Makeup Lessons Contouring

Makeup Lessons Contouring.

Welcome to the first addition in our Makeup Lessons category, I remember when I first started using contouring makeup. I could not get the handle of it at all. Not to mention, a lot of the contouring kits do not come with directions or they come with directions that completely contradict what another contouring pallet will state.

Products I Use

I have compiled my techniques from various sources and will include them before so you to can become an expert at Contouring, I would also suggest attending Sephora’s contouring class, you will learn a ton and also experience some other products to find the best match for yourself.
