How To – Contour and Highlight

You will have seen the images of women highlighting and contouring their faces (I’m talking about you, Kardashians!) and as well as being super time consuming, sometimes it looks downright scary!

At Rageism Beauty we don’t want you to feel like applying makeup is a chore, and we want you look and feel like yourself.

We have created a beautiful crème bronzer and delicious opal pearl highlighter for highlighting and contouring that works for real women. Our delicious crème formulations leave your skin feeling hydrated and dewy as well as giving you a gorgeous, fresh look. Our crème products are formulated to melt into the skin, not sit in fine lines like powders do.

So, how to?

Prep your skin as usual – moisturiser, primer, foundation and concealer and then you are ready to start.

 BRONZE/CONTOUR      

  • Using a brush, apply Crème Bronze to cheek bones, along the jawline, the sides of the nose and forehead. See image 2 for where to apply.
  • Apply lightly and layer for more coverage. This is where crème bronzers are so easy to use! If you feel like you have overdone it, you can simply blend the bronzer with your fingers or a brush until you are happy with the coverage.
  • When you apply bronzer, think about where your face is touched by the sun to achieve the perfect sun kissed look.

HIGHLIGHTER       

  • Our Crème Highlighter allows targeted application to achieve the genuine glow that we all love.
  • Think about where the light will hit your face and apply the highlighter on those areas. Using your fingers, start on the point of the cheekbone and blend up towards the hairline, then apply on the bridge of the nose and your chin. You can also apply under the brow bone if you aren’t wearing eyeshadow.
  • The natural light catches the highlights and works with the shade of your bronzer to create dimension and the contrast of light and shade.
  • Our Champagne crème eyeshadow is a multitasker and can be used for highlighting.
  • Apply your blush (see our blog on  how-to Crème Blush) and finish with our beautiful mineral Highlighter Powder to set your look.
Contouring and highlighting is a snap and adds dimension and definition for mature faces.
