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

Pretty Ways to Use Plaid on Your Holiday Table


If you want to incorporate a little print on your holiday table, a cozy plaid is just the thing.

Go for a grey plaid and mix in non-traditional colors like plum to get a more modern holiday table setting. Or pick a forest green and navy plaid; for Christmas, you can incorporate holly or pine accents, like a pine garland centerpiece. 


Do some pattern mixing on your holiday table with a plaid tablecloth and patterned dinnerware. Plaid linens look great with an elegant Christmas toile place setting or a fun garden print. You can also layer on an additional plaid print. Pictured: Williams Sonoma Classic Tartan Plaid Tablecloth


I like to use red plaid that can easily transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas. If you already have plenty of holiday linens in solid colors, you can mix in a bit of plaid with a tartan place setting. I love these tartan plaid mugs.

If you have trouble finding the right kind of plaid table linens, take a peek in the clothing section. I love to use scarves instead of table runners. They're just the right size and come in so many different prints this time of year.
