Contouring and Highlighting 101

Contouring and highlighting is one of the oldest methods in the makeup industry. Yet contouring and highlighting is one of the most frequently
left out steps in makeup applications. Contouring and highlighting creates a sense of balance, adding definition to your makeup with color. Contrary to belief, contouring is always some shade of brown. Never use shades of makeup such as pink, plum etc. Use a shade that is similar to your skin tone, tan is the most preferred colour for contouring. We advise you use contouring and highlighting to create the illusion of larger eyes, slimmed down nose and sculpted cheek bones without spending an insane amount of money for going under the knife. Here is a video tutorial on contouring and highlighting.
