How to Contour and Highlight Your Make-Up

Have you ever wondered how models get that defined look in photos. Why the cheek bones look huge, the eyes look huge and bright. It’s because make-up artists contour and highlight the entire face.

My favorite way to apply this contour/highlight method is to use a very light foundation that is obviously too light for your skin for the highlight and a shade that is way too dark for your skin to contour. Apply the make up as shown in the picture with a foundation brush or damp sponge. After you have finished apply your perfect match foundation shade over this with a stippled brush. This allows you to blend the colors together and get a natural look without moving your highlights or contours much.

 

I love the way my skin looks after I have done this contour/highlight technique.
