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!

Sophisticated Flat Summer Sandals


Once you reach a certain age, those rubber flip-flops have got to go. Unless you're at the pool, showering at the gym, or running outside to take out the garbage, it's time for sandals that are a bit more sophisticated. I love a great gladiator sandal.
