Contouring make-up: Tips on contouring make-up


One of the best ways to add structure to your face is to use highlighting to maximum effect.

Make-up artist Emily Rose says: "When we apply our foundation our skin tones become flat because it is all one shade. We need to bring highlights and shadowing back into our complexion in order to emphasize our features.

"Before you apply your foundation, apply a cream highlighter along the tops of your cheeks bones towards your temples, in the center of your forehead down the center of your nose and slightly over your chin to highlight your features and to give your skin a dewy, healthy glow."
