First of all, before beginning to contour, you’ll want to have your primer and foundation all ready on. So, to find the right shade of contour, go for a shade that is about 2-3 shades darker than your skin. You can use a cream contour, or just a bronzer. I tend to go for a nice glow, so I went with the bronzer. Apply your contour above your cheekbones, your temple area, forehead, and Jaw. You also apply the contour to your nose to give it a nice snatched looked, I recommend using a smaller brush, like an eye shadow brush. Blend it upward, using a small circular motion.
After that, you will want to take your lighter shade, about 2-3 shades lighter than your skin tone, and apply that to your T-Zone, and under your eyes to brighten it up. To clean up your contour, you can take your lighter shade, and place it under your contour on the cheekbones. This will give you a super snatched Contour.
Finally, once you have all of that in place, blend with a Beauty sponge, or a brush to create a seamless contour. For your highlighter areas, take a setting powder and set that over the lighter shade. This will really give you a super nice, intense contour without overdoing it. With your setting powder, you can bake those highlighted areas to give it a nice finish. Which means, taking heavy setting powder and letting it sit for a few minutes and brushing it off with a brush.
