Contouring is when you use a matte (read: not shimmery) powder, cream, or pencil product that’s two shades darker than your skin tone to shade areas you’d like to define or reshape, like your nose, forehead, chin, and cheekbones. The NARs brush I used is below, I also used the Benefit Hoola Bronzer. Highlighting (or strobing) offsets contouring by accentuating areas of your face with light concealer or highlighter. To properly highlight or strobe, use a concealer that’s two shades lighter than your skin tone or a highlighter that flatters your complexion to emphasize the areas of your face that naturally catch the light. Even beginners can learn how to contour!


Thank you so much for watching! xoxo

    You know what I have to say thank you I have been looking through Contour videos for the past oh hell I'm going to say month trying to figure out how to do this and honestly I haven't put a lot of effort and work into it because every time I've tried it it's miserably failed after watching your video and doing it your way it actually turned out decent I just wish that you had added like how to Contour the nose in there because mine does need a little contouring I'm kind of curious to how you would do your nose I'm guessing the same way so I'm going to go ahead and try it but I wanted to say thank you because your video was simple was to the point and easy and I didn't use the brush that you used I used a well a little cheap brush that came with one of my kids but it was pretty much the same style it was long and thin
