I’ve actually heard this question a lot, especially since the word contouring has gotten so popular thanks to celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner. Essentially contouring is the technique of creating shadows on your face to manipulate its appearance. Highlighting on the other hand is the technique of accentuating certain aspects of your face. Like I state in this video, I am a huge advocate of loving the skin that you’re in, but at the same time, I love to play around with makeup and I try not to take this stuff too seriously. A little while back I started a beginners series of different makeup techniques and I asked you guys to let me know if there is anything that you would like to see. Highlighting, Contouring and Baking were all highly requested videos, so after recording a few other videos that I was excited to get out, I decided to make this one. Because it is a beginners video, I kept it all very natural and easy to follow along. I really hope you guys enjoy this and as always, don’t forget to subscribe to my channel!
