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.

The Most Popular Women's Halloween Costume for 2015


Every year I can tell what most women are going to dress up as during the Halloween season. Based off my search hits and affiliate sales, it's easy to see a pattern.

If you're on a budget for Halloween, simply pair a black dress with a long black cloak that you can easily find at a party supply store or Target or Walmart, and complete the look with the Maleficent horns.
