Beginners guide to contouring and highlighting
I decided to do a picture showing where one would normally contour and highlight. Bear in mind that this is just a general guideline of where to contour and highlight. It will definitely change for everybody
Think if contouring and highlighting as shading . The areas that you would want to “hide” you would contour and the areas that you would want to “bring out” you would highlight.
So one would essentially
1. The forehead
2. The sides of the nose
5. Cheeks *you will know where to contour on your cheek by making a fish face*
1. Down the brdge of the nose
2. Cupids bow
3. Center of the forehead
5. Above the Jawline
I’ve done an in depth video on contouring and highlighting. Feel free to check it out .
