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. I’ve seen all too many makeup vloggers apply that all over, from the forehead to the tip of the nose, to the cupid’s bow and the chin. Those however, are rather places for a creamy skin-tone concealer.


How to Pick the Right Shade of Concealer

Style Trends 2013: Three Top Spring Looks for Women


I'm still wearing sweaters as it's freezing in Maryland today. None the less, I'm still celebrating the first day of Spring on my blogs this week. Spring fashion is one of my favorite things about the season. For Spring 2013 fashion trends for women are bold and graphic. Color blocking is still a huge trend, which lends itself to the graphic black and white trend and the bold color trend. The edgy florals look is my favorite new trend for Spring. It mixes florals with bold color or black and as you can see above, incorporates the other two Spring trends.

How to Style the Top Spring Trends for Women

1. Graphic Black and White: Black and white have always been trendy in women's fashion, but for Spring 2013, it's huge. You can simply color block black pants with a white top and pair it with a black and white striped bag, or pair a striped dress with black accessories. In addition to stripes, geometric prints are also popular when it comes to the black and white trend for Spring.

2. Edgy Florals: The modern florals trend may look tricky, but it's actually quite simple. Pick a piece in the new edgy floral print and pair it with a plain black piece. You can incorporate the black and white trend by pairing the floral look with a black and white handbag.

3. Bold Color: Whether pastels or neons or even a rich shade like monaco blue, bold color is still a huge Spring and Summer trend this year. You can take one solid color and pair it with neutrals, or pair a few colors for bold color blocking. If you're a beginner with color blocking, simply pair a solid-colored dress with a color-block clutch.
