Basic rules in contouring and highlighting




After watching some Beginner's make up tutorial on Youtube,i decided to try it out. It was disastrous.
Do not be like me. Read the basic rules of highlighting and contouring and with all pleasure,Paint away.

According to Beau Nelson "Contouring is giving shape to an area of the face and enhancing the facial structure through makeup". This is achieved by using two different shades of powder, cream and so on. Highlighting is basically adding light to your face.
 Things needed are your regular  foundation which is same colour as your skin tone, two other foundation (darker and lighter shades). You can use a brush or your fingers for blending.
Step 1
 Start by applying your foundation which is same colour as you skin tone.
Step 2
 Now highlight your face by applying the foundation which is two shades lighter than your skin.




This should be applied at;

•The centre of your fore head
•Along your brow lines
•Under your eyes
•The centre of your chin
•The section between the tip of your nose and the top of your lip.
•The centre of your nose
 Apply the foundation which is two shades darker than your skin. This should be applied at;

 Now you can blend them using your brush or fingers. Try to blend well so that there won't be any mark left on the face.
