Highlighting and Contouring


I have been working on this post for quite a while now. I just couldn't figure out how to exactly teach this to you in the best way. SO this is what I could do to explain it in the best way.


The whole point to highlight and contour your face is to enhance and really bring out the features of your face. If done correctly, it can change the way your face looks! 
These days it is very popular amongst all the ladies I know, and I had a few requests to teach them how to contour, so here ya go girls! Just please excuse my horrible picture editing skills :P

Lets start:

1) In the picture below I am showing you how and where to contour



*A very common mistake that people do while using a bronzer is that they get a very dark shade. Get a shade that is matte, and just a shade or two darker than your skin tone.
*You can always build up the bronzer if you feel it's too light and doesn't show.

2) After contouring your face with a bronzer, move on to highlighting your face.



* To highlight your face, I like to use a very subtle highlighter.
* Focus on the centre of your face. It really brings out those features.

I hope this helped! Do comment below if you like it! :)

    1. I normally love bronzers that are powdery as it doesn't really give a harsh look, just a subtle hint of shade which looks natural and lovely!
      Currently I use Essence's Compact Bronzing powder in matt :)
