MAKEUP ARTIST SECRET - CONTOURING AND HIGHLIGHTING


Wanna learn the professional makeup artists secrets to glowing skin, high cheekbones and a chiseled nose? This tutorial will give you all the details!

I've received a lot of requests to do a full face foundation, contour and highlight tutorial and to also review the Kryolan concealer wheel that I've been using recently in my last few tutorials. So here it is! I do want to stress that this technique of contour and highlight is best suited for evening makeup looks, special events, weddings and photography. This is definitely not for an everyday makeup look. As you're going through the tutorial it may seem like a lot of steps and too much work but I think it's completely worth it, especially if your going to have pictures taken. It just brings this glow and dimension to your face compared to a one tone foundation routine which can look very flat in pics.

This method of contour and highlight has been around for a long time, but it has been made famous in the last few years by makeup artists like Kevin Aucoin and celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez. My inspiration for this tutorial is Samer Khouzami, who is a Lebanese makeup artist. I follow him on Instagram and am just amazed by his technique and ability to transform anyone to look like a model. So do check out his work @samerkhouzami.

You guys are truly my inspiration and motivation and I love connecting with you on Instagram too. Get to know me better and see more pics that I post on my INSTAGRAM @beautybybinny.
