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…

KCL Friday Finds


Happy weekend!! Are you as excited as I am?! It's just a week before Thanksgiving, and I've been seeing so many beautiful Christmas decorations on Instagram already. While it's been hard to resist, I've managed to save my Christmas decor for next weekend. We traditionally put it up the day after Thanksgiving, while we listen to Christmas music and drink hot cocoa. And you can bet we'll be watching a Christmas movie on Thanksgiving.

So in the spirit of we just can't wait until Christmas, today's Friday Finds post is all about beautiful holiday decor. Grab a cup of coffee, put on some Christmas tunes, and enjoy some festive shopping! Pictured Above: Burlap Christmas Antlers Address Pillow by The West Garden


The first find is so perfect for a festive front porch! The West Garden carries holiday pillows that are customized, unique and just the thing to add to your outdoor Christmas decor. The Burlap Reindeer Antlers Outdoor Christmas Pillow pictured above, for example, can be paired with one of the shop's burlap address pillows. Have one of these festive pillows personalized with your house number for a look that says holiday guests are welcome!


For a festive touch outdoors or inside, check out Paper Moon & Co for farmhouse decor with a holiday twist. I love the beautiful Christmas Tree Banner pictured above. Pair it with a holiday wreath, above your mantle, or hang it on the wall underneath a rustic wooden holiday sign. At Paper Moon & Co. you can find several different holiday decor items, like pillows and tea towels. A cute Christmas tea towel makes for the perfect holiday hostess gift!


For holiday gifts that look just as pretty on the outside, splurge on some high-quality handmade gift tags. These Christmas Gift Tags at The Goods-by Rebecca are so beautiful with a simple bit of red twine over a brown paper package. They are printed on 100% recycled paper and come in several different designs. For a nice variety, go for the Set of 10 Rustic Christmas Tags in "Merry & Bright", Watercolor "Merry Christmas", "From Santa", and "Baby It's Cold Outside". You can even add twine for the tags onto your order!I think it creates such a pretty vintage Christmas look, don't you? The first 25 customers will receive 25% OFF!



This last shop caught my eye on Instagram with its adorable knit elves, snowmen, and Santas! At JL Knitting you can get a truly heirloom-worthy Elf on a Shelf, as it is hand-knitted and unique in design. Though I think my favorite is the Large Knit Santa. Isn't he so cute?! In addition to the knit elves and Santas, Lucy at JL Knitting also makes the prettiest and cozy-looking knit ornaments. There are several different designs available; like Christmas trees, snowflakes, and mini Christmas stockings. Though my very favorite ones are the knit bauble ornaments!

Let me know in the comments below which ones are your favorite! I've listed each shop one more time below, so you can grab another cup of coffee and enjoy some festive online shopping. Have a lovely weekend!! 🎄😊
