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.
Easy?

So one would essentially

Contour

1. The forehead
2. The sides of the nose
3. Jawline
4. Temples
5. Cheeks *you will know where to contour on your cheek by making a fish face*

Highlight

1. Down the brdge of the nose
2. Cupids bow
3. Center of the forehead
4. Cheekbone
5. Above the Jawline

Easy ?

 

I’ve done an in depth video on contouring and highlighting. Feel free to check it out .

DIOR STAR FOUNDATION

So I’ve been following the gorgeous HUDABEAUTY for really  long time and I’ve always always seen her rave about the DIOR STAR Foundation. I decided to take the leap of faith and I purchased the DIOR STAR Foundation 040, which is a little too dark for me. I would be fine for me before  my delivery , but after my delivery I hardly ever go out in the sun and I’ve lost my color so to say. The foundation as such is a charm. It goes on super easy and it lasted me for almost 6 hours without having to powder. If you guys know me then you would know that I’m a grease ball. This foundation did a pretty good job at keeping me less oily.

So here is what I did, I used the grafotiban warm palette to highlight and contour. I blended that using a damp beauty blender and on top of that to make sure everything was seamless, I used the DIOR STAR Foundation with a stippling brush.

Kat von d Lock it tattoo and L’Oreal true match

 

Its been sooo long since I posted anything on my website . Well for starters I’m a full time mom and in all honesty I haven’t found any time .

I may not have much time to record videos, but I certainly do have time to try out products. I have always had a tough time finding the right foundation for me ( in terms of color matching ). But NOT ANYMORE. I have found the perfect mix of foundations that work great for me .

A little back ground about my color, I’m a mix of MAC NC30 and NC 35 in studio fix fluid which makes finding the right shade a little hard for me .

I came across KAT VON D Lock it Tattoo foundation while I was pregnant and I ended up buying the shade medium 54 in the hope that it would match. But But But, It was at least 2 shades dark for me .

As usual I ended up forgetting about it .

Fast forward to date . I bought the Loreal True match in the shade w3, which was 2 shades lighter for me and I suddenly had a light bulb moment where I thought about mixing the two foundations. To my surprise it was a perfect blend .

You can see in the picture below what Im taking about

Banana Peel for Acne

 

Its a proven fact that Banana Peel works for treating Acne and Acne scars. Eat the Banana, save the peel. Make sure the peel is yellow/black. Its most effective when its yellow/black. Darker the peel, better its effect.

Method:

Rub the inside of the peel on the effected areas for 10 minutes and leave it on for a few hours, before washing off the face. You can do it as many as times as you see fit during the day.

Use it every day. After one day, you should see some improvements. When acne is not red and instead is nearly the color of your skin, the infection is weakened and cannot grow anymore.

Lipstick of the Week Estee Lauder Candy Shimmer

I got this lipstick when I was foundation shopping. Its a really really pretty pink with silver shimmer, which is not too over powering. It looks good on my Indian (Mac foundation reference NC 30) skin. In all honesty I’ve never worn the lipstick for more than a few hours (2-3 hours max). But feeling the texture, I’m guessing it wouldn’t last that long . With that being said, Its a really pretty color and I’m currently obsessing over it.

Illamasqua Scandal lipstick swatch

Lipstick of the week : Scandal by Illamasqua

Ok so I’ve been obsessing over this Lipstick . Its “Scandal” by Illamasqua. 

In this pictures, I’ve very so lightly outlined my lips with “Soar” by mac, the lipstick is Scandal by Illamasqua

Before applying anything , I moisturized my lips with Vaseline.  The glossiness in this picture is because of the Vaseline.

Scandal is a matte lipstick, but I think you can play around with the finish ( just like I did ).

Review:

I love love love this lipstick. This is the second time I’ve bought this lipstick and its awesome.

The longevity of this lipstick is great. I have worn it for a maximum of 6 hours and not once did I have to re apply.

Price: AED 120

Fall is here, well almost. For me Fall/Autumn is all about dark lips. And by that I don’t mean red lips( Red also screams Fall for me ) , I mean Vampy lips. I’ve been drooling over this lipstick from Wet and Wild. Its amazingly smooth to apply. Looks vampish , which for me screams Fall/Autumn . In Dubai, we don’t really have fall. We like to think that we do.  So this post is in that essence 🙂
