Contouring is a difficult process that I’m still learning to perfect myself. One side is always too dark, too light, too whatever, and it’s hard to master the process! Chelsea Crockett - Smashbox TrioSmashbox has come out with a much easier way to successfully contour… So, for those of you that want a quick and easy process, follow this three step guide.

To start out, you’ll need to purchase Smashbox’s Step-by-Step Contour Stick Trio pictured on the left. This product includes three different makeup sticks: the contour, the highlighter, and the bronzer. The main focus of this trio is to shape and define your jawline, nose, and of course, cheekbones. The contour stick adds the shaping feature to your face while the highlight stick brings brightness to the area. Chelsea Crockett - ContourThe bronzer works to blend the two together to create the perfect blended contour!

Once you’ve bought the set, you’re ready to begin! Depending on your skin tone and face structure, you’ll have to play around with where and how much you’ll apply to your skin. Add the contour stick to the areas shown on the picture to the right. Then apply the highlight stick to the areas above the cheekbones. Finish by blending the two together with the bronze stick!

Smashbox considers this trio one of their favorites because it “mimics perfect lighting.” So… what are you waiting for?!

Are you into the “rustic” look? Do you want to make your house look a little more like fall? Are you looking for some simple Thanksgiving decorations? Then read on! Today I am going to teach you how to make some classy, rustic decorations that will spruce up any Thanksgiving décor. If you are artsy or crafty, then you will love this fall themed DIY. It is super easy and practically free!

What you will need:

–          A glass container of some sort. You can even use the old glass from a candle.

–          Any kind of twigs or sticks. Go to your back yard or a park and collect sticks of any shape or size.7adbb978e7e47463f323e766f3b987af

Make sure that your glass container is clean and dry, or the glue will not stick. Cut the sticks so they are at assorted lengths. You can clean the sticks a bit so that the dirt doesn’t keep the twigs from sticking to the glue. Use hot glue to stick the twigs to the glass in a vertical fashion. Alternate the twig lengths and sizes so that it looks more natural. Once you have finished, you can use the decorations as candle holders, or you can just set them around your house to give it a more rustic, fall themed.

Happy fall!

XOXO, Chels
