How to Highlight and Contour Your Face

Make cheekbones pop, decrease dark circles, and bring light to your face with these three easy tips. The trick is to make it look natural, like your face is lit from within.

Prep your face with a makeup primer, which will keep your makeup looking fresh all day. Next, apply concealer under the eyes to hide dark circles. Then make a fish face to find the contour of your cheeks. Use an angled brush to sweep blush in a circular motion along the hallows of your cheeks. Highlight your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, forehead, and chin. Finally, accentuate your brow bone by brushing the highlighting powder just under your eyebrows. Finish the look with a smile, and let your natural radiance shine!
