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…

An Early Bloom


The roses in Tulsa are in full bloom, a little earlier than is typical this time of year, but I'm not complaining one bit. Roses have always been one of my favorite flowers, even more so since I met my fiance, who has brought me more roses than I can count.

After seeing a lot of rose bushes blooming around town, I was hoping the rose garden in the Tulsa Garden Center would be in bloom. My fiance, always wanting to take me to pretty places, made a stop both there and to Riverside Drive for a nice walk. The rain has been very off and on, more on lately, but that just made the roses all the more beautiful with glistening water droplets.








I love red, but I sure was impressed by the beautiful peachy colors at the rose garden. What's blooming in your part of the world?

  4. I LOVE flowers, too, beautiful! My love and appreciation for their beauty only started a few years ago and I think I got it from my mom. She is the flower and plant queen! For as long as I can remember, our house always looked like a jungle, haha, and ironically, I never really stopped to look and appreciate all the beautiful plants and flowers she had. When we purchase our new home someday, I told her that I want her to help me with the gardening because she has such a great hand. Seriously, if a plant is dying, she will save it! Anyway, these photos are breathtaking, I love roses, they are my favorite flower. I just love how they open up as they bloom, becoming more and more beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead!
