A Guide to Countouring
The 3 main products for a perfect contour isn't just your regular foundation plus a darker one to create the "shadow". For a perfect countouring you will need your regular foundation (because contouring in a skin without foundation can look really fake and unnatural), a bronze powder, preferably with no shimmer, or a darker foundation.
It can be either a powder formula or a cream formula, in both cases, make sure you blend the products really well, for a natural finish (both from Younique). A great set of brushes is highly recommended, since they are designed to buff the product in a natural way. Try the Younique brushes, as they are very good quality brushes that won't leave the cakey effect.
You also need a blush, for a healthy glow in your cheeks, and a little bit of the illuminator. Illuminator isn't exactly essential, but it will give you a nice glow of a fashion magazine model.
