Tutorial – Contour & Highlighting the Face

You need the following tools for contouring: a contour brush (use Devezin Cosmetics #16) and a contour color (use Devezin Cosmetics Enriched Highlighting Bronzer). An angled powder brush can usually double as a contouring brush, just like you can make your choice in the color you want to use to contour. In general, Its safe to use a color that is darker than your normal skin tone. Contouring adds shadows to your face to create more dimension (carving the cheeks or accenting the cheekbones, thinning out the nose, etc. Contouring is really pretty easy, so long as you place the contour line in the right position, and it is quite simple to find that right area. You need to make a “fishy” face, which is when you suck in your cheeks as much as you can. You can see/feel the hollow it creates below your cheek! Using your contour brush, pick up your contour color, and apply along the hollow created by the fish-face.The brush should fit nicely into the hollow of your cheeks, and you simply guide it upwards alongside the hollow/curve. Follow your natural curve, which resembles the same angle/line of the jaw. See[pic] is what the finished product looks like, and of course, you need to blend this out around the middle of the ear.
