Highlighting and Contouring- BEST Makeup Secret

Posted by Sam's Makeup on November 28, 2013 at 12:30 AM

Highlighting and contouring is properly what differentiates between an average makeup artist and an EXPERT makeup artist. It creates 3-dimentional faces! It is the true modern way of applying makeup.


Overall, contouring and highlighting are just ways to make your face look thinner, if you have a round face, and make your bone structure look the way you want. It is cheating but not cheating in away and looks UH-Mazing in pictures.


If I don’t have the time, I usually contour and highlight with powders- a dark, grey toned bronzer and a shimmery highlighter. But you truly see the difference with cream contouring and highlighting. It provides that air-brushed seamless flawless time. It requires time though and it is all about blending.


My favourite makeup artist who mastered the art of contouring is the Lebanese makeup artist Samer Khouzami. Just see the transformations below and you will be amazed:
