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

Dresser Mansion in Tulsa, OK


Earlier this year, my fiance and I found the perfect space for our wedding that will be in December. We only needed to tour one place to make up our minds, because the Dresser Mansion was absolutely gorgeous and exactly what we need for a small but elegant, formal wedding.





The dark woods, rich texture of the walls and drapes, and the warm glow from all of the sconces and candelabra fixtures are exactly what I had in mind when I pictured my wedding. We're going with a rich red and some gold accents for the color palette, so the space is the perfect backdrop. And it's so beautiful all it's own, it really doesn't need a lot of decorating. What's even better is we're getting married in December, so the mansion will have it's annual holiday decor up. My fiance and I both love Christmas...I mean, who doesn't? But we REALLY love the holidays, so it's the perfect time for us to celebrate our marriage.






The Dresser Mansion has several levels. One for the ceremony, reception and buffet area, a lower level containing a really cool library, and an upper level with a bridal suite and groom's quarters.








We are so very excited to celebrate our love and will of course share more pics and details on here throughout the process. This weekend it's dress shopping for me, our Save the Dates should be arriving in the mail shortly, and next after that is, I believe, some yummy cake tasting.:)
