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

For the highlights, you want a concealer that is one to two shades lighter than your foundation. If you just go one shade lighter, as I have, pick one with a yellow tone, so y…

Easy Pumpkin Spice Pancakes


For fall, I love making pancakes with pumpkin, apple, or maple flavors. I do love to bake from scratch, but when it comes to weekend pancakes, I like to start with an easy pancake mix. It's so easy to take it up a notch with milk, extract flavorings and fresh fruit. For easy pumpkin pancakes, we simply added canned pumpkin puree and some pumpkin pie spices. My new favorite thing to add to fall recipes is concentrated liquid maple flavoring. You can make these pancakes without the maple flavoring, but if you have the chance to pick some up for the recipe, it is well worth it. You can add it to countless fall recipes like bread pudding, pumpkin muffins, apple pie, etc.

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups dry boxed pancake mix
  • 1 & 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp maple flavoring (optional)                 

*Note: If you're starting with pumpkin spice pancake mix, simply omit the spices above and just add the milk and pumpkin puree.


I topped our pumpkin pancakes with my Easy Salted Caramel Sauce and some chopped pecans. It's the perfect indulgence for a fall brunch, especially if family is in town for the holidays. Enjoy!

  2. Krisztina, I can only look wistfully at the food photos and wish I had a live-in chef to make them for me--but I have used many of your household suggestions successfully. I wonder, have you ever thought about doing a Q&A page? I have a lot of questions!

    1. Lol. Well, I'm so happy to hear you've been able to put some of my info to good use.:) Yes, I've really been thinking about doing a Q & A page lately, so it's so funny that you ask. I need to get on the ball and get a page like that up for the holidays! It would be a great place for people to leave any additional questions in the comment section.
