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.

Bloody Eyeball Doughnut Holes


I love this Halloween dessert so much, because it starts with store-bought powdered doughnut holes - no baking required! I think it's just as important to have Halloween treats for the grown-ups as it is for the kids, and these bloody eyeballs are perfect for the big kids. They'd also work well for a scary movie night.


INGREDIENTS
  • powdered doughnut holes
  • red gel food coloring
  • black decorator icing in a tube (if you can't find this at your grocery store, try a craft store)

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Start with the red gel coloring and lightly dab a line from the center outward in a crooked motion, then use a toothpick to create more tiny branches (or veins) and repeat several times.

2. Dab a small dot of the black icing in the center. Repeat on the rest of the doughnuts.

That's it! You're done! Have a Happy Halloween! :)
