Highlighting and Contouring Diagram

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
So I'm a little ashamed to admit that I watch Martha with my mom in the mornings. Today she had her make-up artist Eva Scrivo with highlighting tips to make your face appear thinner. Well I knew I needed to pay attention because I love to play with eye shadow and color but I'm a little dumbstruck when it comes to accentuating bone structure. I'm posting the chart she provided here for those of us who might want to give it a go.
Hugs,
Me

Im reposting the video link here in the first post because I think it might be geting lost in the comments.

Re: Highlighting and Contouring Diagram

I'm so glad that you're enjoying it. Ive learned so much on this forum, I wanted to give a little back. I took the diagram in photoshop and colored it. This way I can apply without having to read. I've never really contoured before either.:smile:

Re: Highlighting and Contouring Diagram

Great work. The mouth thing- my oiliness takes care of that! So heads up if you have oily skin, it'll look nasty with highlighter on it. Same goes with forehead and chin

Re: Highlighting and Contouring Diagram

Im curious to know if any of you are going to try the lighter foundation for highlighting. I always wondered hoe celebs got the highlighted look with looking all shimmery.

Re: Highlighting and Contouring Diagram

thanks for the post.

you can also use cream concealer to highlight.

not too sure about the contour on the forehead.

Mally Beauty Shimmer, Shape & Glow Face Defining System can do the trick (three pans in one kit). This is what Mally uses on Beyonce, J Lo, Mariah Carey & Angelina Jolie.

Re: Highlighting and Contouring Diagram

I was going to try highlighting with my BE Bisque (I usually use it under my eyes) and for contouring BE warmth and then apply foundation over it. I hope this works ;) Since I've switched to MAC, I haven't had much chance to use my BE stuff. If they turn out, i'll post pics tomorrow.
Thanks ladies for all the luv I really appreciate it!

I just found the video that goes with the chart... Martha Stewart - Skinny Makeup Tips

Re: Highlighting and Contouring Diagram

Im also confused about contouring the forehead...doesn't it have a natural "depth"? But cool idea...never thought about using a lighter foundation to hilight, will have to try!

Re: Highlighting and Contouring Diagram

Thanks for posting, that's a really good diagram! So far I only put highlighter on/above my cheekbones (or where I think my cheekbones would be if I had any!), but I'd like to try contouring. Bronzer would probably look too tan though, so I'm going to try a darker foundation color first.
