Video Tutorial: How to Contour and Highlight

A lot of people are afraid to tackle contouring, because it seems like something best left to the pros. When I first discovered contouring, I tried it, only to come out looking like I was auditioning to be a gazelle in the chorus line of a Broadway production of The Lion King.

But with some practise, I think I've finally gotten the hang of it. I can't be bothered doing this everyday, but when I want to impress on a night out, this is my go-to contouring routine.

If you have any questions at all, please Facebook message or email me, or Tweet me, and I will get to you as soon as I can :)


Here is a picture of the finished look:


And here is the video!

This is an awesome contouring tutorial. I always tend to shy away from contouring cos it never turns out right. but with these tips, I'll definitely try and venture into it again. Thanks!

When I came across your YouTube channel I thought finally! Finally someone who's good and from Malaysia. See I follow a lot of YouTube make up gurus like Pixiwoo, Tanya Burr, Lisa Eldridge, Charlotte Tilburry and Michelle Phan.. And the problem is that the products they use we can't find in Malaysia and it's always a hassle to find dupes. So I was happy when I found your channel.. I thought finally someone who knows what she's doing and living in Malaysia. To my disappointment, most of the products you use are the same as all the ones I listed.. It's your channel and I respect that but maybe you can consider using products we can actually purchase in Malaysia or tell us on the video where we can actually purchase them.. Just my two cents worth.

Thank you so much! I've just started to change my eyebrows up a tiny bit, actually. Will post about it soon, if you're interested!

Good luck lovely! It's pretty easy once you get the hang of it, it just takes a couple of tries first :)
