The art of contouring, like any make-up look, requires some know-how and practice. Whether it’s your first time or you’re simply trying to hone your craft, here are easy guides and video tutorials to achieve that naturally sculpted look. Become an expert on how to contour and highlight the face.
Our Contour & Highlight Collection features one contouring option: the Contour Palette.
The Contour Palette is a great palette to use for easy contouring coming with three matte shades to sculpt, define and highlight.
After selecting a contour product, start with a fresh clean face and prime your skin with the Perfecting Primer. The primer extends make-up wear and smooths the skin to create an even, luminous base for make-up application.
The next step involves applying your desired foundation and/or concealer before contouring. This step is optional and dependant on what look you would like to achieve.
For an every-day look, simply apply the Sheer Glow BB Cream or a lightweight foundation such as the Luminous Sheer Liquid Foundation or Radiant Loose Powder Foundation. If you’re after a more medium-full coverage with a satin matte finish you may wish to use the Flawless Liquid Foundation and conceal any dark spots or imperfections using the Flawless Concealer.

How To Contour Using The Contour Palette
The Contour Palette has three matte shades to create depth and dimension, and is buildable from a natural finish to a deeper intensity look. For best results, we recommend using the Ultimate Perfecting Brush for application.
Once you’re happy with your look, lightly brush a finishing powder such as our Translucent Loose Finishing Powder or Mattifying Pressed Setting Powder all over the face using a Finishing Brush, focusing on the T-zone and under the eyes to finish your look and extend your make-up wear.
