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

Blogger Style: From London to Milan


I've been pleasantly surprised by the increased number of bloggers attending fashion week this year. So many of my favorite top bloggers were at NYFW this February, and most of them have continued on to London, Milan, and Paris. (The Paris street style will be in a new post next week!)

As I mentioned in the NYFW post, the fashion industry has previously speculated on whether the influence of the fashion blogger has reached its peak, or if bloggers should have a real place at fashion week at all. This fashion season has proved that influencers have gained a strong and permanent place in the world of fashion, especially when it comes to social media. Big fashion houses in fact built their campaigns around some of these bloggers. Proenza Schouler, for example, chose to debut their new fragrance at a blogger event during fashion week. And it's quite common for bigger bloggers, like Aimee Song, to go for a fitting to pick out a piece from a designer's showroom prior to attending their show.

It's become quite clear to designers that these influencers are the new industry leaders in setting the trends. I does make me wonder where the world of editorial fashion and media is headed. Though for now, it makes for an incredibly beautiful Instagram feed during fashion week! Let me know which look are your favorite, in the comments below! Pictured above: @margoandme
