We are witnessing something amazing here – the contouring and highlighting makeup technique. It has the power to make huge transformations with your face, so you should be careful. Don’t get angry with people if they don’t salute you when you pass by them in the street. This makeup technique is heavy and mostly applied for night events, where the light is reduced. Another reason to apply so much makeup products on your face, is if you have a television appointment. You have to apply a lot of makeup when the camera is staring at you.
So, after we discussed the time when and when not to apply the contouring and highlighting makeup technique, we can start the step-by-step tutorial and learn how to master this makeup skill. Just follow the steps:
First of all, be sure that your face is perfectly moisturized. Apply daily, light moisturizing cream and allow it to absorb into the skin for several minutes.
After that you must apply primer. It will even out some enlarged pores and it will keep the foundation products in place.
Now use lighter than your skin complexion foundation to highlight your face. Start with the bottom of the forehead, the whole under eye area, cheeks, chin, bridge of the nose.
Here comes the contour part. Top of the forehead, cheekbones, jaw lines, the temple area near the eyes and both sides of the nose bridge.
Blend in with a sponge and remove the glossy sparkle with some powder.
Enhance the eyes, the browse and the lips and your makeup is ready, enjoy it!
