Today I wanted to show you how I contour and highlight my face for nights out, weddings...etc. This is not something I do on a daily basis - normally I just apply some BB cream and when I feel like it some powder bronzer.
Anyways, here goes.
What I used:
- Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation Shade 100 'Ivory' - Review here
- MUA Pro-Base Concealer Kit in 'Porcelain-Beige' - Review here
- Ben Nye Banana Powder - Review here
- Essence Translucent Powder - Review here
- Ebay Concealer Palette - Review here
- MUA F2 Stippling Brush
- Fraulein 38 Foundation Brush
Start with a clean and moisturised face. Apply a light concealer using a foundation brush as pictured: on your dark circles down towards the sides of your nose in an upside down triangle, on forehead, bridge of nose, cupids bow, chin.
Apply a dark coloured foundation or dark concealer (I used the 2 darkest colours from the E-bay palette) using the same foundation brush that you used for the light concealer.
I applied mine on the hollow of my cheeks, side of my eyes, temples, jaw line, sides of nose.
It looks scary I know ^.^
When you're done, take your stippling brush, dab it into your normal foundation and start blending everything together.
This way you will achieve a flawless look but the highlighted/contoured parts will still be visible.
I then powdered my whole face using the Essence translucent powder, and I applied some Ben Nye Banana powder on my under eye. If I were applying eye shadow on, I would have left the powder there so that if I had fall outs from the eye shadow I would have quickly brushed everything off without ruining my base.
Hope you like it and found this helpful <3
