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!

KCL Friday Finds


Happy Black Friday!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a great kick-off to the holiday season. How many of you are putting up Christmas decorations this weekend? Or perhaps you're taking advantage of all the great Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday Sales. The first find today is something you'll need a lot of if you've been shopping. How pretty is this Christmas Sweater Print Wrapping Paper by Norman's Printery? For those of you who would much rather shop from home, in your PJ's, here are some great deals on some beautiful holiday decor!


Now is the time to get a head start on personalized holiday gifts. For newly married couples, or couples with a new baby, I think a personalized gift with the family's name on it is just the thing! This Joy to the World Personalized Print by JIBE Personalized Prints is so pretty and festive. It would be a welcome addition to any family's Christmas decor, and would be something special to display year after year.

This Christmas Stag Table Runner by DII Design Imports beautifully displays the black vintage-style printing that is so popular this year. Check out all of the gorgeous table setting decor for Christmas at DII Design Imports. As I was browsing their shop, I also noticed a lot of holiday plaid!


While some have been counting down Christmas for months, everyone starts the countdown after Thanksgiving. I love a fun advent calendar, but I'm also really loving the chalkboard countdown signs as well. I love the pretty ornament design on this Countdown to Christmas Sign by Allegiance Design Co. It's a nice 10 by 10 inches in size - perfect for a tabletop display or on your fireplace mantle. You can also find some cute and funny Christmas signs at Allegiance Design Co. One of my other favorites is the "He Sees You When You're Drinking" sign. It would be the perfect Christmas sign for a bar cart. :)


The last find for today is perfect for an ugly sweater Christmas party! These Ugly Christmas Sweater Wine Bottle Covers by FEFE Home create a fun, cozy display. It's also the perfect way to wrap a bottle of wine to give as a hostess gift.

So grab a cup of coffee and some leftover pie, and enjoy some online shopping from home! I'll leave links so you can shop all of these stores below. Happy Holidays!
