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…

Festive Fall Decor Picks


I've got a lot of different fall decor ideas in mind for the blog, but first, I'll start with my essentials. Luckily my husband loves fall and the holidays just as much as I do.:) Here are some of my top picks for Autumn decor. Pictured: Pottery Barn Lit Natural Pumpkin Wreath and Matching Garland

Madison Harvest Silk Fall Door Wreath - 22 Inches - Handcrafted With Autumn Silk Flowers, Berries, And Mini Pumpkins

A Warm Welcome - A fall wreath is an easy way to set the tone of your home decor during fall. It is, after all, the first thing guests see when they knock on your door. I love a fall wreath made with traditional autumn colors and leaves and mini pumpkins. But I also love some of the beautiful floral fall wreaths too.

Williams Sonoma Botanical Pumpkin Dinner Collection

Calabaza Pumpkin Soup Bowls Set of Four and Matching Large Pumpkin Soup Tureen

A Festive Table Setting - We rarely use our dining table, I admit, but I still love to set a festive table for the holidays. Much like a fireplace mantle or an entryway, the dining room is an easy backdrop for fall decor. I like to add a table runner and top it off with pumpkins and fall foliage.

Comfort Classics Plaid Throw Blanket

Something Warm and Fuzzy - I like to use textures and patterns to play up the season as well. A warm plaid-printed throw blanket or a soft faux-fur toss pillow make those autumn evenings curled up on the couch seem more cozy and festive.

Mini Craft Pumpkin with Faux Fall Leaves

Set of 3 Burlap Pumpkins

Pumpkins - Of course, pumpkins are crucial for fall. Faux pumpkins, real pumpkins, pumpkin-flavored everything. I don't know what it is about the mere sight of a pumpkin that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy and full of joy, but hey, it happens. So the more pumpkin, the better!

Faux Mums in Burlap Vase

Something Pretty - Fall decor can tend to get a bit...rustic, which I do love. But I like to keep at least a little color and a feminine touch to the look with some fall flowers.

Fall Harvest Artificial Pumpkin and Berry Wreath or Table Centerpiece Candle Ring

Cozy Candles - Fall is a great time to cozy up and cuddle. And what makes cuddle time better than some candlelight? Make that a pumpkin-scented candle, and it's even better.


Elements of Nature - While I do love pumpkins more than anything for fall decor, I also like to use other natural elements like leaves, pine cones, and acorns. I really loved how Pottery Barn displayed acorns on the coffee table pictured above.

  7. I am a huge fan of throws and always switch out my lightweight ones for heavier throws when the seasons change. They are cozy and add necessary warmth to your home.
