How To Use Foundation for Highlighting & Contouring

Highlighting and contouring is a step that intimidates and scares many where makeup is concerned. Especially since most people associate highlighting with shimmery, frosted products and contouring with dark brown products.  And lets be honest... Like I've said a million times before, we've all seen the tutorials that make it look like rocket science. Or that make it seem like you have to draw a small feathery masterpiece on your face before you blend it all out anyway. Blending... How much is too much? ... How dark is too dark? ...
Scared yet?
Seriously, it's not that intense and you don't have to be a pro to flatter your face with a bit of highlighting and contouring action. Best part? If you wear foundation and concealer, you probably already have everything you need for this easy tutorial.
The idea is to apply your foundation in a way that highlights and contours, rather than adding extra steps and extra products specifically made for sculpting your face.
Highlighting and contouring is all about emphasizing your best features and flattering your face.
