Highlighting and contouring is the current craze in the make up world. I world personally like to thank whoever came up with this great technique. Make-up has never looked so good since highlighting and contouring came to town.

What exactly is highlighting and contouring?

Highlighting is to create artificial light to your nose bridge, cupid’s bow, cheek bones, and eyebrows.You use a concealor or light foundation and put it on places of your face that you want to highlight. Most people put it below their eyes, on the nose to the head and on the chin

Contouring is to create an illusion of a shadow around your temples, jaw line, nose, and cheek bones to accentuate your bone structure and slim down your face & nose. This is perfect for when you want to add more definition to your face.

The lighter areas are highlighting points. The darker areas are contouring points. The pink if you can see it is where you would apply your blush.
