How-To: Contour and Highlight
Highlighting and contouring has been a popular topic in the beauty industry. From celebrities to Youtube stars, everyone seems to have tips and tricks for creating the perfectly highlighted and contoured face. With the launch of Luxe Liquid Bright Concealers we thought it was time for a step-by-step guide on contouring and highlighting featuring our lovely National Educator, Janeena Billera.
Use this photo as a guide but before you start you will need to find the shades that work for your skin tone. We recommend picking three different shades: a contour color, a light highlight color and a medium highlight/ transitional color. The contour color should be two shades darker than your natural complexion, the lightest highlight should be two shades lighter than your natural skintone and the transitional/ highlight product should be one shade lighter than your natural skintone.
Janeena has a medium skin tone so she selected Luxe Liquid Bright Concealer in brighten as the lightest highlight shade, Luxe Liquid Bright Concealer in sunburst as the highlight/transition shade, and Concealer Under Eye in honey as the darkest contour color. Using something like Concealer Under Eye works as a contour product because it has a creamy formula that will blend easily for a more natural look. Using Pressed Base or Bronze will also work just be sure to blend completely to avoid harsh lines.
