30 Plus Contouring and Highlighting Tutorial

I have spoken before about my love of contouring and highlighting. After reading my last contouring post, quite a few people emailed me and asked for a contouring and highlighting tutorial video. Now, I’m no makeup artist, or TV presenter, but I love you guys enough to jump infront of the camera and share my contouring and highlighting routine.

30 Plus Contouring and Highlighting Tutorial

Initially, I was scared to start contouring, because I didn’t really understand how or why. Now I love it, it just adds a little shape and life back to your face after foundation and concealer takes it away. I’m mainly using L’Oreal products in this tutorial because they are easy to locate and so affordable.

Easy hey!
