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…

Snapshots from the Week


The week of Christmas is finally here!:) And while it's filled with parties, family visits, last-minute shopping, and a whole lot of baking (with regular work squeezed in); I find myself quite relaxed this week...perhaps because I'm going on vacation right after Christmas. Or perhaps it's because I've learned that I simply can't fit in everything I want to do, and I'm not going to ruin the things I do do have time for by stressing over the thing I don't.

Our date night during the week was extra special as there are several places downtown Tulsa to see Christmas lights. We started at Spaghetti Warehouse, walked through Guthrie Green, and took some pics at Winterfest where there is a big tree and more lights.


And because we can't seem to have a date without Starbucks or Barnes and Noble (which is totally okay with me), we went for coffee on Brookside, where I saw this super cool window display at a home store called SR Hughes.


My regular bouquet from that handsome man pictured above.:) I'll never tire of red roses, but this holiday-themed version was a very beautiful surprise.



As I often do this time of year, I made lots of yummy presents for friends and family. You can get the recipe for my chocolate peanut butter bark and the chocolate peanut butter popcorn.

I'm excited to spend extra time with loved ones this week, though I will still be posting up to Christmas day, so stop back by for last-minute gift ideas and some more yummy holiday recipes. What do you have planned for the busy holiday week? Whether you'll be with friends and family or on vacation, I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!:)
