Hey guys! Many of you have been asking what I used on my last facebook and instagram post of the "Highlight/Contour" face. I have listed the products below, but you can definitely use and work with what you have as well. There is no one way of doing this. A lot of times, I use powders instead of creams, such as the MakeupForever contour palettes which I love. But if you are looking for a more dramatic contouring look such as the "Kim Kardashian" look...creams or liquids would be best. In the photo above, I have used ERA Classified foundations. As most of you know, I have been using this foundation for YEARS! I am obsessed with it and cannot find anything else that will beat this product. I first got introduced to it at Naimies when I was working there about 9 years ago and have been using it religiously since then. The reason I love it is because it has buildable coverage, it's not heavy or cakey, covers great and looks flawless! In the photo above, my model is "Y5" in ERA terms. For her highlight, I have used "Y1" and for her contour, I have used "R8". So depending on the skintone you are, you may need to go even lighter or darker with your highlighting and contouring colors. First put on your skintone foundation all over your face and then streak your face with the hightlight and contour. The secret into blending it all together flawlessly is none other than the Beauty Blender. I am obsessed with the Beauty Blender. I honestly don't know how I was working without it before. Lastly, I used the Ben Nye Banana Visage with a powder puff to set everything in. The banana powder brings it all together and gives the face a brightness due to the yellow tone. Proceed with the rest of your face or just pop some blush and lashes and you are good to go! When your skin looks so flawless, you don't need much of anything else on your face to look "done". You can purchase the foundation from my studio at Lilit's Makeup Studio in Sherman Oaks. Give us a call at (818)386-6560. Hope you guys enjoyed the post! Let me know if you guys have any questions or comments. Thank you :)
