Highlighting And Contouring Makeup Tips

Highlighting and contouring is the best trend to try. With highlighting and contouring you can bring out your cheekbones, slim your nose, and sculpt your face. Don’t pay a professional makeup artist to try this look, you can do it yourself at home. You only need a few things: a darker powder or a bronzer, concealer and a highlighter. It’s quite easy, all you need to do is follow our tips.

– The first thing you need to do is to moisturize and prepare your skin. After your skin is moisturized, apply an appropriate foundation, the one you use on daily bases. Blend the foundation into your skin. The best way to do this is using a sponge.

– Once you’re done with your foundation it’s time to conceal. Use a concealer one shade brighter than your skin. Apply it under your eyes in a triangle shape, on your forehead, a straight line down your nose, on your chin and little on your upper lip. Get your beauty blender or a brush, and blend the concealer.


– Once everything is blended, it’s time to contour. Use a bigger brush to do this. The dark powder should be 1 or 2 shades darker than your skin color. Apply it on your nose, under your cheekbones and on your forehead, as is demonstrated on the picture. Use the beauty blender again the blend everything. Blend until there are no lines between the concealer and the contouring.

– Once everything is blended, take some light, shimmery highlighter and a small, fluffy brush and apply some between your eyes and your cheekbones.

– If you want to take this little further, you can use some neutral powder to keep everything into place.

– And there you have it, the most wanted look at the moment done in your own home.
