How to create epic cheekbones using cream highlight and contour! Lots of great contour & highlight recommendations for all skintones and tips and tricks I’ve discovered to achieve chiselled bone structure that looks natural and believable ;) You could incorporate this tutorial into your prom makeup or any evening event – it pictures beautifully!
If you want to know more about contour placements for different face shapes, I thoroughly discuss this topic in my Powder Contour Tutorial.
Two things to note if you’re going for epic sharp contouring:
1) It registers better in the evening
2) Ideally, wear your hair out. The face framing layers will create natural shadows that enhance your contour (I wore my hair up so my mane didn’t interfere with the tutorial lol).
