Facial Contouring and Highlighting Guide

by Roxanne C.

I came across this in one of the threads of one of the MakeupTalk forums and thought I should share this with you. Here is a guide on facial contouring for those of you who aren’t quite sure how to do it. It talks about the different face shapes, how you can identify them and where you should highlight and shadow accordingly. The entire table below – words, pictures and all – were taken from MovingMakeup.co.uk.

This is very helpful. I need this guide for my face, as I am fairly new to highlighting and contouring. Thanks for sharing!

Hey! I did this guide a few years ago, but it still stands up well with todays trends. Many thanks for publishing my ideas on your page, and mentioning my website – I am now teaching makeup in Perth, Australia 🙂
