How To | Highlight & Contour with Powder

July 8, 2014

Well hasn't it been ages since we did a little beauty tutorial?! I thought so too and wanted to share what I've been doing recently for my routine. As you'll see in the video, I haven't changed much because I feel like I have a great routine in place, I've also updated my highlighting & contouring to be done with powder. It's a little quicker process and something that I tend to like the outcome of better so enjoy!

  1. Okay I am totally not a makeup person and now that I am a mom I have about 2 seconds to get ready but I was so excited to watch this. I am going to order the palette and try out your tutorial! I've never used concealer, do you think it would be OK if I didn'? I use a cream to powder foundation, bronzer, and blush.

  2. I need to pick up a concealer brush asap. I been using my fingers...probably not the best, huh?

  3. Thank you so much for this tutorial! You're tutorials always seem to help me the most. I'm thinking about picking up some more brushes, I usually go with elf, unless I'm asking for birthday/Christmas ;)

  4. LOVE this! Every contouring/highlighting video I've seen shows entirely too many steps/products. This is great. Thanks for sharing with us, sister!

  5. Thank you for giving a palette option for highlighting/contouring that is a reasonable price! I went to the website just to check the price of the palette assuming it was pricey and was so excited it wasn't!Thanks again!
