Highlighting and contouring is a technique used to create an illusion of a slimmer face, a straighter more refined nose, higher more pronounced cheekbones…etc the possibilities are pretty much endless. There is a fine line between enhancing and completely changing your entire face.
To Highlight and Contour you can use a cream or powder base. I love using cream products, however I have an oily complexion so I always use a powder to set it. If your skin type is more on the dry side you can use a cream base and it will give you a gorgeous natural look. Key to getting this technique done correctly is blending, basically there’s no rushing allowed.
