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…

My Favorite Runway Looks from New York Fashion Week


Fashion week has graced us with the Spring / Summer 2016 collections from Paris, London, and elsewhere. Though I'm still basking in my favorite runway looks from New York Fashion Week. I'm an American after all, aside from my Hungarian heritage, so I look forward to seeing these particular trends trickle down in the U.S. this coming spring.

The 70s revival trend that is so prevalent for Fall 2015 will no doubt carry over into spring and summer next year. Trends like fringe, bell sleeves, and boho waves were repeated in several different collections, accompanied by over-sized acrylic jewelry, like the chunky bangles seen at Georgine. The off-the-shoulder trend seen this year is another 70s-inspired look that we'll continue to see next year.


There was a fair amount of sparkle on the runways. My favorite pieces with that trend were at Badgley Mischka. This level of glamour, often reserved for the fall and winter collections, was seen in several shows. I'm a bit tame when it comes to color, and prefer fringe and studs over flowers; but when it comes to sparkle, the more the better.


There were so many gorgeous gown as always. With the biggest red carpets coming up early next year, the fall shows are a time when stylists pick out dresses for their A-list clients. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw some stars in a flowing drop-waist gown like the ones seen at Carmen Marc Valvo.


A designer I don't typically follow, Dennis Basso, also had some beautiful dresses in his collection. These two in a black and floral print were my favorites.


While there were a lot of high-neck dresses, the deep V-neck silhouette was also very popular. I'll take each of the Jenny Packham dresses pictured above, especially that little white one.


One of my favorite designers, Prabal Gurung, showcased some beautiful two-piece dresses and an over-sized brush stroke print.


Although there was a good measure of atypical spring styles - a lot of black and shimmer - the floral prints were much more feminine and almost juvenile compared to the last few spring seasons, and the most popular bright colors on the runway were yellow and hot pink. Pictured above: Lela Rose.

Overall, the spring / summer 2016 fashion season is looking quite beautiful. Which looks are your favorites?

  1. I'm not quite sure why models always have that dead to the world look in their eyes.
