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

The Best End of Summer Dress Sales


Now is the perfect time to pick out a dress for homecoming or to find an affordable bridesmaid gown. Sites like Aisle Style are having end of summer sales with great deals on cocktail dresses, formal gowns, and prom dresses. Pictured: Strapless Sweetheart Pleated Chiffon Knee-Length Dress
 

I've suggested several times before on the blog, and personally went this route when I needed to purchase a bridesmaid dress, that a perfect way to save money on a gown is to try on dresses in a store to see which type you and the bride like best and which kind looks best on your figure and then find something similar online. This will help you get the look you want for less than half what you would pay in a boutique or bridal shop. If the bridesmaid dresses are in a universal color, like navy or classic red, you won't have to worry about color matching. Another option would be for the bride to have all of the bridesmaids pick from the same website to make sure the colors match properly. Pictured: Lilac Lace Bodice Chiffon Bridesmaid Gown


If you're concerned about sale items not being on trend, take a quick look at the new fall collections, or simply go with a classic piece. There are quite a few pieces from these prom dresses 2016 that will still be on trend both this fall and well into 2017. The two-piece gowns, for example, have been very trendy the last few years and will continue to be on trend for years to come. Pictured: Two-Piece Beaded Bodice with Tulle Skirt

 

Short prom dresses are perfect for other occasions as well, like a special night out or a holiday cocktail party. Personally I'd love to get something like the dress pictured above for the next time my fiance takes me on a fancy date to see the ballet. Pictured: Sleeveless V-Neck Lace and Chiffon Mini Dress
