Step by Step guide to Highlighting and Contouring

Hey Lovelies!

Okay so you know how everyone thinks that highlighting and contouring is hard? Well ... that's just plain not true. You could do it with your eyes closed!

Honestly it's super simple and once you have the right products (you only need 3 - a Foundation about 3 shades darker than your skin colour/ Bronzer, a Highlighter & a Blush) then this must-know makeup technique becomes a walk in the park. Seriously, if I can do it, then you definitely can too.

See the diagram below? All you have to do is follow it and apply the products as shown. It's as simple as that... sort of like colouring by numbers!

STEP 1: Apply your dark foundation/ bronzer to the brown areas;

STEP 2: Next apply your highlighter (I dab it on with my fingers) to all the yellow areas;

STEP 3: Then apply your blush to the pink bits.

Finally get out your big fluffy blending brush and BLEND BLEND BLEND!

Honestly, this (the blending, that is) is THE most important step when it comes to highlighting and contouring. You need to keep blending until you can't see any lines or where one colour starts or the other stops.

And watch those sculpted cheekbones emerge.

Look at you ... you're a Brazilian goddess!

So....what do you think? Think you can do it? You KNOW you can! Go on, get sculpting and have fun with it.

Until next time, Love ya lovelies!
