I love this first tutorial because it shows it shows a human face and labels which proucts to use on which spots. In this case BR stands for bronzer, HF for highlighting, and BL for Blush.
This one is color coded and so simple! The darkest color is bronzer, the lighter taupe highlighting, and pink is for your blush.
We all different face shapes which means we all require different contouring. This tutorial shows three different ways to contouring and highlight!
Did you know?
- Always avoid shimmery products for contouring. Contours are meant to be matte, while highlights is meant to have shimmer. Texture is key.
- A lot of people contour with their bronzer, but only those with tan skin should.You need to find something that creates the illusion of an actual shadow, which typically has tones of beige, brown, taupe, and grey.
- If you're using powders to contour, you'll get a more matte finish. If you use creams, the result will be more dewy. It's best for beginners to start with creamy products, since they're easy to blend and build.
