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…

Two Summer Date Outfits


I'll admit, I'm much more a fan of Fall fashion, and the weather that comes with it. However Summer is officially upon us, so I will embrace it temporarily. I do love a great summer dress and sandals. And I absolutely love straw tote bags!

I know the top trend this season is the straw circle bag, but I wanted something a little different. This Straw Handbag With Fringed Flap and Shoulder Strap is so cute and comes in two different colors. I couldn't pick between the colors, so I just went ahead and got both! The top handle and gold-tone detailing on this Summer bag make it too chic to be a beach bag but just right for a Summer date night outfit.


The handbag with white trim is perfect for a dressy Summer date look. I paired it with one of my favorite dresses. I wore this striped dress on my second date with my husband. It has a cutout in the back and I still remember how it felt when he put his hand on my back as we went into our movie that night. Whether you have a hot date planned or perhaps a wedding to attend, this bag is the perfect addition to any Summer dress.

Now that we're married, I'll admit, I do dress more casually on dates. A pair of skinny jeans and one of my favorite boho-chic tops is my go-to for Summer dates. The version of this bag with two-toned blue trim looks so great with this look, as you can see above.

The blue straw bag would be just as great with a dressy look if you, for instance, were wearing a white summer dress or a white jumpsuit. Though I definitely prefer the more comfortable casual look most of the time.
