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…

Snapsots from the Week


This past week was off to a great start, as I got something beautiful and sparkly as an early birthday gift from my boyfriend.:) It was given to me early so I could wear it to The Nutcracker this weekend, and so I could keep it in mind while dress shopping. Ladies, it's simple really, a man who not only wants to give you what you want, but wants to give you exactly what you want and in a way that makes you even more happy, someone who genuinely takes joy in your happiness...that's a keeper!


I did some gift shopping of my own, especially when I spotted this adorable "Meowy Christmas" sweater at Target. It's perfect for my youngest daughter, who is completely obsessed with cats. They also have an "Oh Snap" gingerbread sweater, a "Ba Hum Pug" dog sweater, and a "Fleece Navidad" sheep sweater. I was so tempted to buy all of them.


For date night...or day in this case, we went to see Krampus; it was very fitting as my girls and I celebrate St. Nicholas Day every year. We introduced his girls to the tradition with stockings full of candies and goodies (I know, it's supposed to be a boot, but I can't get past the idea of putting candy and treats in shoes that they put their feet in). After the movie, we went somewhere new for coffee. I always forget how much I like the little shops and restaurants on Brookside and Cherry Street. It was a nice break from the malls and busy stores.


We tried The Coffee House on Cherry Street and were very pleasantly surprised. It's got great atmosphere, great decor, yummy treats, and yummy coffee. I had the Chocolate Crinkle Cookie, and I'm dying for another one. Definitely a place to return to.


I wore my new necklace out. It's quite perfect, in that it'll be beautiful with a cocktail dress, but it's also just the right size to wear with a lace top or a simple sweater. It's the "Crest Collar Necklace" at Bauble Bar, by the way.


As I said above, St. Nicholas left some goodies...in stockings. I can't get over the boot thing, I just can't. So why not stockings?

How have you been enjoying the holidays so far?
