How to Highlight and Contour for Your Face Shape | Face Slimming Techniques


Using highlighting and contouring, you can manipulate the shape of your face to appear more sculptured. Contouring is all about creating shadow and light to alter the shape of the face, maybe to give the illusion of higher cheekbones, a slimmer face or shorten the nose.

Different face shapes need different contouring or shaping; some will require more highlighting while others will use more contouring to help create the shape you are after.

The first thing to decide is what is your face shape, then be guided by this diagram as to where to contour, where to highlight or maybe just use blusher.
