    Completely agree with everything you’ve written here! The whole contouring and highlight business has gone crazy and the true purpose has been lost along the way! Great read!

    So well written. My go to rule with contouring is to always warm up the skin with bronzer if you use cool toned powder to contour. It makes it look a lot more natural and better on skin. xx

    A great article which I am saving! I am pretty basic with makeup and don’t really usually go for much in the way of highlighting/contouring as there are so many pieces of advice out there that you don’t want to end up looking like a clown! I will definitely refer to your do’s and don’ts for when I am going for my evening look xxxx

      That is one of the greatest compliments – actually saving the post! There is a lot of advice out there and sometimes that in itself can be more confusing. I kept it as a do’s and don’ts to try and be straightforward.
      I’m going to be looking out for your evening pics now. πŸ™‚ xxxxx

    Such a good and helpful post! I could not agree more with “Don’t: Assume the more highlight the better” and with contour “don’t: over do it”. I mean I love highlight and contour too but sometimes people really tend to overuse them. But then again everyone has different opinion on what looks good. xx

      Yes everyone has their own opinion and I guess makeup is about creative license, but I have seen some images where it looks like half a bottle of highlighter has been used. Each to their own right.
      Happy that you found the post helpful. xx

    Great article! I am currently studyig to become a makeup artist, but this article has really brought insight with things i didn’t even know. What youtube gurus do you follow?

    • lauzieslifestyle says

      I do not actually follow any specific gurus. Sometimes I watch videos. I am actually a makeup artist but I am in the progress of taking my career to writing.
      I hope your studying is going well and I happy that I could you more insight. I really recommend going to a makeup artist store and buying a couple of the makeup artist magazines. They contain information like this.
