How to Highlight and Contour Your Face
Learn how to make your features stand out by highlighting and contouring.
Follow these three steps to contour and highlight for a naturally radiant look. Use a non-oil based primer to prep the face for foundation. Apply concealer underneath the eye to hide any dark circles or spots. Next, find the contours of your face by making a fish face. Take your brush which should be a few shapes lighter than your skin tone and use the angled blush brush to contour beneath your cheek bones in a circular motion. Then use your highlighting powder to enhance your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, your forehead and chin. Finish it off by using a smaller brush to highlight just beneath your brow. Look at all that depth and shine.
