Tuesday's Tips & Tricks

Highlighting and contouring, sounds intimidating, no? Just thinking of it conjures crazy photos of a Kim Kardashian make-up tutorial. But it doesn't have to be that way!

I know this still looks intimidating, but hear me out. To contour and highlight you actually don't need to wear more make-up, it's about being strategic about where and how you apply it. You also don't need all kinds of crazy contouring creams, you really just need a good bronzer, and good concealer, and a nice highlighter. Start with your primer and tinted moisturizer or foundation as usual, now it's concealer time. Apply concealer under the eyes, along the outside of your nose, in the center of the forehead, and chin. Dust on a little translucent powder to set everything in place.

At this point I like to add a little blush to keep things from looking too harsh. Now for the bronzer, sweep some down the hollows of your cheeks, along the hair and jaw lines, you can even go as far as to dust your neck and outline your collarbone. Take a thin brush and draw a thin line down the sides of your nose. Now take a big fluffy brush and blend everything well, you don't want any visible lines. Finish with highlighter, a little bit of shimmer on the bridge of your nose, in the corners of your eyes, on you cupid's bow, and along your cheek bones will do wonders.  Do your eyes and brows as usual.

Boom! That wasn't so hard, now was it?
