Steps on Highlight and Contour.

Hey Beauties,

Highlighting and contouring the facial feature is a technique used to enhance some facial feature.Although I personally believe that this technique is not an everyday application , i have seen a lot of ladies make the mistake of highlighting and contouring everyday.

See simple step by step photo below:



1.Highlight the bridge of the nose, forehead, under eyes and Chin with 2 shades lighter foundation.

2.Contour the corners of the Nose, Hairline,Cheeks and Jawline with a shade darker foundation.


3.Blend with a beauty blender to give an even tone


4. Apply powder shade according to how you have highlighted and contoured(lighter and darker shade of powder)



I hope this helps, if you need further clarification kindly let me know.

    • hi Lisa, For oily skin stick with oil free,face cream, foundation and powder.Also for a flawless finish, if you have a great skin use just foundation and concealer when you have to cover spots and black patches.
