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.

Editor's Picks: Valentine's Day Cookie Cutters


Chocolates are pretty much required for Valentine's Day, but making sweet cookies is fun too. I was poking around the web for inspiration and came across some super cute ideas at Williams-Sonoma. How adorable and sweet are those love bird cookies? They have similar cookies here that I bet were made with mustache cookie cutters, but as I already have heart cookie cutters, I'll probably attempt the first ones. Use one of their heart cookie cutters to create the look yourself. Or just buy them here: Williams-Sonoma Personalized Giant Valentine's Day Cookies

After seeing the Valentine's Day macarons on their site, with "love" stenciled on, I got the idea to use a stencil and color mist frosting to create something similar, or perhaps a food coloring marker, whether on a macaron or cookie. Sometimes it's less about skill and more about having the right tools in the kitchen.


The Williams-Sonoma Valentine's Day Cookie Cutters on Ring come with a few hearts and X's and O's, perfect for making a sweet selection of Valentine's Day cookies. I love the heart with the arrow.
