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!

Azaleas at Woodward Park in Tulsa


No doubt, one of the reasons so many people use Woodward Park in Tulsa as a place for portrait sessions is the abundance of beautiful azaleas. They're currently past peak bloom, but the pink azaleas are still looking gorgeous. I couldn't resist snapping a few close-ups of the flowers on a trip to the park over the weekend.

The azalea is officially going into my mental note of flowers I want to plant one of these days, especially the pink ones!
