To show us how powder and liquid products work to contour and highlight, MAC Senior makeup artist Victor C and his partner Dana did two separate demonstrations on our gorgeous models, Angela and Christina.
I am sure most of you have heard of the concept of contouring and highlighting. Sure it may sound simple but when it comes down to actually doing it, it takes a lot more than just practice, which is why I attended my first MAC Pro Master Class, Sculpting The Face, by MAC senior makeup artist Victor Cembellin, to freshen up my skills and to pick up new tips.
Victor defines contouring as “using the principles of light and dark to create/enhance dimension”. Light colors will highlight features, make larger, emphasize and make more prominent, whereas dark colors will shade, create shadow, minimize, reduce/recede features and create the illusion of depth.
Areas To Contour:
* Under the cheekbones
* Jaw line
* Sides of the nose
* Socket of the eye/crease
* Sides of the forehead
* Contours of the body
Areas To Highlight
* Bridge of nose
* Center of the forehead
* High cheekbones
* Under the eyes
* Eyelid/ Brow bone
* Back of the jaw
* Highlights on the body
Below are some of the key tips from Victor:
What is the one look you can wear even if you went from wavy blonde curls to pin-straight brunette hair like our duchess Fergie? Coral makeup!
Wearing hues of soft peaches and corals not only gives off a sweet, youthful look, but it goes well with all skin tones and hair color and it is great all year round (peach can perk up a dull complexion like no other)!
Bollywood actresses are definitely some of the most *beautiful* women on earth. Not only do they have great features, their makeup and hair are always perfect! Read on for tips on how to nail the look.
