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…

DIY Save the Dates with Vistaprint


I wasn't sure about how I wanted our wedding invitations to look until Ken and I picked out some samples from Wedding Paper Divas, and they turned out so beautiful. But for the Save the Date cards, I had something very specific in mind.

Whether you're after a very specific and personal look, or if you're simply on a budget, using an online printing company like Vistaprint and uploading your own background image is totally the way to go!

If you aren't handy with a camera, use a photo of you and your fiance. On the other hand, if you are good with a camera, try a collage of things that hold sentimental value. I used a few prints, red roses, and mementos from our dates to create a flat lay that reflected the time we spent getting to know each other and falling in love.




If you're picky with design, like I am, you can opt to upload your own design completely. For example, rather than using their templates with a background image, you can place text over your image before you upload it to Vistaprint.

You can add on lots of fun coordinating items like sticker seals for the envelopes, labels for wedding favors, and address labels.

As you can see above, our wedding is next month!! I'm so excited to marry my favorite person and to finally be able to call the man I love my husband.:)
