Easy Everyday Contouring and Highlighting

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.

KCL Friday Finds


Happy weekend, guys!! I've got one beautiful small biz to share with you today, and then I'm doing things a bit differently for today's Friday Finds. I'm getting a bit overwhelmed with complimentary goodies this week, and I wanted to take this time to share my favorites with you. I'll be doing an unboxing video featuring the sample items, to post next week! But first, I did want to share one gorgeous shop with you guys. Check it all out below! Pictured: Minimalist Woven Pillow


Pictured above are some handwoven home goods by Melody Fulone. Her shop is full of unique and beautifully woven wall hangings, pillows, many other home accessories; and even a bit of fiber art jewelry. I really love the neutral colors and the modern designs.

Shop the 2018 Winter Collection. And keep an eye out for a DIY kit for a crochet wall hanging in a few weeks. Melody will also be releasing her spring collection in late March!


This next brand will go into both an unboxing as well as a Beauty Edit video and beauty review blog. I'm so honored to be working directly with Clarins to review the new Clarins SOS Primers. They've also sent some brand new shades from their 4-Color Eyeshadow Palette and Rouge Eclat Lipstick. Check out their amazing sales going on through 2/25!

 
You may recognize Lit Up Illuminations from last week's Friday Finds. These gorgeous candles will also make it into my new unboxing video, and I'll review them for you guys in the video. I'll have the pleasure of testing out the Sweet Orange & Chili Pepper Soy Candle and the Lavender Vetiver Soy Candle.


Another favorite goodie I'm going to enjoy reviewing for you guys is the new Superfood skincare line by ELEMIS. Thanks to Influenster I get to try out the Superfood Daycream and the Superfood Facial Wash. I can't wait to photograph these products with some super foods!

You can browse all of these brands in the links below. Let me know which ones you're most interested in seeing more of. And as always, have a great weekend! :)
