Highlight & Contour

The Style Prescription picks its favourite cosmetics for creating an illusion of light and shadow to enhance those cheekbones and create dimension.

Highlight & Contour

Handy tips to get started:

Highlight: Apply chosen highlighter to cheekbones, bridge of your nose and brow bone. Highlight areas where light can be reflected and apply to your favourite features to bring your best forward. To highlight we picked Benefit’s Sun Beam for those of you with medium to deep complexions, and High Beam for fair to medium.

Contour: Apply contour colour to hollow of your cheeks, nose, and jawline. Hide your less favourite features by contouring.Use a foundation or powder 2 shades darker than your skin tone.

Brushes: The right brushes are essential for creating this look.  Make sure to take a closer look at my selected picks from MAC.

Make sure to blend colours to ensure a professional seamless look.

I have also added a great video by MAC senior artists Fatima and Michelle on creating and perfecting this look.
