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…

February Letter from the Editor


February has always been one of my favorite months. I love just about every holiday, and a holiday that involves love, hearts, and cute pink-and-red products...and of course chocolate, how could anyone not like February?

Though there are those who shun the holiday. People who are either recently heart-broken or have been single for longer than they care to be. I admit, it can be tough to be surrounded by reminders of what you wish you had, but the thing is, most of us have someone to love. Whether it be a parent, a child, a friend, or a romantic love; Valentine's Day doesn't have to be all about whether or not you have a date.

Granted this year I do have someone, finally. Someone who takes the initiative to be romantic, so much so that I have already gotten a gigantic bear and yummy chocolates simply because I had a rough week and he wanted to cheer me up.

But I've been without this wonderful man during previous Valentine's Days, and I always found ways to celebrate love. I focused on myself, my friends, and my family. I've spent years going out and getting my own chocolates, my own flowers, because I wanted those things. I've given my daughters Valentine's Day baskets filled with stuffed animals and little heart candies. I've received Valentine's Day cards from my mother, hand-written notes from my daughters, and flowers from my best friend.

My point is, you don't need a boyfriend or girlfriend to enjoy the holiday. You just need a good attitude and some love. Have a Happy Valentine's Day.:)
