Contouring and Highlighting your Best Features

Last month we said we would give you tips on how to contour, highlight and accentuate your best features to enhance and emphasise your complexion, creating a gorgeous glow in time for spring and summer. Contouring and highlighting is easy to achieve with the correct products, today we are using the benecos BB Cream, Powder brush, Rouge Brush, Eyeshadow Brush, Highlighting Powder, Toasted Toffee and Mallow Rose Powder Blushers.

 

Begin by applying the BB Cream (in your desired shade to suit your complexion) to your entire face, blending into the neck and out to the ears so you are creating an even, flawless base blank canvas to start.  

Highlighting Powder – illuminating and light reflecting mineral pigments creates the perfect balanced glow

Using a benecos large powder brush, swirl into the highlighter powder and brush on the following areas:

  • Apply to the apples of your cheeks, brushing upwards to the cheekbones and out to your temples – this contours and highlights your cheekbones

  • Apply to the bridge of your nose but avoiding the tip – this thins your nose

  • Apply to the eye brow bone and just below your eyebrows using an eyeshadow brush – this lightens and gives an instant brow lift illusion

  • Apply to the centre of the lips and cupids bow – this adds dimension and volume for a fuller pout and shines through your desired lip colour.

    Toasted Toffee Powder Blush – adds warmth, contours and enhances your radiant complexion

    Using a benecos blusher brush, lightly swirl into the blusher, tap excess powder and apply under the cheek bones blending towards the centre and outwards to the temples and hair line.

    Mallow Rose Powder Blush – Warm peachy tones

    Using the benecos blusher brush, lightly swirl into the blusher, tap excess powder and apply to the apples of your cheeks to add a burst of colour to finish the look.

    You can complete your contouring and highlighting flawless base, showing your best features, with a coating of mascara to your lashes and a pink shade of lipstick to your lips. For a more dramatic and glammed up look go for the defined smokey eyes and bold bright lips.
