If you've been following me on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, you would've seen the picture below of the different stages I take to highlight/contour my face. In this post I will be explaining the process in more detail, as well as the products that I use.
DISCLAIMER: I use the word BLEND like a million times in this post lol.....for good reason though because it is the key to highlighting/contouring
* Black Opal Stick Foundation (Kalahari Sand, Truly Topaz, Black Walnut)
* MAC MSF Natural (Deep)
* CoverGirl Ebony Bronze bronzer
* Angled face brush
* Cosmetic Sponge
* All over Face brush
- Take Kalahari Sand (highlight color) and apply it to the center of your forehead, under your eyes, down the bridge of your nose, and on your chin as shown in the picture above.
- Take a cosmetic sponge and start blending into your skin, making sure that you have fully blended the edges so there's no harsh line.
- Take Black Walnut (contour color) and apply to the forehead, under cheek bones, along the sides of your nose. You can also apply it to the jaw line, but I don't really do that
- Take the cosmetic sponge and blend into the skin close to the highlight that you just blended. Make sure you really take your time when blending so there's a seamless transition between the highlight and contour.
- In the areas that I did not highlight/contour, I applied Truly Topaz (this is the shade that matches my skin perfectly, you can choose a foundation that matches your skin for this step) and again I blended everything being careful not to overlap the colors.
- Take CoverGirl Ebony Bronze bronzer on an angled face brush and apply that over the places where you placed the contour foundation. Take Ben Nye Banana Powder and apply that to the places you highlighted.
- To blend everything out I use my MAC MSF Natural "Deep" and apply that all over . Once you have finished blending everything you should have the most chiseled face of them all lol
Until next post dolls!!!
