Description:

Jordan Liberty creates an easy spring look featuring natural contouring on Ford model Ashley Brielle. Contouring CAN be soft and subtle! Here’s all you need to know about “under-the-radar” contouring:

1. What is contouring and highlighting? From an artist’s perspective, contouring is just a form of shading, or adding DEPTH. This is why you contour areas that you want to look concave (go inward), like the lower part of the cheekbones. These deeper shadows can change the curvature of the face, add dimension, and can even transform a face completely! Think about it: a 3-dimensional object is defined by how light falls on it.

Highlighting does the opposite of contouring, it makes objects appear convex (go outward). It can also make the face look lifted and youthful, which is why many of my more mature clients are more highlight-savvy than their daughters.

2. How to choose your contour shade: as a general rule, you want your contour shade to be DARKER and COOLER than your skin tone. Because contouring is just a fancy way of creating shadows, you want to mimic the cool gray color that a shadow casts over the skin. This is why contouring products look drab and dark – and also why bronzers make such terrible contour colors. Bronzers warm the skin – we want to cool it down! Can you contour with a bronzer? Yes – but it will be much more apparent and can even make the skin look dirty.

3. How to choose a highlighter: opposite your contour shade, you have many options for highlighters. A natural highlighter will be semi-matte or luminescent and will be just LIGHTER and WARMER than your skin tone. Marilyn Monroe was known to wear solid white powder as a highlighter, and today’s celebs use luminescent golds and pinks – the sky is the limit.

4. Where to PLACE your contours and highlights: every face is different! In this video I contoured Ashley’s nose to show technique, but in real life I usually just define her cheekbones, jawline, and forehead. Try not to contour features that are already strong!

What products can you use to contour and highlight with? For this video, we used cream foundations – but in many of our videos, we use powder products. We used a darker and cooler foundation shade to contour, and a warm golden foundation shade to highlight. If you can’t find a good foundation shade to contour with, you can always mix your own! Mixing a little black pigment into a foundation will darken it and cool it down. Some other favorites are:

MakeUpForEver Contour Kits
Smashbox Step-By-Step Contouring Kit
Kevyn Aucoin Contour Powder
Smashbox “Artificial Light” Luminizing Lotions and “Halo” Wands
MakeUpForEver “Uplight”
MAC “Strobe Cream”
Smashbox “Soft Lights” Powders
Benefit “Sun Beam, High Beam,” and “Moon Beam”
