Do We Really Need Highlighting and Contouring?

Not really!

Ever since Kim Kardashian threw this out on a selfie, women have been going crazy about this technique that creates an illusion of a balanced, glowing, radiant but sculpted face.

There are a few pros and cons about this “concept”. When we highlight, we bring forward the areas we want other people to notice by using lighter colors. We accentuate the cheekbones, brow bone, nose, cupids bow, under eye and tear ducts. When we contour we want certain areas to recede or to be hollow by using darker colors. Most women contour their nose to make it appear narrower and pointed, or to make their jawline and forehead look smaller.

high2In my opinion, this is a trick that will not work all of the time. When you contour, you tend to have a chiseled face, and only men, by nature, have chiseled faces.

You can highlight to achieve that glowing skin, but I think contouring is not necessary if you already have nice features.

It works wonders but I have to say that it should be worn in moderation. While some, can’t help to contour their nose they don’t have to push further if the rest of their face doesn’t need much precision.

Do not stop on laying the products to where they should be – blend, blend, blend, until that line softens and almost disappears.
