Highlighting and contouring are enhances your bone structure and make it look like you’re constantly under the most flattering movie lighting possible. This tutorial will show you how to use foundation, concealer, and powder to create a flawless face.
What you’ll need:
- Liquid foundation in your normal shade
- Liquid concealer or foundation one shade lighter color than your skin.
- Concealer, foundation, or powder one shade darker color than your skin.
- Setting powder
- A powder brush (a kubuki brush will do)
- A foundation brush or sponge
- A concealer brush
How to do it:
Clean and moisturize your skin, apply your primer all over your face then apply your foundation all over your face using a foundation brush or your fingers.
Blend your foundation to about midway down your neck. Making the difference between your face and neck less visible.
Mix your lighter concealer or foundation with your regular foundation using a brush or your fingers.
Using a concealer brush or your fingers, apply the lighter makeup mixture to your T-zone (the area right above your eyebrows and the spot between them, if you have one; down the center of your nose; the middle of your upper lip; and the middle of your chin), your under-eye area, and right above your cheekbones like below.
Paint a thin line with this highlighting mixture right above your jawline.
Use a brush, sponge, or your fingers to blend your makeup until there is no visible line of demarcation between the highlighter and your foundation. You want this to look seamless.
The “contour,” or darker makeup, goes on the sides of your nose, right under your cheekbones, and around your hairline (the darkest areas on the diagram above).
Blend in your contour just like you did your highlight.
Apply finishing powder to your whole face to get rid of any excess shine and set your makeup.
Add blush to your cheeks, moving upward from the apples to your temples, which are the pinkest parts indicated on the diagram above.
This will give your face a pretty glow.
Your done and good to go. Stay flawless.
