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.

Holiday Sparkle


It the perfect time of year to dress up just a bit more than usual; whether it's for a holiday cocktail party, a museum event, or the ballet. We ladies all want an excuse to wear a pretty dress and something sparkly, don't we? I know I do. Pictured: Bauble Bar Crest Collar Necklace


You don't have to go overboard to get in on the trend. After all, you may not have a super dressy occasion to attend.

Here are some more of my top picks. Pictured: Anthropologie Feathered Fete Clutch

  3. I love a little sparkle around the holiday time. These pieces are really cute. I'm not a fan of Express but to my surprise, the sequin top lured me in. How weird. You may have changed my mind about the store. Great finds.
