So you want to learn how to contour like our girl, Kim, but don't know where to start? You're in the right place. Surprisingly, it's not as difficult as it looks, and the art of contouring has been around for years. It's a behind-the-scenes technique that's typically used on models in photo shoots, but now that celebs can get their pictures snapped anywhere, looking their very best at any given time is a must!
Contouring highlights some of our best facial features - cheeks, nose, and eyes. Before you start, remember that contouring is all about building, and you have to pay attention to the order in which the products are applied (or else you'll look like a cake-y mess). Also make sure your face is freshly washed.
