If there’s one thing I absolutely love about make up and the application of make up, it’s the contour and highlighting stage. I am a bit of a sucker for any highlight, whether they be drugstore or high end, I just think a well highlighted face looks so dewy and natural- if you apply it right that is.
When it comes the contour, I am all about this sleek palette, it is the perfect bronzed brown colour that sits perfectly in the hollows of your cheeks to give your cheek bones that model look without breaking the bank. I use my real techniques contour brush to apply the power, which is an amazing brush for contouring as it has a small rounded shape so you can easily reach the hollows without going overboard. I apply this to the hollows of my cheeks, my temples, down the sides of my nose and on my Jaw line, this just gives a lovely chiselled finish, however be sure not to apply to much as its never good when it actually looks like you have contoured the shit out of your face.
For the highlight I used my high beam from benefit, which I am obsessed with ATM, I usually tend to go for liquid or cream highlight as opposed to a powder as I think this gives you a more natural and dewy finish and doesn’t look too heavy on the skin. I apply this product on the tops of my cheeks, the centre of my nose, my brow bone and my cupid’s bow to lift my face and give me a healthy glow even if I’m not feeling tip-top.
In my opinion, skipping contour and highlighting in your routine is a crime to makeup- its so quick and easy and does amazing things to the shape and look of your face, and you don’t have to be a kimmy k expert either, a simple drugstore contour powder and highlight will do, mind you, I do recommend this brush, its amazing!
