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…

Macrame 10 Ways


One of the biggest home decor and craft trends lately has definitely been macrame. From wall hangings to plant holders and many other home accessories, the art of knotting string has greatly surpassed yarn crafts like knitting and crochet. It certainly has a more boho-chic and modern look to it. Personally, it doesn't quite fit in with our traditional and very Pottery Barn-ish decor. But I think it's the perfect addition if you have a lot of boho, eclectic decor in your home. Macrame would also blend in well with casual coastal decor. Pictured: Large Macrame Wall Hanging


The most popular, and one of the easiest to make yourself (depending on the size and design), is a macrame wall hanging. Pictured above: TIMEYARD Macrame Wall Hanging Tapestry


This hanging macrame chair is definitely not a DIY, but if you have the space and love boho decor, it's a very unique and beautiful piece to have.


Macrame bunting, just like any other kind of bunting or decorative banner, can be hung over a fireplace, and entryway vignette, or above a small headboard. This Flber Macrame Banner Woven Wall Hanging banner would be lovely in a neutral nursery.


Macrame hanging storage is perfect for a small space, like a bathroom or entryway. With little hooks attached, it's just the thing for organizing jewelry and accessories or for hanging keys and other smaller items by the door.

Large macrame panels can serve as either curtains or a decorative room divider. To add more privacy, simply layer white fabric panels underneath. Pictured above: RISEON 33"W x 68"L Butterfly Macrame Wall Hanging Tapestry


This look could go either inside or outside. Cluster a few macrame plant hangers for a very boho-chic vibe. Pictured above: Two's Company Set of 5 Hand Braided Macramé Plant Hangers/Candleholders


To bring a little boho-chic into your dining area, try a beautiful macrame table runner. It makes for a lovely centerpiece, though you could also use it as a decorative table runner on a sideboard, mantle, or entryway table. Pictured above: Noma Macrame boho placement macrame table runner


Accessories like the macrame plant holders pictured above don't have to just be used as plant hangers. You can fill them with decorative bowls to use as hanging storage, or fill them with tealight holders for some outdoor hanging candles.

Another great use for the large macrame panels is a photo or ceremony backdrop. It's perfect for a boho-chic wedding! Pictured above: Bohemian Macrame Wall Decor Boho Chic Style Macrame Wedding Backdrop


I'm not sure how easy these macrame decorative bowls would be to make. They involve knotting and connecting rings. Though they're certainly worth buying ready-made. They would look great clustered on a counter top, table, or an oversized coffee table. Fill them with fruit, decorative spheres, or leave them as-is. I think they're pretty enough all on their own, don't you? Pictured above: Shiraleah Noemi Macrame Oversize Decorative Bowl
