♥ Contouring & Highlighting Chart +EOTD & FOTD

How to do contouring and highlighting?

Today I'm posting this FOTD and ETOD and since the highlighting and contouring in this picture showed quite well I decided to do a highlighting and contouring chart as well.


This was a look I just did to try an eye shadow palette belonging to my mum (it's in the pic below). Unfortunately the colour of the shadows was really hard to catch on camera, it's purple, not brown.



I put together this highlighting and contouring chart for you guys!

1. My FOTD with NYR bronzer for contouring and their eyeshadow hibiscus for highlighting
2. A chart of an everyday highlighting and contouring, also what I did in the first pic
3. This is heavy highlighting and contouring- cheekbones and nose are included in this.


This is all I used for my look and the CHANEL foundation I reviewed the other day!


Again, the eyeshadows are definitely Not brown, they're purple!

Do you highlight and contour your face? Have you done a post on it?

  13. Wow those highlighting/contouring pics are really helpful. I always use bronzer to contour but haven't ever tried using a highlighter (i know). Am i really missing out? If so do you know of any highlighters you'd recommend for someone with combination olive skin? My cheeks get quite dry especially in winter but nose is fairly oily.
    Loving you blog even more the more i keep scrolling btw! xx
