I've only been contouring my face for the past few months, and mainly only do it when I'm filming or taking photos for the blog (which is often. . .so I guess I contour my face quite often!). It's a great way to add color and depth to an otherwise "flat" one-color face.
This is my guide to a quick contour. There are so many other great resources for more detailed and in depth contouring guides, so I recommend your search " face contouring" in the pinterest search function. or click here!
However, for the very basics and about a 30 second quick contour, follow the steps below!
*I'm a little heavy-handed with my products just to ensure you can see the placement on my face. Don't feel like you need to add more product to contour, simply the right amount in the right location.
*lip color is Revlon "Pink in the Afternoon", earrings: Elisabeth Ashlie, nail polish: Essie's Midnight Cami, top: The Loft.
See what a difference the highlighter makes? And in person--it definitely brightens up your face! It's a great way to transfer the summer glow into a season appropriate glow.
My guess is you already have blush and bronzer, so if you want to test out this method right away, use some light eye shadow in place of the Bare Minerals highlighter. If you like the look, definitely invest in the highlighter!
