Highlighting and Contouring [Kim Kardashian Style]

Dear readers,

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.







Finished look:




Hope you like it and found this helpful <3

Love,

Lorraine
