Requested Video: Natural Highlighting & Contouring

Highlighting and contouring can be done a number of different ways depending on the look you are trying to achieve. For a more natural look I like to apply my highlighting and contouring concealers underneath my foundation.

For highlighting choose a concealer that is at least two shades lighter than your regular foundation. If you choose a color that is too close to your skin tone, the highlighting will be very subtle or will not show up at all.

For my highlighting I use Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer in Deep.  I like that it has a built in wand to make application quick and easy.
(If you missed it, check out how I found my favorite highlighter here.)

For contouring, I choose a color that is at least two shades darker than my regular foundation. I recently found a new product that I really like; Black Radiance Complexion Perfection Undereye Concealer in Dark. It's a warm brown that shows up nicely underneath my foundation that is easy to blend. My favorite feature is the dual ends with liquid and stick forms of the product. The wand end helps me to apply the liquid concealer with precision, while the concealer stick helps me to tackle larger areas of my face quickly.

Check out the video below to see how I apply these products to get a natural highlighted and contoured look.  Links to products used in the video are also listed below.
