    I like the video. The lighting and editing are good and you are interesting to watch. However I don't like the extreme highlighting and contouring: 80% of your face is highlighted, 15% contoured. As a result your natural skintone is invisible and your glow is lost. Your highlighter leaves a visible yellowish cast which is not extremely flattering I think.

    Thank you for the makeup 101 video series! Very helpful ๐Ÿ™‚ I've never contoured before but thanks to your video I'll try and hopefully be good at it.

    Great informative series of videos!! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I want to try using a matte, non-shimmery powder bronzer as a contour but I can't find one dark enough for my skin. I tried the Bobbi Brown in deep 4 and my skin literally said "haha, guess again" lol.
