How to Highlight & Contour for a sexy sculpted look ♥

Hello me lovelies!

So I thought I'd show you how I highlight and contour in 4 easy - peasy steps for the super sexiest sculpted look!

As you know, I'm no pro. I'm all about easy-peasy. I've made a religion about doing what's easiest for me, takes the least amount of time, and uses the least amount of products (JUST 4 PRODUCTS). So if you like the sound of that, then you're gonna love this!

Let's Get Started!

1 - Foundation

I apply it all over my face including my eyelids. I use MAC Matchmaster foundation in NC40. Use whatever you have handy.

2 - Contour:

I suck in my cheeks until I look like a fish, and dipping my finger into a darker shade of foundation, MAC NC50 (use whatever you have as long as its 3 or 4 shades darker than your regular foundation. Bronzer works great too), I follow the shape of my cheekbones, and trace a line from under the apple of my cheek to my ear. I use the same shade to draw 2 thin lines along the sides of my nose to sculpt it, and along my jaw line. And then I BLEND LIKE MAD (seriously blend like mad) until all the dark lines are smoothed away.

3 - Highlight: 

Hahahahaaaaa how funny isn't this pic?! Using my Clinique Airbrush Concealer I draw a triangle from under each eye to the sides of my nose, a long flat triangle between my brows, a thin straight line down the centre of my nose, and another line down the centre of my chin. And then once again I blend, blend, blend.

4 - Blush: 

I like doubling up my favourite Yardley Supermoist Lipstick in Cranberry Creme, as a blush. You can use whichever blush you have. I slick some on my lips, and then draw little x's on the apples of my cheeks and .... yip you guessed it... Blend!



See...  told you it was easy! You could do this with your eyes shut!

Now go out there and wreck havoc, you super sexy sculpted goddess you!
