Let’s put on some dimension!
Ever wondered how to put on your contour and highlighter? Follow these easy steps and you’re good to go!
Neutralizing darkness and minimizing the appearance of circles works perfectly with any lipstick shade from coral or orange to bright red, all depending on your skin tone. After you have blent your lipstick continue to work in your concealer.
With a Concealer or a Foundation that is 2-3 shades lighter than your skin tone you will be able to make some features stand out. Cheekbones, temples, brow bones, Cupid’s bow, bridge of the nose, apples of your cheeks and the jaw bone will be emphasized. Always keep in mind – highlighting is always where the sun would naturally hit you. Tip: to make to concealer stay in place all day and prevent it from creasing, apply any powder in that shade or a translucent one.
Contouring is the opposite of highlighting! You basecally put shadows in your face to make it look more demantional. As it is the opposite of highlighting instead of going 2-3 shades lighter you go 2-3 shades darker. If you are looking for a very natural contour colour you should use a contour powder without any glitter or a ’normal‘ face powder that is just a few shades darker that your actual skin tone.
