The Magical Contouring Technique

So have I ever mentioned makeup is basically magic? No? Well it is.
In my highlighting video, I showed you guys how to accent and shape features of your face and add a healthy glow by applying lighter shades to certain areas. Well, the technique of contouring allows you to sort of sculpt your face by adding a darker shade to areas of the face that you wish to recede. With contouring, you can add the appearance of more pronounced cheekbones to a round face, slim your nose, even hide a double chin. Seriously.
Sound confusing? It's really simple and easy, I promise.
Follow my steps in the video below and you'll be a pro in no time.

Oh and don't forget to check out Sigma Beauty for my absolute must-have contouring brush, the F05, that I mentioned in the video.

xoxo,
Tiffany

  5. Thank you for the video!
    Conturing is an interesting topic and not so easy to do. I know where I have to put on the powder but your video was helpful for me, nevertheless.
    Now, I'm looking your video about highlighting which I missed last time.
    I hope my english is not so bad. I'm a german girl;)

  11. Great job! I'm a huge advocate for highlighting and contouring. It really makes a difference in your look. It's especially powerful in photoshoots. I know some people are afraid of contouring, but it doesn't have to make you look like a drag queen if you do it right. It can be done everyday in a soft way.

  16. Hey Tiffany!

    I am purchasing the Sigma F05 brush, but I was also wondering what you think their best brush is for applying color to the eye crease and also their overall best blush brush. Thanks!

  17. Tiffany, would you mind to write the name of the two mac blushes you tell to substitute the one who comes with the highlighter?
    brazilian girls would be thanked :))
