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

KCL Friday Finds


Happy Friday! I'm doing things a bit differently this week, as our whole family got hit with a yucky flu last weekend. I spent less time this week finding new shops to feature and more time recovering and catching up on the Mother's Day Giveaway. If you've yet to pick up a Mother's Day gift, however, today's Friday Finds is for you! I'm rounding up some last-minute ideas.

The first one is an incredible deal!! You can go to any florist shop or grocery store for a last-minute bouquet, but this 20 Stem Tulip Bouquet for $10 via Whole Foods is too good to pass up. Simply click that link for the coupon code, which you can redeem in-stores.


And thanks to Amazon Prime shipping, it's not too late to order something online if you shop today! It is too late for personalized gifts and most of the gourmet gifts online, but you can pick from any number of pretty fashion or beauty gifts and have it delivered by tomorrow.

Though I always say the gift of shopping is the best gift of all. Some say a gift card is impersonal and bad etiquette, but let's face it, who doesn't love to get cash or a gift card? You can pick from the Printable at Home Amazon Gift Cards  or the Amazon eGift Cards.

I hope you all have a very lovely weekend and a Happy Mother's Day!
