What You Will Need
To contour, you will need a color that is one to two shades darker than your foundation. You can use a brown eye shadow, bronzer or a darker foundation.
To highlight, you will need a color that is one to two shades lighter than your foundation. You can use a shimmery white/beige eye shadow, a lighter foundation or a highlighter.
To emphasize cheek bones, make a fish face and brush bronzer or the darkest shade of the trio underneath the bone, where the hollow starts. On the highest point of cheekbones, dust a lighter highlighting shade.
To thin the nose, use the darkest shade of the trio (or any bronzer) on both sides of the nose to streamline it and use the lightest color on the bridge of the nose. To make a nose look shorter or reduce a bump, use the darkest color side-to-side across the bump or on the tip to make it shorter
To highlight brow bones. Use any shimmer powder (anything that reflects light) above the eyebrow and right below the brow. A kabuki brush is great for sweeping shimmer right on top of the brow area – just make sure to blend really well and don’t forget to rub any excess powder off the hair.
