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

A Most Lovely Detail


During the wedding planning process, I'm constantly reminded that there are so many details. Not just what kinds of cake for example; but which flavor, then what kind of filling, then what type of frosting, then which type of border, which type of cake stand to serve it on, cake topper or no cake topper, etc., etc. And that's just the cake we're talking about. Another set of wedding details that is constantly in the back of my mind includes what I'll be wearing, accessories and all and how to do my hair and makeup.

I do have the most important part picked out - the dress!:) Though I've yet to pick out my shoes, jewelry, and other accessories. Veil or no veil? I think I've settled on no veil. Hair up or down? There are a lot of details to think about, but I've also learned that figuring out one detail often leads to an inevitable decision on another.

After I picked out my dress, for example, I knew that because of the neckline (and my hunched shoulders) that I would want to wear my hair down. And after I figured out how I wanted to wear my hair, I knew which kind of accessory I wanted - a crystal hairband.

So while I'd originally imagined my hair up with a small bridal comb in the back, along with a floor-length veil, after seeing my dress on and alterations completed, I'm going with a half-up do and a crystal bridal headband. I haven't settled on which one exactly just yet, but of course it'll be nice and sparkly.:)

  3. The crystal headbands are beautiful. Personally, I think veils are outdated.

    1. Thanks, Norma.:) I tried on a few veils I liked, but yeah a lot of them seem outdated and I'm happy I decided to go without one.
