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…

My Anti-Aging Skincare Routine


There are several things I look for in a great skincare line, from brightening to blemish-fighting to firming. Though lately my biggest skin issue has been my deep wrinkles under my eyes and around my laugh lines. I've enjoyed some really great brightening and antioxidant-rich products this year, but I've been in need of a more effective wrinkle-fighting skincare brand.

Honestly guys, I'm nearing 40 years old. When I was closer to 30, all it would take is a week of some retinol cream, and I'd look ten years younger. But now I'm finding it's a lot harder make those deep wrinkles go away. I've had some success recently with a combination of peptides, botanicals, hyaluronic serum; and most of all consistency, with these incredible products from LHB Natural Skincare.


My absolute must-have item from LHB is the Mature Skin Serum, made with a marine botanical called Antarcticine. This powerhouse anti-aging ingredient stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin, which helps restructure the skin to leave it looking smoother while decreasing wrinkle depth. I have to say, I've seen a noticeable decrease in deep wrinkles on my face and neck after just a few weeks of using the Mature Skin Serum. This product is also loaded with hyaluronic acid and various botanicals that really help to deliver a large amount of moisture without being harsh or too heavy. You can check out the product description to learn more on the ingredients, including the "Magic 7 Botanical Extracts" in the Mature Skin Serum.


Now, if you don't struggle with deep wrinkles just yet, I'd suggest you focus on a great face wash and day cream. The Coconut & Sea Clay Mineral Face Wash by LHB has been such a treat for my skin! I highly suggest it for any skin type, but every time I use it, I can't help but think how perfect it would be for someone...well, much younger than me. If, for example, you have 20-year old skin and you really just need a great daily face wash that isn't harsh but will remove all of your makeup, this is the one to try! The clay absorbs all of the dirt, sweat, and makeup; while the coconut oil leaves just the right amount of moisture. If I still had my 20-something year old skin, I'd use this coconut oil face wash in the morning and just finish off my look with some sunscreen and tinted moisturizer for a beautiful, fresh glow.
