I will be showing how I highlight & contour on myself. I normally use Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour kit (powder), City colors contour kit,or the more affordable brand that I love the most is L.A. girls pro concealer for highlight in “fawn” and contour in “toast”.
Beauty blender – pat up and down (dampened by running under water for 10 seconds) where you highlighted(lighter shades of concealer) and contoured (darker area’s of face) pressing into skin as you pat up & down, until blended with no harsh lines. (duo fiber brush if you don’t like beauty blender).
Lastly you want to set all of these area’s so they do not move from sweat or rubbing.
You use a setting powder on highlighted area’s. Examples – ben nye banana powder (other colors are available if you want a different color), you can use Laura Mercier Loose setting powders translucent, Anastasia Banana powder, Nars translucent powder, and many more that you can choose from.( flat brush or big fluffy brush for highlighting or any brush of your choice.)
Contouring (darker area’s) you can set these with regular powders that match the darker shade you used. Examples – some use bronzer’s for more natural look, Mac mineralized skin finish in darker shade, City colors contour kit, Anastasia contour kit, too faced cocoa contour kit, and many more. ( duo fiber brush, angled contour brush, or brush of your choice).
