Contour Highlighting Collage

If there is one makeup trend that has really taken over it’s contouring and highlighting.  It’s always existed… I even studied it way back in my Cosmetology school days.  But it’s never been as popular as it is now.  I’ve actually had many requests to do a tutorial on the subject.  I thought it was a little odd because there are SO many contour/highlight makeup videos out there. I always figured, why would anyone want to hear about it from me?  

That’s when I realized that so many of the contouring/highlighting videos out there are made by girls with the same face shape, and the same look, using the exact same technique.  So many people (myself included) would copy them exactly hoping to get the same “perfect” features.  In my case (and I’m sure many others), I looked overdone and sometimes even silly.

I was contouring places that didn’t need it, and overlooking areas that did. I also highlighted with pure abandon until I looked like I’d been slapped in the face by King Midas.

That’s when I realized how important it is to customize your makeup to fit your individual face.  So here are some tips for individualizing your technique and helping us full faced girls get a slimmer look…

I didn’t contour my nose, because I just always feel overdone when I do.  But if you feel the need to contour yours, here are some videos that I think are great…

    • Thanks so much! I’ve tried a few contour kits, but I think the ABH one is the best, especially for beginners. The colors are flattering, and they’re not overly pigmented so they’re buildable.

    This is a great idea for a video as contouring really does make the face look smaller. Every time I contour, someone tells me I look great & looks like I’ve lost a few lbs. I’m like “sweet, thanks” while thinking LOL I tricked em! xx adaatude.com
