Contour And Highlight Makeup Kit

Posted on

Everyone knows how important it is to have a great looking face. Contouring and highlighting are two essential makeup techniques used to help create the perfect look. Contouring and highlighting can be used to shape and define the face, enhance the natural features, provide an even skin tone, and create an overall polished appearance.

Contour and Highlight Tips

Before you start contouring, it’s important to have the right tools and techniques. Choose a contour powder or cream that is two shades darker than your natural skin tone and a highlighting powder or cream that is two shades lighter.

Once you have the right products, use a brush or beauty blender to apply the contour on the places where you wish to create a shadow. This includes the sides of your nose, the hollows of your cheeks, your forehead, and jawline. Then, apply the highlight on the areas you want to add emphasis, such as the bridge of your nose, tops of your cheekbones, brow bones, and chin.

Product Placement

When contouring, it’s important to know where to place the product for the best results. For the nose, start just to the side of your bridge, blend it down the sides, and sweep it out slightly at the end. For your cheekbones, emphasize their natural shape from the top of your ear to the middle of your cheek. For your forehead, simply sweep the product horizontally across the middle.

Blending the Products

Once the product is in place, it’s all about blending. This is the key to having a natural, yet contoured look. For the best results, use a kabuki brush, beautyblender, or other soft brush to ensure a seamless blend and an airbrushed finish. Blend out any harsh lines and make sure to evenly distribute the product.

Finishing Touches

Once your contour and highlight are blended and look natural, add a little blush and a glossy lip color to complete the look. Make sure to use a clean brush to avoid any cross-contamination of products on your face. Then, set your look with a light powder or setting spray.

Contouring and highlighting your face can be a daunting task, but it’s definitely worth the effort. With the right tools and techniques, anyone can achieve a perfect, sculpted look.
