Contour Your Face

If you're on Pinterest (follow me!!) then you have probably seen all of the hype around "contouring" with makeup. Well, it's the hot trend...It's the process behind most celebrity's makeup. You can really get into it (we're talking crazy detailed and tons of makeup) but I take the tips lightly and apply it to my everyday makeup routine. 

Contour Diagram. The white is where you are supposed to apply highlighter (Nars Albatross/YSL Touche Eclat) and the brown is where to apply bronzer (Tarte Amazonian Clay). This is why supermodels have such pronounced cheek bones/etc... well that, and they are supermodels. There are a ton of YouTube tutorials on how to apply the highlight/contour areas.... this is a pretty good one. I think that this is a serious way to apply your make up and it is definitely not for everyday but it's fun to play around with and a useful theory for your everyday makeup application. Mine is so quick and easy, I just dust my highlighter and bronzer in the proper areas. 

So what do you think? Do you practice this method? Have you ever gone all out and tried it with full makeup? Do you just think this is silly? Have a fabulous day!
