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…

Tips on Creating Your Guest List


We're having a very intimate wedding, and by that I mean like under 40...closer to 30 counting the people who may not be able to come, and I couldn't be happier. For one, we don't have to spend a fortune on catering and an open bar ha. But in all seriousness, I'm happy that we'll be surrounded by the people who are truly happy for us.

Still, even including family, friends, and coworkers; why is our guest list so small? For one, we decided right at the beginning that we weren't going to invite people simply because they were related. That may seem harsh, but we believe that blood does not always mean family. If you've had the unfortunate experience of family treating you badly, you can understand exactly what I mean. We want to be surrounded by loving and supportive people on our wedding day.

My fiance received a comment from someone regarding this that was along the lines of "You're acting like your wedding is all about you." And we were both like...um, well, yeah it kind of IS all about us haha.

I think a good rule of thumb when reviewing a potential guest when it comes to friends is whether or not you've seen or talked to the person in the last year. Of course there are exceptions. For example, I have a few very good friends from college that I've kept up with over the years but haven't had a chance to see in person recently as they live in different states. And I have a few friends in town who I haven't caught up with since moving back to Tulsa but have kept up with on social media and would love for them to meet my other half.

So, if you find yourself mulling over who to invite to your special day, remember that first and foremost it really is YOUR day...your moment to celebrate being in love and becoming one with your partner, surrounded by love and good vibes.:)

  1. I totally agree with you, blood doesntt make you family if you hardly see them..and friends can be family when you need them the most, so those are the kind of people that should be at your wedding :) xx

  2. I think you're wise to keep the guest list small. The wedding should always be about the bride and groom, first and foremost.
