makeup trend in recent years, and with good reason - you can use concealer to achieve more defined cheek bones, to make your lips look bigger, and my personal favorite - to hide a double chin. And despite all of the intricate tutorials out there, I want to show you that it can actually be quick an easy!

The first trick is to start with the right concealer shades. First, let’s get one thing straight: when I say highlighter, I do not mean the super light and shimmery highlighter that should only be reserved for above the cheekbones.

Red Carpet Fashion: Hollywood Glamour at the 2013 Oscars

There wasn't much of a common trend at the 2013 Oscars. The celebs wore dresses in all different kinds of colors and styles. If anything, the one commonality between the stars on the red carpet was traditional Hollywood glamor. Winner for best leading actress Jennifer Lawrence showed up in Dior Haute Couture, while Jessica Chastain (my personal favorite on the red carpet) wore an elegant strapless Armani Prive. Naomi Watts, also in Armani Prive, was either a hit or miss for most critics. Jessica Chastain, along with Reese Witherspoon added to the glamor with their side-swept Hollywood waves. The majority of the jewelry was understated in style though mostly consisted of brilliantly shining diamonds. Other stars that shined on the red carpet (not pictured below) include Jennifer Hudson, Nichole Kidman, Selma Hayek, and Stacey Keibler and more. You can view all of the Oscars red carpet arrivals here on the Oscars home page.

  1. I saw a remark in a paper yesterday from someone who thought it would be wonderful if just once on the red carpet, an actor, when asked who they're wearing, would tell the reporter to mind their own business.

    Halle looks slightly ridiculous!

    1. Ha! I heard today that reporters backstage asked Jennifer Lawrence what she was thinking when she fell, and she said something to the effect of, you're seriously asking me what I was thinking just then? It starts with an f!
