KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, guys!! I've got one beautiful small biz to share with you today, and then I'm doing things a bit differently for today's Friday Finds. I'm getting a bit overwhelmed with complimentary goodies this week, and I wanted to take this time to share my favorites with you. I'll be doing an unboxing video featuring the sample items, to post next week! But first, I did want to share one gorgeous shop with you guys. Check it all out below!

Pictured above are some handwoven home goods by Melody Fulone. Her shop is full of unique and beautifully woven wall hangings, pillows, many other home accessories; and even a bit of fiber art jewelry. I really love the neutral colors and the modern designs.

Shop the 2018 Winter Collection. And keep an eye out for a DIY kit for a crochet wall hanging in a few weeks. Melody will also be releasing her spring collection in late March!


This next brand will go into both an unboxing as well as a B…

How to Get Beautifully Bronzed for Summer

The Best Bronzers

One of the best things I've done to my beauty routine was adding bronzer and highlighter to my blush process. Bronzer really helps define the cheekbones and jawline and adds the perfect summer glow, while ighlighting helps bring focus and light to other areas. This makes a big difference especially in photos. It's perfect if you're going to be in a summer wedding. Related: Five Beauty Tips for Looking Gorgeous in Photos

This video tutorial below by Nur for HSN is one of the best I've seen on how to apply bronzer. You can get bronzer in several different forms, though my favorite is a powder compact. If you're new to bronzing, I suggest you skip the highlighting. Start with a simple bronzer and blush compact. I really like how the video instructs to use a matte bronzer. I've used a bronzer and highlighter with shimmer recently, and while I like the shimmer on my cheeks, the shimmery highlighter made the wrinkles on my forehead stand out a lot. Perhaps it's best to just stick with the blush when it comes to shimmer or an allover subtle illuminating primer. If you're ready to try both bronzing and highlighting, go for a trio or quad compact like the ones pictured above. I really love the Trish McEvoy quad. You can use the white powder to adjust the bronzer shade.



I especially love bronzer quads for travel and for getting ready in a hurry. I often use mine to double as eyeshadow. I've already blogged several times about how I prefer my bronzing quad for eyeshadow. I have dark brown hair with olive skin, so I love to use various brown shades on my eyes. For that I use a bronzer set with shimmer. I'm currently using this Wet N Wild Mega Glo powder. Whenever I only have a few minutes to apply makeup or if I'm just running errands, I simply swirl a small blush brush over the whole thing then swipe it over my cheeks and eyelids. It only takes a few seconds, and I'm literally done with my makeup in under 10 minutes.

If you don't already use a bronzer in addition to your blush, I encourage you to give it a try this summer. Here is some additional info on which bronzer shade to pick for your face and which type of makeup brush to use.
